THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED

An unmissable opportunity to gaze in awe at literary rarities and first editions, including the oldest piece of the New Testament in existence, first folios of Shakespeare, Newton’s Principia Mathematica, a very early, banned Ulysses, and other priceless treasures from the rare collections of three great Manchester libraries: John Rylands, Central and Portico. Led by Ed Glinert (author of the Manchester Compendium, and editor of the Sherlock Holmes stories for Penguin Classics) at his antiquarian best.

Meet outside the John Rylands Library, off Deansgate. (Ends at the Portico Library – please note there is no wheelchair access at this venue)
