BRASILIANA IHGB 175 anos

A gente comprou muitos livros nas ultimas viagens e eu decidi que daria uma parada nas compras ate conseguir ler o que estah na fila.

Mas foi impossivel nao comprar esse livro. Ele pesa uns 3kg, tem mais de 700 paginas e cerca de 2300 imagens que reunem obras de arte, documentos, objetos e outras preciosidades do gigante acervo do Instituto Historico e Geografico Brasileiro.

E foi o eleito para meus momentos de quero ficar deitada de pernas pra cima e em silencio desse final de semana!

Beijos,

The earliest surviving intact European book, which lay buried in a saint's coffin for hundreds of years, has been bought by the British Library for £9million.

The seventh century St Cuthbert Gospel is on show at the library in King's Cross, north London.

It was purchased and saved for the nation after a multimillion-pound fundraising effort.

LIFE AND TIMES OF ST CUTHBERT

Dame Lynne Brindley, the British Library's chief executive, said: 'This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure the Gospel for the nation and we were both grateful and touched that so many people felt moved to support our campaign.'

The book was produced in the north of England in the late seventh century and buried alongside St Cuthbert, an early English Christian leader, on the island of Lindisfarne off the coast of Northumberland in around AD698.

The coffin was moved off the island to escape Viking raiders and taken to Durham, where the book, which is a copy of the Gospel of St John, was found when the coffin was opened at the cathedral in 1104. Its original red leather binding survives today.

Preserved: A page in the St Cuthbert Gospel, a remarkably preserved palm-sized book which is a manuscript copy of the Gospel of John in Latin

The single largest contribution to the campaign was a £4.5million grant from the National Heritage Memorial Fund but there were also donations from charitable trusts and the public.

Dame Lynne said: 'To look at this small and intensely beautiful treasure from the Anglo-Saxon period is to see it exactly as those who created it in the seventh century would have seen it.

'The exquisite binding, the pages, even the sewing structure survive intact, offering us a direct connection with our forebears 1,300 years ago.

'Its importance in the history of the book and its association with one of Britain’s foremost saints make it unique, so I am delighted to announce the successful acquisition of the St Cuthbert Gospel by the British Library.

'This precious item will remain in public hands so that present and future generations can learn from it.'

The book will also go on show in Durham next year.

The Very Rev Michael Sadgrove, Dean of Durham, said: 'It is the best possible news to know that the Cuthbert Gospel has been saved for the nation. For the people of Durham and north-east England, this is a most treasured book. Buried with Cuthbert and retrieved from his coffin, it held a place of great honour in Durham Cathedral Priory.'

Initial resting place: The book was buried alongside the English Christian leader at Lindisfarne Priory off the coast of Northumberland in around AD698, before being moved to Durham to escape Viking raiders
