Title: Have book will travel : mapping provenance in Rare Books & Special Collections
Author: Larsen, Marie
Issue Date: 2018
Organisation: Friends of the University of Adelaide Library
University of Adelaide
Abstract: From America, England, Europe and even Antarctica, many of the books held in Special Collections have travelled far and wide to get here. This discussion, with the Library’s Marie Larsen, showcases just how far some of these books have come, based on the inscriptions and bookplates found inside their covers. Marie will present a selection of books broken down into geographical areas with details of their history and origin. Questions Marie will be asking will include: What is Provenance; Types of Provenance; and Mapping. Locations will include: South Australia; Australia; the United Kingdom; the United States of America and Canada; Africa and Europe; New Zealand and Antarctica. Finally, we will be looking at Provenance Stories and Provenance Lost. An exciting mapping and literary project not to be missed.
