About the event

The first Ukrainian book was printed in 1574, and by the end of the seventeenth century more than 750 books had been printed at over 40 presses on the territory of what is now Ukraine. The Bodleian possesses a number of these, some extremely rare; its holdings cover a wide variety of material, from a complete Bible to small books intended for teaching reading. This presentation reflects both on their significance as specimens of printing from Eastern Europe and as part of one of the oldest and most extensive English collections.

Organised in partnership with the Oxford University Ukrainian Society.


Professor Ralph Cleminson
