The acquisition of Le Roman de la Rose was made possible by gifts from the Visiting Committee to the Library, the University of Chicago Library Society, individual donors, and the B. H. Breslauer Foundation, and funds from Library endowments. A number of faculty members from several departments assisted the fundraising effort through their strong support for the research and teaching value of reuniting the manuscripts.
