Seventeenth-Century Library Benefactors Books in Oxford Colleges: Some Examples and Some Uses

05 February 2013, 17:30 - 19:30

Event Type: Seminar


Dr William Poole (New College, Oxford)


This talk will concern the rise of the genre following the opening of the Bodleian Library, and how we can exploit college examples of the form for different historical purpose; in other words not just to track the growth of specific collections per se but to ask if and how far such resources can be used to discuss intellectual change more generally.

Venue: The Jessel Room (Senate House, first floor)
