Scope and Contents: Gustav Groeber was a world-recognized Romance scholar and a Professor of Romance Philology at the University of Strassburg. His collection's greatest strength was Provencal and Italian literatures and linguistics; however, all Romance languages and dialects were well-represented, and many volumes of classical, English, and Germanic works were included. In addition to the book material, there was a large collection of dissertations and other studies in pamphlet form, representing nearly every brochure on Romance topics published in Germany during the period of 1880-1910.
