Collecting Association Copies


Collecting Association Copies
The March 2015 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 Christopher Edwards.

Christopher Edwards has been an independent dealer in rare books for more than twenty years. He discussed Association Copies – what they are, how to spot them, and what makes them valuable to the dealer, collector and scholar. Examples from his own collection were passed around.

The seminar took place on Tuesday 10th March 2015 – Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU. The seminars are free and open to the public. There is no need to book and all are very welcome.

The seminars are aimed at a broad audience including book-collectors, booksellers, 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 6.00pm on the second Tuesday of each month.
