Event Details

Join us for another fascinating Heritage Talk, where Dr Angus Vine delves into the Clitherow family’s historic library.

Dr Angus Vine will tell the 300-year story of the library and archive at Boston Manor. Although the collection was dispersed when the house was sold in the 1920s, its contents can be reconstructed through account books, catalogues, book lists, and ledgers. Some of the books, moreover, can even
still be identified today thanks to their bindings and bookplates (and also the occasional inscription and signature).

Join us to learn more about the extraordinarily rich collection of books that the Clitherow family amassed at Boston Manor over a period of nearly three centuries.

Dr Angus Vine is an Associate Professor at the University of Stirling, a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
