3,500 Occult Manuscripts Will Be Digitized Thanks to Dan Brown: Critical Linking, December 22
Critical Linking is sponsored by Eve of the Pharaoh by R.M. Schultz.
Brown, the Ritman notes, “is a great admirer of the library and visited on several occasions while writing his novels The Lost Symbol and Inferno.” Now he’s giving back. Some of the revenue generated by his bestselling novels, along with a €15,000 contribution from the Dutch Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, will allow the library’s core collection, “some 3,500 ancient books,” to come online soon in an archive called “Hermetically Open.”
Dan Brown being so Dan Brown.
