I am delighted that Stationers' Hall will again be hosting the annual Conference on Book Trade History on Sunday, 25 November and Monday, 26 November 2012.
The theme of the conference is Finance - an apposite topic in these difficult times!
Some of you may remember that last year's conference was made somewhat low-brow by my own paper on the history of the Alden Press!! However it is a return to business as usual this year: with a fine selection of true academic contributors, including my friend Christine Ferdinand, who is Fellow Librarian at Magdalen College, Oxford, and two distinguished professors. The conference ends with a visit to the Bank of England Museum, unless the Government has sold all the exhibits in the meantime to save the nation's economy!
The conference is organised, as always, by our own dear Archivist Emeritus, Robin Myers, and it would good to see it well supported by Members of the Company and book lovers everywhere. You can download a flyer by clicking here.
