LRDG visit to the Hesketh Collection
Date: 10 May 2010 Time: 1.30 - 2.30 pm
Venue: Lancaster University Library
At 1.30pm on 10th May 2010 (NB Monday rather than our usual Tuesday) we will have a private viewing of the Hesketh collection in the library. This extraordinary collection is temporarily on loan to the university.
This is a wonderful opportunity to view this remarkable collection - some items you can hold for yourself. See the first editions of Shakespeare and Ben Johnson's collected works, the first item off the Caxton press, a C11th prayer book, enormous C19th folia containing stunning botanical and ornithological paintings, a portfolio of original Redoute paintings and letters from Queen Elizabeth I to Mary, Queen of Scots.
This collection will shortly be returned into private hands, probably to be sold and possibly even leave the country.
In order to join the visit you must pre-register by sending your name in advance to Jessica Abrahams (firstname.lastname@example.org). Places for this visit are limited to 10; however if you are unsuccessful in joining this group we will suggest an alternative arrangement to you. If you do book and have to drop out though, please let us know.
Meet just inside the library at 1.25pm. The visit will last one hour.
This event is on Monday of Week 4, not our regular meeting day of Tuesday.
