The Book in the Low Countries – Colloquium, 29 April 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — fhartree @ 9:56 am

On Thursday, 29 April W.A Kelly from the Scottish Centre of the Book held another colloquium on the history of the book in a particular area, this time dealing with the Low Countries. Once more we were able to attract five speakers of a very high calibre from The Netherlands and Flanders, who spoke on a variety of topics ranging from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century.  It is hoped that the papers given, supplemented by one or two others, will be published inhouse in the near future by Merchiston Publishing. Next year the area to be covered will be Russia, when, it is hoped, we can enjoy once more the hospitality of the National Library of Scotland.
