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.
A team of librarians, Etonians and Old Etonians will be speaking at the @IES_London @ABARareBooks seminar on book collecting on 10 July: 'Eton College Library and its young collectors'.
