Books as History: Changing Values in a Digital Age (David Pearson)

David Pearson, Director of Culture, Heritage and Libraries at the City of London Corporation and a leading scholar of book history delivered the 2015 Kiddell Lecture on March 30 that was a vivid tribute to the role of books in the digital age. Pearson’s particular interest in book provenance came to light in a revealing discussion of the value of books and libraries in the 21st century.
