Congratulations to Geoff Kemp and Jason McElligott whose Censorship and the Press, 1580-1720, a four volume sourcebook of over 300 original documents, was the subject of an extended review in a recent issue of Proceedings of the Bibliographical Society of America: the sourcebook was described as ’a magnificent work of scholarship that should remain influential for many years’.

The sourcebook was used as the basis for a recent lecture course offered by the Keeper of Marsh’s Library, Jason McElligott, for Trinity College Dublin and given surrounded by the extensive early-modern collections of Marsh’s Library. Future lectures and seminars are envisaged at Marsh’s Library around the sourcebook.
