Mark Samuels Lasner, collector, bibliographer and typographer, is Senior Research Fellow at the University of Delaware Library. His many publications include The Bookplates of Aubrey Beardsley (2008) and England in the 1890s: Literary Publishing at the Bodley Head (1990). He has curated exhibitions at Harvard University, the Grolier Club, and the Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia. In 2003 he was awarded the Sir Thomas More medal from the University of San Francisco, for his achievement in making private book collecting a public benefit. In 2017 the University of Delaware Library celebrated his gift of over 9,500 works of Victorian literature and art with a symposium and exhibition, Victorian Passions: Stories from the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection. In this talk Mark will share his passion for collecting Victorian books and highlight some fascinating Surrey connections.
