Antwerp, Belgium, will be giving a talk on "Three Centuries of Printing:
The Plantin-Moretus Press of Antwerp" at the Providence (R.I.) Public

Museum.  The Museum houses a remarkable collection of early printing
presses, type, woodblocks, copperplates etc. as well as the archives of
the firm going back to the sixteenth century, a fine collection of prints,
drawings and paintings, and a great library.  The talk will be illustrated

It is free and open to the public.  There will be a small exhibition of
books and prints relating to the talk as well as a larger one of early and
modern fine bindings from the Special Collections Department.
