Lost Libraries 2: a walk through some more of London’s forgotten book collections

decoration14 Aug. 2014
Twenty-first century London contains some of the finest book collections in the world, but what about the libraries that haven’t survived? If you know where to look, London’s streets and alleyways are crammed with the ghosts of libraries past.
 
This brand new walk will carry you back through London’s history, to long-forgotten libraries, readers, librarians and collectors. In the company of Alice Ford-Smith (Bernard Quaritch Ltd), Lost Libraries 2 uncovers further links between London’s past and present book collections.
