Renowned Book Expert Paul Ruxin Speaks @KSL on 11/16: 18th Cent. Association Copies
Owner of one of the most complete private collections of Samuel Johnson, James Boswell, and their contemporaries, Paul Ruxin appears at KSL on Thursday, November 16th. A 4:00 p.m. wine and cheese reception and a KSL Special Collections book display precedes Mr. Ruxin's 5:00 p.m. presentation on how "association copies" can give you a physical connection with the past.
Association copies are those items associated in some way with now-famous historical figures and their contemporaries. Copies owned by them offer insight into what they read & collected, thereby putting into our hands what was literally held in their hands. The items' ownership and/or notations offer a rich opportunity for those interested in literary and historical research.
Join us on Thursday, Nov. 16 (4:00 p.m.reception, 5:00 p.m. talk) in the 2nd floor Dampeer Room at KSL. Seating is limited to 60 on a first-come basis.
More details are available on our flyer--please print and use it as a reminder for you and your colleagues, this notable event!
Paul T. Ruxin is a partner at Jones Day (Chicago and Cleveland), and speaks widely on his collection and literary subjects. A member of the Rowfant Club of Cleveland, The Chicago Literary Club, The Caxon Club of Chicago, the Grolier Club of New York, he also serves on the Editorial Committee of the Yale Editions of the Private Papers of James Boswell and the Board of Governors of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C.
