Lecture | Rare Books Edinburgh
Lyon & Turnbull is pleased to invite you to join us for a lecture in conjunction with Rare Books Edinburgh. Book history has emerged in last twenty years as one of the most important new fields of interdisciplinary study. It has produced new interpretations of major historical events and made possible new approaches to history, literature, media and culture. It also offers a distinctive historical perspective on current debates about the future of the book. In this accessible talk, Tom Mole, Director of the Centre for the History of the Book at the University of Edinburgh, introduces key concepts of Book History to non-specialists and offers a road map to this dynamic interdisciplinary field. This event is part of Rare Books Edinburgh 2017, a new festival celebrating rare and collectable books and book history. The festival runs from 20-30 March and includes the Edinburgh Book Fair, Scotland's largest rare & collectable book fair, on 24 and 25 March.
