Seminars on various aspects of book collecting are held regularly at the University of London’s Senate House in central London. Organised jointly by the Institute of English Studies (London University) and the ABA Educational Trust, the speakers are all drawn from among the leading booksellers, academics, historians and collectors in the field. Admission is free to all – and all are welcome.
The seminars are aimed at a very broad audience including book-collectors, would-be 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 friendly and informal, as are the presentations. They commence at 6pm, last for an hour or two, questions are always welcome, and there are always signs at Senate House directing you to the right seminar-room.
Details of the coming season are given on the flyer - and there are always up to date details in the Seminars section and in the Events Calendar.
