Taste and Technique in Book Collecting - Updated for the Digital Age


Taste and Technique in Book Collecting - Updated for the Digital Age
The March 2014 seminar in the book-collecting series organised jointly by the Institute of English Studies (London University) and the Rare Book Society was given by Jim Hinck, bookseller, but also the founder and coder of vialibri.net, a website created to help bibliophiles find books on the internet.

The seminar took place on Tuesday 11 March 2014 at Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU. 

The seminars are aimed at a broad audience including book-collectors, book-dealers, historians of all kinds, librarians, indeed at anyone with an interest in collecting any sort of text from the sixth-former to the retired professor. The atmosphere is informal, as are the presentations. They are held in the University of London’s Senate House and run from 6.00 to 7.30 pm on the second Tuesday of each month. The seminars are free and open to the public. There is no need to book and all are very welcome.
