Sir Walter’s Scott’s library at Abbotsford was famously home to a literary treasure-trove, a cabinet of curiosities, but what is less well known is the extent to which it contains a fascinating history in miniature of children’s literature. This illustrated talk will delve into the archives to uncover some hidden gems and rarities from the histories of Scottish, British, and European children’s literature. Scott’s lovingly assembled library contains a wealth of chapbooks, pamphlets, fiction, and poetry which speaks to the transformations in children’s literature across two centuries, and brings new perspectives to Scott’s roles as antiquarian, collector, and imaginative writer.
All attendees will be sent joining instructions in advance of the event. Please check your junk/spam folder if you don't hear from us by an hour before.
The lecture will be on Microsoft Teams, so if you join us on a mobile device (mobile phone or tablet) you will need to download the app beforehand.
Free, but booking is essential.
