John, I'm directing this to the list as well as to you directly.  I
responded yesterday to the list, but have not seen that reply yet...

Your local art museum has a directory of world museums.  Perhaps they can
tell you the name, info over the telephone.

The Celtic Studies Association of North America is a good group
(professional, publishing in nature) to inquire into.  I can provide info
if you desire.

>I have just about exhausted the local libraries (T.G.E. Powell, Nora Chadwick,

The exhibition catalogue from that Munich show is the one to see/own.  It's
large (about 2 inches thick, about 15 inches by 18 inches), and is complete
with contributions from the world's best current Celtic experts.  There is,
of course, a large bibliography in the back.  My local art museum library
had a hard copy, I ordered a softback copy from a bookstore in NYC.  Info
forthcoming, if you desire.  Hope this helps.  Best, Sherry
