The Fondation Martin Bodmer in Cologny in Geneva, hold over 150,000 titles in their possession, and manage to display a small number of the extraordinary treasures, like first editions of Shakespeare, Milton, Dante as well as an Egyptian "Book of the Dead" in their permanet exhbition. Lucky for us gardeners, the Fondation, this summer, are showing a superb collection of books related to gardens and gardening in their new show "Des Jardins et des livres" ("Books and gardens") in their temporary exhibition.
