Seminars on Book Collecting at Senate House - Collecting Medieval Manuscripts

decoration12 March 2013

The seminar on collecting medieval manuscripts will be given by Nicholas Poole-Wilson who joined the world-famous bookselling business of Bernard Quaritch Ltd. (founded in 1847) in 1967 and became a director in 1973. For many years Nicholas Poole-Wilson supervised Quaritch’s speciality in continental books and manuscripts, dealing in medieval manuscripts, incunabula and early printed books in a variety of subjects and European languages.

The seminars on various aspects of book collecting are held regularly on the second Tuesday of each month of the academic year at the University of London’s Senate House in central London. Organised jointly by the Institute of English Studies (London University) and the Rare Book Society, the speakers are all drawn from among the leading booksellers, academics, historians and collectors. The seminars are aimed at a broad audience including bookcollectors, antiquarian booksellers, historians, librarians, and anyone with an interest in collecting.
