FABS Handpress Era Zoom: First Edition Hoyle on Whist and 18th Century Open Mic

July 8 @ 7:30 pm EDT

Sponsored by FABS

July 8: Handpress Era (second Monday of the month). This month we will hear from David Levy about a trip to Aberdeen to visit one of four known copies of the first edition of A Short Treatise on the Game of Whist (1742), bound with other works by Hoyle on backgammon and piquet. In a talk illustrated with examples from his collection and from his research, David demonstrates how the book, initially mysterious, came to reveal its story. After Q&A, we’ll have open mic for the 18th century! Please share your printed item from 1700-1799. No powerpoint needed.
