The Anthony Davis Book Collecting Prize

Thursday 1 February 2018

About the Prize

Senate House Library and the Institute of English Studies are offering, for the fifth time, a prize to a student of the University of London (including the School of Advanced Study and any of the Colleges of the University) for a coherent collection of printed and/or manuscript materials.

The winner will receive £500, an allowance of £250 to purchase a book for Senate House Library’s special collections in collaboration with library staff, and the opportunity to give a seminar on their winning collection within an Institute of English Studies seminar series.

The prize is generously funded by Mr. Anthony Davis, a graduate of the University.

It is possible to enter the prize more than once. The standard has been very high and failure one year does not mean failure the next.

The closing date for 2018 entries is 28 February 2018.
