July 1, 2019: -

Tim Connell's blurb for this event included the following:

"By Special Arrangement with
The Guildhall Library

Sir Thomas Gresham – Tudor, Trader, Shipper, Spy

An Exhibition about the life and work of Sir Thomas Gresham
(to celebrate the quincentenary of his birth)

Thomas Gresham.jpg

There will be a reception for Gresham Society members
for a special viewing on Monday 1st July 2019
Drinks and canapés will be served and the event will run from 6 to 8pm.

I am pleased to say that on Monday July 1st Dr John Guy has agreed to talk a bit about the research that has gone into his biography of Sir Thomas Gresham and he will then circulate and discuss his findings informally with people - so this is not a lecture as such. Copies of the book will also be on sale."

The book is still available from many vendors, including Amazon (click here), from whom we borrowed the cover image.
