|Venue:||Durning-Lawrence Room, Senate House Library|

The October ABA Seminar will be given by Julian Browning of Julian Browning Autographs. An accomplished and entertaining speaker, with over thirty years experience in the antiquarian book and manuscript trade, Julian specializes in the sale of autograph letters, historical documents and manuscripts dating from about 1450 to 1950, with a particular focus on British and European history and literature. He rescues interesting letters by obscure and less well known names, as well as more significant letters and documents written or signed by famous historical figures.
All the ABA seminars will be aimed at a broad audience including collectors, dealers, historians of all kinds, librarians, indeed at anyone with an interest in collecting any sort of text from the sixth former to the retired professor. The atmosphere will be informal, as will the presentations.
