The study of paper
Lydia Lantzsch, a PhD student at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, joined the first ever summer school course run by the Centre for the Study of the Book at the Bodleian Library. With the title, ‘Bibliography and the study of paper’, the course took place in July 2012. Ten participants from seven different countries spent five intensive days exploring the evidence that paper can provide and how that evidence can be used to date and investigate manuscripts and early printed books.
Lydia wrote a piece about the course for the Bodleian newsletter, Outline, and a PDF of her article is available.
