A presentation by Claire Bolton: Printing in Abingdon from 1476 to 1901

Thursday, 17 October 2019 - 7:45pm

This presentation, by Claire Bolton and is part of the Abingdon Area Archaeological and Historical Society lecture series. Generally people don’t see print or think about printers. This talk aims to correct this and will look at Abingdon’s connection with print from the 15th to the end of the 19th century. The town had impressive early connections, but that was short lived, and there was a gap of almost 250 years before anyone printed again in Abingdon.  The talk is illustrated with many images of printed works from 18th and 19th centuries, and some attempts to locate their printshops.

Admission for members is free. £3 for non members, or you can join. Further details are on our web site.
