From Venice to Boston: The Awgerean Brothers, Hamilton Fish, and Vartan Gregorian ~ Treasures of NAASR's Mardigian Library
In this Treasures of the NAASR Mardigian Library feature we highlight two titles that are related to each other in both obvious and rather exceptional ways. They are part of the extraordinary body of work of two brilliant brothers from Ankara who became Mekhitarist monks in Venice. They passed through the hands of a noted 19th century American statesman, other unknown owners, and "the savior of the New York Public Library" on their journey to NAASR's Mardigian Library.
We offer this in tribute to all of those who keep the spirit of learning and the love of books alive, from the Mekhitarist Fathers of San Lazzaro to Vartan Gregorian.
