181 David Watkinson's Library: One Hundred Years In Hartford Connecticut, 1866-1966.
Watkinson Library at Trinity College, Hartford: 1966. h Hardcover. Brand new book. 
David Watkinson's Library narrates the founding and history of the David Watkinson Library from 1866 to 1966. When David Watkinson died in 1857, the major provisions for the establishment of the library were contained in his will. Watkinson had determined one hundred thousand dollars would be invested and managed by the board of trustees to establish connections with the Connecticut Historical Society as a reference to be accessible to all citizens or visitors of the state of Connecticut. He also specified that money be used to build the new library as an addition to the Connecticut Historical Society, to hire a librarian appointed by the society, to purchase the Wadsworth Atheneum, and to create a Library Fund. Beginning with a biography of the life of David Watkinson and ending with an account of Ruth A. Kerr's (the third librarian) tenure, the book describes every major element of the library. The book discusses Watkinson's idea, conception of the library, other libraries in Hartford, the growth of the library, the various librarians, developing collections, management, the transition to Trinity College, and many other records of the Watkinson library. A foreword, illustration credits, biographical sketches of trustees, a bibliography, and an index are also included. Finally, three appendixes list Watkinson Library Documents, Trustees, and a Chronology of Events.

183 Defending National Treasures: French Art And Heritage Under Vichy.
Stanford University Press, Palo Alto: 2011. Karlsgodt, Elizabeth Campbell. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Defending National Treasures explores the fate of art and cultural heritage during the Nazi occupation of France. The French cultural patrimony was a crucial locus of power struggles between German and French leaders and among influential figures in each country. Karlsgodt examines the preservation policy that the Vichy regime enacted in an assertion of sovereignty over French art museums, historic monuments, and archeological sites. The limits to this sovereignty are apparent from German appropriations of public statues, Jewish-owned art collections, and key "Germanic" works of art from French museums. A final chapter traces the lasting impact of the French wartime reforms on preservation policy. In Defending National Treasures, Karlsgodt introduces the concept of patrimania to reveal examples of opportunism in art preservation. During the war, French officials sought to acquire coveted artwork from Jewish collections for the Louvre and other museums; in the early postwar years, they established a complicated guardianship over unclaimed art recovered from Germany. A cautionary tale for our own times, Defending National Treasures examines the ethical dimensions of museum acquisitions in the ongoing noble quest to preserve great works of art. Elizabeth Campbell Karlsgodt is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Denver. "This book makes several critical arguments, including a strongly documented case for continuity in French cultural policy from the Third Republic through Vichy and the postwar years. Karlsgodt shows that French cultural policy during the Occupation must be understood more in terms of domestic interests than as a function of collaboration with the Germans. She raises important ethical questions about museum acquisitions policies, not only in Vichy France, but also in postwar France and elsewhere."—Bertram Gordon, Mills College
