Taking courses for credit

We offer postgraduate credit or summer LRBS courses at the Institute of English Studies, which is part of the School of Advanced Study, University of London.


The London Rare Books School is grateful to receive donations in support of its continuing mission to promote the study of all areas of bibliography and the history of the book. In particular, we welcome support that enables the subject to be embraced by a wider constituency of students within and beyond the academy.
