Paul Botley's Correspondence of Isaac Casaubon in England launched
Paul Botley and Máté Vince's four-volume The Correspondence of Isaac Casaubon in England, 1610-14 (Geneva, Droz, 2018) was launched on 5 March 2019, in the Wolfson Research Exchange. An exhibition of early printed books by or about Casaubon was on display in the University Library during February and March 2019, to complement the launch events. Three further events took place at Trinity College Dublin on 2 April 2019. The first was a discussion about editorial method; the second the launch proper, introduced by Dr Graeme Murdock (TCD, History) and presented by Paul and Máté. The third was a roundtable event on editorial practice, with an open audience, chaired by Prof. Jane Ohlmeyer (TCD, History). See Paul and Máté deep in conversation below. For more details of the launch event go here; and for the Casaubon Project website go here.
