TODAY’S MESOP QUOTATION : Turkish National Library sold books to a junk company

“The library sold 147 tons of books to a junk company at a price of 7 to 25 cents a kg. Most of them were antiquarian titles and serial in Armenian, Greek and Karamanlica (Turkish using Greek alphabet). The reason is that the TNL does not have staff who can read Armenian, Greek, Hebrew, Judeospanish or Assyrian.” (Rifat Bali, EXLIBRIS)
