Albeit somewhat delayed, here are the photos from the launch of this year’s programme. Lambeth Palace were kind enough to host us and we’re sure you’ll agree- the palace’s library was stunning!
The current President, Kayleigh Betterton, began the speeches by reiterating the society’s aims and thanking our benevolent launch-party sponsors, Bonhams. Giles Mandelbrote, Lambeth Palace’s librarian and archivist, then delighted the audience by giving us a brief history of the library; followed by Ed Maggs, of Maggs Bros Books, who emphasised the need for dealers to appeal to a younger generation of collectors.
And after that, all that was left to do was to drink the wine, eat the canapes and enjoy the company of fellow bibliophiles.
We’re very much looking forward to our next event which will be on the 29th November- a talk by Rick Gekoski, followed by a drinks reception. The talk will be hosted by Queen Mary University at the Lock Keepers Cottage on Regents Canal- to register follow this link.
We look forward to seeing you there.
