We have been very busy for the last month or so preparing for the exhibition – Merchants of Print: From Venice to Manchester, which will be on at the John Rylands Library from 29th January to 21st June. Now that most of the text for panels, labels and booklet is drafted we can get back to the blog. In the lead up to the exhibition we hope to share with you details on the books that will be on display, and some that didn’t make it in. Plus other posts following our preparation for the exhibition.

In addition we can also celebrate a significant milestone as cataloguing of all our Aldine editions is now complete! There is still some work to do on related editions, especially our large collection of counterfeits, but it is a great relief to have this work completed in time for the exhibition.

You can find more information and opening times on the Library website
