This volume makes available a series of lectures which complemented the Hofmannsthal exhibition mounted in 1961 by the Institute of Germanic Studies in conjunction with the Austrian Institute in London. Dr Hadamowsky, of the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna, who had arranged a similar commemorative exhibition in Salzburg, advised on the project and contributes an introductory essay in which he discusses succinctly and authoritatively the complicated technical aspects which must guide any attempt to arrange a literary exhibition of this type.
