Foxcroft Lecture

This annual lecture honours the pioneering work of librarian Albert Broadbent Foxcroft in the field of bibliography.

A recognised authority on incunabula and early printing, Albert was influential in developing the Library's rare books and medieval manuscripts collection in the 1920s and 1930s. Albert produced several important indexes and other publications, including Catalogue of English books and fragments from 1477 to 1535 in the Public Library of Victoria and Catalogue of fifteenth-century books and fragments in the Public Library of Victoria.

You can watch and listen to a selection of Foxcroft lectures below.
