Event description

Description

Tuesday 4 June, 5.30pm (admittance not before 5pm)

Dr Jean-Pascal Pouzet (University of Limoges and CESCM, Poitiers): ‘The Library of Richard Holdsworth (1590-1649): New Light on the Manuscripts’.

Richard Holdsworth – academic, preacher, theologian and bibliophile – bequeathed his entire library to the University of Cambridge, comprising more than 10,000 volumes (some 185 manuscripts, 215 incunables and 9,695 printed books). On its arrival in 1664, this amounted to a second foundation of Cambridge University Library, but it has barely been studied at all. This presentation offers a survey of current research on the collection, together with the first tangible results on Holdsworth’s manuscripts, set within a broader frame of reflection about the process of bibliographic and bibliophilic creation.

In association with the University of London research seminar on the History of Libraries. For any queries please call 020 7 898 1400, or email melissa.harrison@churchofengland.org.


Guests should arrive via the main Gatehouse of Lambeth Palace.
