Rare book aficionados, here’s an incomparable chance to get a closer look at some of the priceless literary treasures held in the collections of Manchester’s great libraries. Tour-goers will be able to admire the earliest editions of Ulysses, Mary Barton and Confessions of an English Opium Eater, take a gander at Henry VIII’s own signed copy of St. Prosper of Aquitaine and inspect an original Tyndale Bible. Author and Manchester city guide Ed Glinert will relate some bookish history between stops. Meet at the tiled wall map, Victoria Station.
