Copies of LC letters in the Norwegian National Library

Postby jongrep » Wed Jun 05, 2019 3:00 pm

Copies of Leonard Cohen's letters to Marianne (which are now at auction at Christie's) have been handed over to the Norwegian National Library according to the website of NRK, the Norwegian government-owned radio and television broadcasting company:

"Kopier av alle brevene er overlevert Nasjonalbiblioteket for at de skal bli bevart."

Unforntunately the information I posted earlier today was inaccurate. The article on NRK's website was changed at 18:15 local time today:

"Denne artikkelen ble endret 05.06 kl.18.35: I en tidligere versjon av denne artikkelen skrev NRK at kopier av alle brevene er overlevert Nasjonalbiblioteket for at de skal bli bevart. Dette ble endret til at Nasjonalbiblioteket gjerne tar imot digitale kopier av brevene, men at dette materialet foreløpig ikke har kommet inn."

Translation: "This article was changed at 18:35: In an earlier version of this article NRK wrote that copies of all the letters have been handed over to the National Library to be preserved. This information was changed. The National Library would like to have digital copies of the letters, but so far the Library has not received any copies."
