Literary history, especially in the period 1780&ndash;1830, usually associates them with dark satanic mills, a time and place when the &ldquo;human&rdquo; was sacrificed to the &ldquo;machine,&rdquo; or the &ldquo;mathesis,&rdquo; as Catherine Gallagher puts it, of Malthus&rsquo;s dark materialism (itself an idea that emerged from within the region). This lecture traces the literary and philosophical societies, starting with Manchester in 1781, as they struggled to create a space for the &ldquo;literary&rdquo; within a transpennine enlightenment. The networks of improvement that linked together Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Leeds, and Sheffield represented a distinctive kind of knowledge economy where the exchange of ideas was modeled as &ldquo;literary conversation,&rdquo; a format that often struggled to square off the collision of mind with mind within the parameters of politeness and useful knowledge and work out the relations among literature, technology, and science. The results were diverse but always something more than Thomas De Quincey&rsquo;s stabilizing and comforting binary of a literature of power and a literature of knowledge.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> <p>&nbsp;</p> Jon Mee is Professor of Eighteenth-Century Studies at the University of York, where he was Director of the Centre of Eighteenth-Century Studies before coming to the Huntington Library as R. Stanton Avery Distinguished Professor for 2016&ndash;17. Before moving to York, he was Professor of English at the Universities of Warwick and Oxford and Margaret Candfield Fellow in English at University College Oxford. He has also held visiting fellowships at the Australian National University, University of Delhi, and University of Chicago. He has published widely in the literature, politics, and culture of Britain in the period 1780&ndash;1830, most recently bringing out a monograph from Cambridge University Press,&nbsp;Print, Publicity, and Popular Radicalism: The Laurel of Liberty&nbsp;(2016). His previous monographs were&nbsp;Dangerous Enthusiasm: William Blake and the Culture of Radicalism in the 1790s&nbsp;(Oxford University Press, 1992);&nbsp;Romanticism, Enthusiasm, and Regulation, Poetics and the Policing of Culture in the Romantic Period&nbsp;(Oxford University Press, 2003);&nbsp;The Cambridge Introduction to Charles Dickens&nbsp;(Cambridge University Press, 2010); and&nbsp;Conversable Worlds: Literature, Contention and Community&nbsp;(Oxford University Press, 2011). He also co-wrote the Palgrave guide to criticism of Blake&rsquo;s&nbsp;Songs of Innocence and of Experience&nbsp;with Sarah Haggarty (2013) and has co-edited various essay collections. Jon Mee is currently writing on the meaning of the industrial revolution for literary history.&nbsp;<br /><br /> No registration is required. <p>&nbsp;</p> </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2808-o_manchester_so_much_to_answer_for__fates_of_the_literary_in_an_industrial_revolution_17801830.html 2017/03/15 Stargardt Berlin - Autograph Auction <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2725/100/100/image.jpg" alt="Stargardt Berlin - Autograph Auction" align="left" /> <strong>Stargardt autograph and manuscript traders and auctioneers<br /> </strong> <p>The antiquarian department is devoted entirely to the fascinating field of autographs: to letters and manuscripts written by important persons in all fields of cultural history.&nbsp;<br />Since the 1950s, Stargardt has been holding two-day autograph auctions on a regular basis.

From 1946 to 1950 auctions were held under the company name "Ringbuchhandlung August Nethe Co." on the Hohenzollernring in downtown Cologne, in 1951 the name was changed to "Nethe and Venator". Rolf Venator has been part of this success story from the very beginning and has lead the company under the name "Venator KG" since 1953. The antiquarian book auction house had its first seat in the Breite Strasse and from there moved to St. Apern Strasse. In 1984 Prof. Henrik R. Hanstein joined the company as a partner and the offices were moved to the Kunsthaus Lempertz building. Since 1988 the company has been managed by the partner Karl-Heinz Knupfer.</p> </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2752-venator__hanstein_-_70_years_of_books_and_print_auctions_-_spring_sales.html 2017/03/23 A.L.A.I.

However, I can't live without Vienna, or without books."</em> Juri Andruchowytsch</p> <p>From 8th - 12th November 2017 the Austrian capital Vienna will once again welcome book lovers and bibliophiles. With over 300 lectures, discussions, performances &ndash; and an International Book Fair &ndash; &ldquo;Buch Wien&rdquo; will be the greatest Austrian book festival and one of the most important bookish events in Europe. Following on last year's success, antiquarian booksellers will be a prominent part of it. <br /><br />Every year, antiquarian booksellers take part in BUCH WIEN with a collective stand, showing rare and fine books from all centuries. All booksellers are members of the Austrian Antiquarian Booksellers&rsquo; Association (VAO) and affiliates to the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB). Guided tours will show book fair visitors the most beautiful books and manuscripts on display, while bookbinders and book artists demonstrate bookbinding and restauration techniques. At the collective stand of the antiquarian booksellers, visitors can bring their "treasures" and ask for an appraisal to understand and learn about the value of the books. &nbsp;<br />Michael Steinbach, President of the Austrian Booksellers Association: "The experience of holding an old, rare book in your hands cannot be replaced by anything."<br /><br />If you wish to receive more information about the fair or would like to exhibit, please contact Michael Steinbach by <a href="mailto:michael.steinbach@antiquariat-steinbach.com" target="_blank">Email</a>.&nbsp;<br /><br /><a href="https://www.ilab.org/catalog_view/3000/3000_BW16_online.pdf" target="_blank"><br /></a></p> <h4 class="texte_rouge">Antiquarian booksellers at Buch Wien 2016:</h4> <p><br />Burgverlag, Robert Schoisengeier&nbsp;<br />Domenico Jacono&nbsp;&ndash; Antiquariat/Verlag/Galerie&nbsp;<br />Druckwerk&nbsp;&ndash; Antiquariat Walter S.
