The Trade in Medieval Manuscripts in Early Twentieth Century and its impact on how we value Old Books
Dr Laura Cleaver
Department of History of Art & Architecture (TCD) ERC Consolidator Grant award recipient
In May 2019, Dr Cleaver will start a five-year research project, funded by the European Research Council, into the trade in medieval manuscripts in the period 1900-1945. This paper will explain how preliminary research into the collections of Alfred Chester Beatty and Charles Dyson Perrins has shaped the research questions to be addressed in the new project. In particular, it will explore how the increasingly wide-reaching trade in manuscripts in this period helped shape attitudes to manuscripts as object of art and items of national significance
