As you can imagine I get lots of notices from other Livery Companies about their annual lectures and mostly I file them away as the subjects can be very abstruse!
However the subject of this year's lecture of the Company of Arts Scholars, Dealers and Collectors caught my eye. It is 'London Matters - Maps and Mentalities over the Centuries' and it is by Peter Barber, Head of Map Collections at the British Library. I thought that the combination of maps and the history of London might well be of interest to Stationers. The date is Tuesday, 25 October 2011 at 6 pm in Austin Friars.
So I am delighted to bring it to your attention in this blog. A flyer with more details of the event and a booking form can be downloaded here.
If you do have a chance to go, please let me know whether you enjoyed it.
