We would like to let you know that the Fondation Hardt currently offers a special volume that tells the story of the Baron Kurd von Hardt (1889-1958) and the history of the institution he founded:

“This book recounts the extraordinary destiny of a man and the success of the work to which he devoted his life and fortune: a foundation dedicated to the study of classical antiquity. In 1950 Kurd von Hardt, a German Baron, acquired a large estate in VandÅ“uvres in the Canton of Geneva. There he opened a research centre that would achieve international recognition. Nicolas Gex, a historian, presents the biography of the Baron, the history of the Foundation, the library as well as the Entretiens sur l’Antiquité classique. Térence Le Deschault de Monredon, an art historian, analyses the collection of works assembled by Kurd von Hardt. Christine Amsler, a specialist in the regional history of Geneva, discusses the district of Chougny, an area known as La Chandoleine, from its origins in the seventeenth century to the present.” [translation of the original text in French]

The Fondation allows a substantial discount on offers placed before 28 October 2016. Please follow the link to obtain more information.
