With the conference season in full swing, Historic Collections staff at Senate House Library have been busy preparing displays to support conferences. Recently ‘Hard Cash: Money, Property, Economics and the Marketplace in Victorian Popular Culture’ was in the spotlight. One of our aims was to demonstrate how books were used to generate money, not just through sales but for the various products advertised on endpapers, covers and so forth. As ever, we had more material than could fit into the available space. One of the items to be discarded was a part-publication, one of the parts of Anthony Trollope’s He Knew He Was Right, advertising sherry on its back wrapper.
