Talk and book signing at Markenfield with thanks to The Little Ripon Bookshop

In his most recent book, The Posthumous Papers of the Manuscripts Club, Christopher de Hamel gathers, into the club, the people throughout history who have devoted their lives to manuscripts – scribes, monks and patrons, as well as collectors, curators and forgers. Using research and imagination, he brings them to life, taking the reader on visits in time and location, to discuss and share their delight in making and using illuminated manuscripts. We will visit castles, monasteries, synagogues, and museums, to meet fellow enthusiasts from Saint Anselm in the eleventh century to the mysterious American femme fatale Belle Da Costa Greene in the twentieth, all with stories and wonderful books to show.
