JOSEPH GWARA: The Lost Books of Robert Copland.

Why did Robert Copland, Wynkyn de Worde's most famous apprentice, print so few books? On the basis of typographical and other evidence, Dr. Gwara attributes to Copland more than a dozen editions of the 1540s which not only explain Copland's mysteriously small output, but also cast new light on his print-shop practices.

Tea will be served at 5.00 p.m. Members are welcome to bring guests, both to lecture and to the tea beforehand.
