Annual Lecture in History of the Book
Randall McLeod is Professor Emeritus of English at University of Toronto. He is known widely for inventing the McLeod Portable Collator, a stereoscopic device for comparing texts as images. Professor McLeod will give the fifth annual lecture in history of the book. His talk will be about the work of Venetian Aldo Manuzio (1449-1515), a printer of many first Greek editions and the first to print in italics. He will also give a graduate workshop.
His visit is co-sponsored by LiteracyStudies@OSU, the Department of History, the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, and University Libraries.
