History of the Renaissance Book, August 3–7, California Rare Book School at UCLA

Tuesday, March 3, 2020  
Share |

This course will serve as a comprehensive introduction to the history of the book in early modern Europe, from the beginning of the fifteenth century to the middle of the seventeenth. Our goal will be to use the holdings of the UCLA Research Library, with a focus on its Aldine collection, the Getty Research Institute Research Library, and the Huntington Library to learn to 'read' a Renaissance book, both as a physical object and as a carrier of cultural values. We will examine in turn how these books were produced, how they were distributed, and how they were used by those who bought and read them.

The course is intended for special collections librarians, collectors, booksellers, and scholars and graduate students in any field of Renaissance studies and library science. Instructors are Craig Kallendorf (Texas A&M University) and Daniel Slive (Bridwell Library, Southern Methodist University).
