Kayleigh Betterton (University of London Society of Bibliophiles) & Leo Cadogan (Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association Educational Trust)

The focus of these lectures and seminars is on bibliophilia and the book trade. Book-collectors, dealers and auctioneers are invited to give a lecture on a subject of their choosing which relates to the practice of bibliophilia. Lectures may be anecdotal, academic or purely for entertainment, with a special focus this year on widening access in book-collecting. With this in mind, the programme is jointly-coordinated and run by the University of London’s new Society of Bibliophiles.


The Book Collecting Seminars will start from 9 October 2018. To find out information on the seminars for the 2018/19 academic year, you can follow the link to the IES website or go directly to the seminar schedule.
