Chicago (IL). Consul General Lacroix visits the Newberry Library
On November 17, Consul General of France Guillaume Lacroix, Cultural Attaché Tanguy Accart and Deputy Marine Reuflet discovered the rich collections of the Newberry Library.
A world-renowned independent research library in Chicago, the Newberry offers readers an extensive noncirculating collection of rare books, maps, music, manuscripts, and other printed material spanning six centuries.
There are several discrete collections of French pamphlets at the Newberry, spanning the 16th through the 19th centuries. One of them is the French Revolution Collection. It consists of more than 30000 pamphlets and more than 23000 issues of 180 periodicals published between 1780 and 1810. The collection was acquired by the Newberry between 1957 and 1961 from Michel Bernstein, a book dealer in Paris.
