Eighteenth-century Jewish books from Central Europe mark a transition from a primary interest for the content of books, to an increasing interest in the appearance of books. This will be the central premise of Emile Schrijver’s inaugural lecture as professor by special appointment of Jewish Book History.
E.G.L. Schrijver, professor by special appointment of Jewish Book History: The eye of the beholder. Kunstzin en vakmanschap in achttiende-eeuwse joodse boeken.
This event is open to the public.
(Please note: this inaugural lecture will be held in Dutch.)
