Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica wieder eröffnet

“December 16, 2011 was an important day for the study of Hermeticism and related currents. After a year of disaster, in which the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica came close to extinction, the library re-opened its doors to the public and celebrated that event with a new exhibition, Infinite Fire.”

Die Bibliothek soll nun schuldenfrei sein:

Zu den Verkäufen, zu denen Ritman gezwungen war:
“The owner himself had to sell some 350 books from his collection to the value of 13 million euros to fulfil his financial obligations. These books were mainly incunabula, the oldest printed books, which he claims are also to be found in other Dutch libraries. But a copy of the first illustrated edition of Dante’s La Divina Commedia, printed in 1472, is also gone.”
