Professor Rab Houston has launched the podcast series The History of Psychiatry in Britain since the Renaissance.
Members of the Universal Short Title Catalogue attended the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing annual conference, this year held at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. They presented their current research connected with a new initiative entitled ‘Preserving the World’s Rarest Books’. Supported by the Andrew Mellon Foundation, this new programme seeks to help libraries identify and conserve their rarest items. Professor Andrew Pettegree discussed ‘Survival and Loss in the Early Modern Book World’, Dr Graeme Kemp spoke on ‘Jacques Charles Brunet’s Manuel du libraire et de l’amateur des livres and the World’s Rarest Books’, while Dr Shanti Graheli discussed ‘Italian Books in French Libraries: Bibliophilie, Rarity and Survival’.
