Title
The Imprint of the Scholar : An Analysis of the Printed Books of McGill University's Raymond Klibansky Collection
Abstract
The German-born Raymond Klibansky (1905-2005) was professor in the Department of Philosophy at McGill University for three decades, starting in 1946. Klibansky, an historian of philosophy, donated his library of over 7,000 books to McGill University in 2005. The author's study provides an introduction to the collection in its main characteristics and research strengths; offers an aid to further research on the collection; and builds on what is known about Klibansky and his life with books. The author points out that her work is organized around a core set of themes: collection contents; provenance; and book organization. The book-life of Klibansky is a theme that permeates the whole.
