Seminars on Book Collecting – Books, Cracks, and Squeezing a Rainbow

decoration12 July 2016
The final seminar of the series will take place on Tuesday 12th July 2016. Roger Treglown will take the form of thoughts and reminiscences on his thirty-five years in the business. Beginning as a specialist in  books on chess in 1980, he now deals across the board in antiquarian books, pamphlets and ephemera from an office in Macclesfield.  He has been a member of the ABA Council for fifteen years, managed the ABA Chelsea Bookfair Committee for thirteen years and has been a member of the ABA Olympia Committee for five years. He has also been the Honorary Librarian of the Association since 2004.

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 6.00pm on the second Tuesday of each month.
