Thursday 26th February

A talk by Professor Jane Stevenson, Regius Chair of Humanity.

This talk begins by asking 'what is an early Scottish book'? After a brief look at the history of books in Scotland, Professor Stevenson will turn to a consideration of the first Scots to be involved with printing and publication, and the involvement of Bishop Elphinstone with Scotland's first press. The talk will also look at Elphinstone as an author and a book-owner.
