Happy Birthday, Liverpool University Press!

Liverpool University Press is celebrating its 10th birthday since relaunch in April 2004 – and its 115th birthday too. To mark the occasion, Special Collections & Archives is showcasing each of the ‘Ten for £10’ landmark books published by LUP in the last decade, and pairing each one with a book published by the Press one hundred years previously, drawn from the complete collection of the Press’s output back to 1899.


So alongside the award-winning Liverpool 800 (2006) and Sophistication (2010) are displayed The Liverpool students’ song book (1906) and the inaugural lecture on Naval Architecture (1910). Each new pairing will be added to the display as the Ten for £10 list is revealed by LUP during April, and added to the blog with more about LUP: Then and Now.
