Local Notes
SPECIAL COLLECTIONS: Imperfect: family record pages following the Old Testament have been torn out. Original black cloth. From the library of Joan St. Clair Crane, with her note "Josiah Q. Bennett used this copy of the Douay version to collate the Schuckburgh Gutenberg Bible for Scribner's in 195-." Contains annotations in red pencil. "In 1828 63 leaves of vol. I and 261 leaves of vol. II [of the Gutenberg Bible] were discovered in a farmhouse in Olewig, near Trier, by Johann Hugo Wyttenbach, the founder of the Trier Stadtsbibliothek. The fragment of volume I was acquired by the Counts von Seilern in the late nineteenth century and is still in the possession of that family. Vol. II remained in the Trier Library until this century, when the city of Trier sold it. It appeared at Sotheby's on 21 June 1937, where it was purchased by Dr. A. S. W. Rosenbach for Arthur Houghton, Jr. After acquiring the Schuckburgh copy in 1953, Houghton sold the Trier volume to Scribner's Sons of New York, who broke it up. The largest fragment went to George A. Poole, Jr. of Chicago, whose collection was later acquired by the Lilly Library, other fragments went to Southern Methodist University and to the Viscount von Seilern, and most of the remaining leaves ... were sold individually. (Cf. Don Cleveland Norman, The 500th Anniversary Pictorial Census of the Gutenberg Bible, Chicago 1961, pp. 112-113)."
