Collecting Spanish Books


Collecting Spanish Books
The May 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 bookseller Leo Cadogan (Leo Cadogan Rare Books Ltd).

He spoke about Spanish printing and how the books can be special and unusual, discussed bibliographical resources, and talked about the different subject areas and price levels in which the books can be collected.

The seminar took place on Tuesday 13 May 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.
