Herbert Somerton Foxwell and the Goldsmiths’ Company's Library of Economic Literature
As an academic writer, Herbert Somerton Foxwell, of Cambridge and London, would never have survived a Research Excellence exercise. As a compulsive collector of old economics books at a time when they were going cheap, he was incomparable. This seminar looks at the library he amassed, sold to the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, and continued to develop for another decade after it entered the University of London’s Senate House Library.
Dr. Karen Attar is the Rare Books Librarian at Senate House Library and a Research Fellow of the Institute of English Studies, both of the University of London. She has published widely on library history and aspects of special collections, is the reviews editor for Library & Information History, and in 2012 edited the treasures volume Senate House Library, University of London.
