At a time when information is increasingly a digital commodity, the long history of the book from the first codices through the introduction and spread of printing is ever more important; with research libraries and their unique and rare holdings bearing witness to the development of ideas. Distinguished book historians Professor David McKitterick, Dr Patrick Spedding and Dr Stephanie Downes will shed light on new directions in their discipline, showing how books and the people who made, collected or read them tell through their stories much about the history of human thought.
