      "St. Charles Borromeo Seminary called for a lectionary to be used during archdiocesan liturgical ceremonies and one which would match their grandeur. To fill this need and to present a gift to St. Charles Borromeo, a priest-professor from the Seminary commissioned Fritz Eberhardt to create a binding that combined religious symbolism with aesthetic quality . . . The Lectionary is one of Eberhardt's most successful creations"--Legacies of Genius: A Celebration of Philadelphia Libraries 28.
