All the ABA seminars will be aimed at a broad audience including collectors, dealers, historians of all kinds, librarians, indeed at anyone with an interest in collecting any sort of text from the sixth former to the retired professor. The atmosphere will be informal, as will the presentations.

The May seminar in the new book-collecting series organised jointly by the Institute of English Studies (London University) and the ABA Educational Trust will be given by Edward Bayntun-Coward, one of the rare book trade's most eloquent spokesmen, who owns and runs the George Bayntun bookshop in Bath, one of the world’s most famous bookshops and home to the Bayntun-Riviere bindery, which dates back to 1829.
