Book Club: this book belongs to...

From Lately, 10:45 pm on 25 February 2020

It's time for Lately Book Club where we go exploring in the world of literature and invite you to come along.  

A new exhibition has just opened in the special collections Library at the University of Otago showcasing bookplates, book labels and manuscript inscriptions. The exhibition is titled This Book Belongs to... and looks deeply at the history of how people make their mark on books and manuscripts. 

Otago University Special Collections Librarian Donald Kerr is in for book club to explain why the provenance of books can be utterly fascinating.
