BOOK CLUB OF CALIFORNIA GRANT
In October, the Board of Directors of the Book Club of California voted to
establish a fellowship program at RBS, supporting three Book Club of
California Fellowships to be awarded each year. The first Book Club Fellows
will be named in 2004.

GLADYS KRIEBLE DELMAS FOUNDATION GRANT
In August, the Trustees of the Delmas Foundation approved a $15,000 grant
to support fellowships at RBS in medieval codicology and paleography. The
first group of Delmas Fellowships will be awarded to students attending
Albert Derolez's codicology and paleography courses in the summer of 2004,
in a special competition; watch the Fellowships page of the RBS Web site

http://www.virginia.edu/oldbooks/fellowships/

for details, which will be announced later this month.

PHILLIPPS COLLECTION MATERIALS from H. P. KRAUS
In November, H. P. Kraus, Inc., the celebrated NYC firm of antiquarian
booksellers, put eight boxes containing miscellaneous printed and
manuscript materials on deposit with RBS, much of it detritus from the
collections formed in the c19 by Sir Thomas Phillipps. The material has
been lent in part to support Nicolas Barker's new RBS course on the history
of European handwriting (see above); it is the probable intention of the
firm eventually to donate this material to RBS.

BUCHTEL TO HOPKINS
John Buchtel, half-time Curator of RBS Collections since 2001 and a member
of its program staff since 1997, has accepted an appointment as Curator of
Rare Books at Johns Hopkins University. He expects to take up his new
duties at Hopkins in late January, shortly after defending his UVa English
department dissertation. He can be reached at his UVa email address:
