For the Record
The articles listed below offer an archived record of all the previous seminars in the monthly "Second Tuesday" Book Collecting series given at Senate House.  

The seminars are organised and sponsored jointly by the Institute of English Studies (London University) and the Rare Book Society. The seminars are held at 6pm - almost invariably on the second Tuesday of each month - during the academic year. They are free, open to the public and aimed at a broad audience including book-collectors, book-dealers, historians of all kinds, librarians, indeed at anyone with an interest in collecting any sort of text from the sixth-former to the retired professor. The atmosphere is informal, as are the presentations.
