Different Objectives: Archival collections at the Royal Astronomical Society that led to printed works at the Linda Hall Library


Online talk presented June 5, 2020 by Linda Hall Library and the Royal Astronomical Society.

Join the Linda Hall Library and the Royal Astronomical Society for a series exploring connections between our respective collections. Hosted as a four part conversation between the Society’s Librarian, Sian Prosser, and the Library’s Vice President for Special Collections, Jason W. Dean, this series will introduce the two organisations to attendees, and highlight astronomical notable items in our collections.

In this session, Sian and Jason will talk about the relationships between manuscript observations and their eventual printed publications. Specifically, they will focus on the connections between the archival collections of the Herschel family at the Society and their printed works at the Library.
