Lecture at the Aldus Society, Columbus, Ohio

Last week I had the honour of traveling to my old haunt of Columbus, Ohio to give a presentation called Freed From a Parchment Jail about the Revenant Archive for the bibliophiles of the Aldus Society at the Thurber Center. I spoke about the first-generation avant-garde in the 1830s, using books from the archive as the guiding thread. I also had the opportunity to meet some intriguing bibliophiles and scholars, explore the Special Collections Library at Ohio State University, and catch up with some old friends and collaborators (though not everybody I'd wish).

Here is the announcement for the talk:
