MIND-BOGGLING ‘BODLEIANALIA - MAR 27 - 7.37PM
Bodleian Library, Claire Cock-Starkey
Imagine selling Shakespeare’s First Folio after receiving his Third because it was mistaken for a repeat of the First or telling the King of England he doesn’t have permission to remove a book from the library because “those are the rules”.
Claire Cock-Starkey, author of ‘Penguins, Pineapples and Pangolins’ (as recommended by TV’s QI don’t-you-know) has delved into the topsy-turvy history of the Bodleian library and brought forward some of its most intriguing tales in her newest book, ‘Bodleianalia’.
Quirky, fun and informative, you don’t need to be a history buff or book lover to appreciate the comings and goings of those eccentric characters who have graced the Bodleian’s hallowed halls.
