The Barbara Goldsmith Rare Book Room

The Barbara Goldsmith Rare Book Room was dedicated on June 4, 1996. Its patron, Barbara Goldsmith, is a noted author, an advocate of paper and book preservation, and a Trustee of the American Academy in Rome. The architect, Michael Graves, FAAR'62, RAAR'79, is also a Trustee of the Academy and a book-lover. Their common goal was to create a state-of-the-art rare book room with controlled temperature and humidity, custom shelving, and appropriate housing material and lighting, all designed to enhance the life of the books. Trustee Robert S Pirie contributed support for a conservation survey of all the books destined for the collection, and Barbara Goldsmith has supported the continuation of preservation treatments, an ongoing process.

The rare book collection of the American Academy in Rome not only reflects the strengths of its parent Library but is also, in microcosm, a mirror of the interests and historical development of the Academy as a whole.


In this room are above all printed books of the 16th-18th centuries, although there are also several manuscripts and a selection of illustrated books of the 19th and 20th centuries. They include early editions of Greek and Latin authors, early treatises on art and architecture, compendia of antiquities, and guidebooks to Rome and other Italian cities. There are also some pop-up books and artists' books. The collection of rare books has been developed during more than a century, through the generosity of many donors, chiefly American. Some of the most notable donors may be identified through bookplates or through provenance records.

The rare book collection can be said to have begun in 1904-05 when Mr. and Mrs. Edward Brandegee of Boston deposited ca. 1,800 books on Rome and the art and artists of Italy at the American School of Classical Studies in Rome then located in Villa Bonghi on Via Vicenza. In 1913 (1911) the American School of Classical Studies merged with the American Academy in Rome, and in 1914, its Library moved to the Janiculum. The handsome new walnut-paneled Library inspired Eleonor de G. Cuyler to endow two alcoves on the subject of ancient art in memory of her brother, Cornelius C. Cuyler; income from the endowment was used not only for current books but also for valuable older works of the eighteenth century and earlier.

Other donors of rare and/or valuable books include: Thomas Waldo Story, son of the sculptor William Wetmore Story; the artist Elihu Vedder; Thomas Spencer Jerome, U.S. consular agent at Capri; J.P. Morgan, Esq. (42 catalogues from his father's collections); the painter William H. Herriman; Lewis Einstein, U.S. diplomat; Albert W. Van Buren, archaeologist and librarian; James Ackerman, FAAR'52, RAAR'75, architectural historian; Halsted Vander Poel, classical scholar; Eugene Berman RAAR'57, painter; musicologist Oliver Strunk and AAR Trustee Robert Pirie. The most recent addition (1995) is a collection of 34 early guides to Rome, gift of Walker Hancock FAAR'28; 8 volumes were bequeathed by Richard Krautheimer and some were bequeathed by Carmen Angleton and Ernest Hauser.

The rare books were intershelved with other books on the same subjects until 1964-65 when a cage was constructed for the most valuable volumes, including 84 rare books donated by Lewis Einstein. This was considered a temporary measure until a new wood-paneled room could be built, and no provisions were made for climate control. By 1980 the cage area was full of large folios piled on the table originally designated for readers.

The master plan (1991) by Studio Einaudi for the renovation of the McKim, Mead & White building revived the plan for a new Rare Book Room. Through the generosity of Barbara Goldsmith and the architectural vision of Michael Graves, this dream has finally been realized. The Barbara Goldsmith Rare Book Room provides an elegant home for precious volumes, while meeting all current technical standards for their preservation.

The room has been enriched with some works of art: the bust of Barbara Goldsmith by sculptor Lewis Iselin, a Cypro-Archaic amphora (bi-chrome IV ware, 7th c. BCE., from Larnaca, Cyprus), the head of an old man from a grave relief (Augustan, said to be from Rome, of white marble) and a portrait bust of Hermarchus (or Metrodorus?), a Roman copy of a Greek original of c. 270 BCE.

The room is open for two hours each afternoon (Monday-Friday) and provides consultation space for up to six readers at a time; about one hundred people visit the room every year and more than two hundred use the room as readers. The rare book collection includes 2,350 volumes; 143 volumes are from the sixteenth century. Of the ca. 220 guidebooks of Rome, 120 are in a small format, usually 12x19 cm and may thus be considered pocket guides used by pilgrims as they wandered through the streets of Rome, each in search of his or her personal vision of this exceptional city.

Music Collection

Music has played an important role at the American Academy in Rome since 1921, when the first Rome Prize Fellowships were awarded in Musical Composition.


The roster of Academy Fellows and Residents since then has mirrored the development of American music, including such prominent composers as Samuel Barber, Robert Beaser, Jack Beeson, Martin Bresnick, Elliott Carter, Aaron Copland, David Diamond, John Eaton, Lukas Foss, Alexei Haieff, Howard Hanson, John Harbison, Andrew Imbrie, Betsy Jolas, Ulysses Kay, Barbara Kolb, Salvatore Martirano, George Rochberg, Roger Sessions (photo at right), Harold Shapero, Randall Thompson, Charles Wuorinen, Yehudi Wyner and Ellen Taafe Zwilich, as well as many younger composers active today.

The formation of a music program at the American Academy in Rome was suggested as early as 1905 by composer Edward MacDowell, one of the Academy's original trustees, who hoped that "...the Arts of Architecture, Painting, Sculpture, and Music should come into such close contact that each and all should gain from this mutual companionship." MacDowell's proposal was brought to fruition only after the end of the First World War, when musical composition was added to the fields covered by the Arts at the Academy. One of the most vigorous proponents of the new music program at the Academy was Felix Lamond, organist, who became the first Professor of Music in Rome. In 1921, the Academy awarded the first Rome Prize in Musical Composition to Leo Sowerby, who was followed shortly thereafter by Howard Hanson and Randall Thompson. The first Residencies in Musical Composition, awarded to more senior composers, began in 1947 with awards to Samuel Barber and Douglas Stuart Moore.

Two annual Rome Prize Fellowships in Musical Composition are currently offered — the Frederic A. Juilliard/Walter Damrosch Rome Prize and the Samuel Barber Rome Prize - and an annual residency (the Paul Fromm Composer in Residence). Composers also participate in the Visiting Artists and Scholars Program. In addition, the Rome Prize Fellowships in Ancient Studies and in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies have supported the work of musicologists at the Academy.

The Academy's active concert program has long brought contemporary American classical music to Italian and American listeners. In the 1920s, the work of Academy composers was performed by the Augusteo, Rome's major orchestra, through the good auspices of the composer Ottorino Respighi. In 1934, when Samuel Barber won the Rome Prize in Musical Composition, NBC broadcast the announcement across the United States with a performance of one of Barber's own works. In 1950-51 the Academy began a long and fruitful relationship with the Radio Televisione Italiana Orchestra, locally known as Rome's RAI Orchestra. By the 1960s, RAI began regularly taping and broadcasting American music, and eventually over eighty works were heard by an international audience - over half of these compositions in first performance. The RAI series was also broadcast by WFLN in Philadelphia and over its associated stations throughout the United States in the mid-1980s.

The Academy's musical program in Rome is currently directed by composer-pianist Richard Trythall, FAAR '67, RAAR '71, the Academy's Music Liaison. This program includes the annual "Spring Concert" of chamber music composed by the Fellows in Musical Composition, as well as other concerts featuring American and Italian contemporary music. The Academy frequently collaborates with Roman musical organizations and each year hosts the opening day of concerts sponsored by "Nuova Consonanza," the leading contemporary music group in Rome.

Each composer at the Academy has a personal studio, equipped with a grand piano, as well as access to the Academy's Electronic Music Studio, which houses audio and computer equipment for listening and composing. The Electronic Music Studio also contains records, CDs, and a unique historical collection of tape recordings of Academy concerts from the early 1950s to the present. With the help of the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, the concert recordings were digitized in 2003 and cataloged in the Library's catalog

Microfilm & Microfiche

Lists of uncataloged microfilm reels in the Library.


Cicognara Project

Conte Leopoldo Cicognara (1767-1834) collected a famous library of approximately five thousand books on art, archaeology, and kindred subjects. The books date, in a virtually unbroken sequence, from the beginning of printing to Cicognara's time. It was the largest and most judiciously selected library in the field ever brought together. To this day its possession establishes the Vatican Library as a generously equipped center for studies in the literature and the history of art and classical archaeology as well as of art criticism, taste, and aesthetics. The microfiche collection stems from a joint program of the Vatican Library and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is now becoming available online at http://cicognara.org/
