    The focus of these lectures and seminars is on bibliophilia and the book trade. Book-collectors, dealers and auctioneers are invited to give a lecture on a subject of their choosing which relates to the practice of bibliophilia. Lectures may be anecdotal, academic or purely for entertainment. With this in mind, the programme is jointly-coordinated and run by the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association Educational Trust.

    Byron and Wordsworth: Art and Nature

    Byron and Wordsworth: Art and Nature

    The 2017 London Lecture with Professor Sir Drummond Bone

    Wordsworth and Byron fell out in a not very dignified way over politics, and there was heavy co-lateral damage in their opinion of each other’s poetry. But there was a fundamental intellectual difference too. Despite his flirtation with Wordsworthean pantheism at Shelley’s behest in 1816, Byron came to believe that moral and existential value could only be human constructs, whereas Wordsworth of course saw these very constructs as the barrier to an existential value inherent in Nature, the perception of which was the necessary ground of moral behaviour. Professor Sir Drummond Bone will use this contrast as a way into reading their poetry, and spend some time specifically on their differing attitudes to city life and the nature of art.
