Visit to the Cambridge University Library – Rare Book Collection

June 22 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm

A visit to the Rare Books Collection of Cambridge University Library. Numbers are restricted to 15 people (due to the size of the room). The visit will last from 11:00 to 16:30 with three sessions:

 

11:00 to 12:30  Fine Bindings

 

12:30 to 13:15  Lunch break – there is a café in the building

 

13:15 to 14:45  Falling apart books – a look at some of the early books in the
collection which are in need of conservation so we can look at the
structure of the bindings.

14:45 to 15:00  Tea break

 

15:00 to 16:30  Hopefully a talk by a member of the conservation department, or if

that cannot be arranged a look at some more examples of binding.
