The Body in the Library: Lord Lansdowne and his Nursery for Reform

David Hancock

David Hancock, U-M professor of history, talks about the important private collection of books and manuscripts assembled by William Petty-Fitzmaurice, 2nd Earl of Shelburne and 1st Marquis of Lansdowne (1737-1805), Britain’s first Irish-born prime minister, and housed at his palace in London. He examines the design, decoration and furnishing of a space to house them in, their acquisition, use and disposition between 1761 and 1805, and the tastes and thoughts they reflected.
