Only a few days to go until the opening of Firsts – London’s Rare Book Fair. With more than 150 international exhibitors offering an array of rare books, maps, manuscripts, art and ephemera, there really should be something for everyone! I will be exhibiting at Stand D08 and very much look forward to welcoming you to the stand – please do come and say hello. I will have a varied selection of material – including a number of items relating to Women in Science and Medicine.
This year the fair will be opened by actor and book collector Stephen Fry, and visitors will have the chance to view a copy of Shakespeare’s First Folio along with other historic books and items from the Globe Theatre.
