35th Annual Conference on Book Trade History

Working for the Booksellers: Authors and Publishers in Book Trade History

Sunday 24 & Monday 25 November 2013
at Stationers' Hall
Ave Maria Lane, London EC4M 7DD

The movement of manuscript into print can be a difficult as well as a rewarding process. Authors and publishers often have different agendas, as well as status, and the negotiations around money and content can lead to an uneasy relationship. This year's speakers will describe the trials and tribulations of authors and their relations with booksellers, as well as delving into the dark corners of some rogue publishers.

The conference is organised by Michael Harris, Giles Mandelbrote and Robin Myers, in association with the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association Educational Trust.

The conference will include a reception at Stationers' Hall on Sunday evening and a visit to Guildhall Library to see the Elkanah Settle collection on Monday afternoon.

The proceedings of previous conferences and a selection of antiquarian books will be available for purchase during the conference.

The conference fee includes coffee and lunch on both days, the reception on Sunday evening and the Guildhall Library visit.

Registered students may apply for a limited number of reduced-rate places, sponsored by the Bibliographical Society.
