Collections Conversations: Francis Van Hagen, Aberdeen's first named bookbinder

Francis Van Hagen's distinctive seventeenth century bindings cover over 100 books in the University's Special Collections. Whilst he may have been paid to bind books, it may be that he was not, first and foremost, a bookbinder.

To find out more about Van Hagan, join UoA Collections and Jane Pirie, Curator (Rare Books) at the University of Aberdeen for this week's Collections Conversation.
