Robert Recorde Conference

Posted by Tenby Museum on Oct 31, 2012 News No Comments

The launch conference at the Tenby Museum and Art Gallery on 19 October was a magical event held at a delightful location under a clear blue sky! Our particular thanks are due to Sue Baldwin, who coordinated the event, to the trustees of the Museum for their support and enthusiasm, and to Robin Wilson for chairing the day in his capacity as President of BSHM.

The launch itself was trilingual: while English was the lingua franca, Welsh was also spoken and the presence of the multilingual Director of the University of Wales Press, Dr Helgard Krause, also enabled delegates to hear a conversation in German with Ulrich Reich, who joined the conference via Skype!

Dr Krause informed the conference that sales of the hard-copy version of the book are already going well and that the Press anticipates publishing a paperback version (at a lower price) in due course.
