Exploring Europe at the British Library

Call for papers: Seminar on Textual Bibliography for Modern Foreign Languages, 2 June 2014

We are seeking four or five papers of approximately 30 minutes each, dealing with any aspect of printing and book production in Continental Eastern and Western Europe. Papers dealing with other aspects of historical bibliography, editing, and the history of the book and reading are also warmly invited. Accounts of work in progress or offers to introduce discussion of bibliographical interest are a long-standing feature of the seminar.
