Luke’s article on #WEBDuBois in the new edition of #BookHistory
One of my favorite images of the printing house! Johann Ernesti, 1733, from the #printinghistory collections at #CushingMemorialLibrary. #printshop #bookhistory #commonpress
Paste paper endleaves which I thought were quite pretty.

Marginal figure with a tiny trumpet, from a manuscript (1743) with birthday verses, a gift from a young Dutch man to his fiancé. Drawings possibly by Cornelis Markée.

Spotted an 18th century lady printer/bookseller while cataloging today! You rock, Mrs. Mundell 🙌🏻🙌🏻
She printed an sold An Enquiry into the Nature of Corn-Laws, with a View to the New Corn-Bill Proposed by Scotland (among other things, probably) in 1777. [HF 2044.A5]

I mostly do small repair on books only to make them useful again. I try to keep as much as possible of the original material and only secure loose parts. I like the history you can feel in a well read book with scratches and misscolorations. In this case the customer wanted me to reduce the traces of bookworms and I did an exception.

🚪Day #16 of our #AdventArchives calendar and it’s about time we celebrated another printed book! 📆
And not just any printed book, but a #volvelle! This is @uofglasgowasc Euing BD7-f.13, Johannes Regiomontanus’ Calendar (Venice: 1482), one of Glasgow’s beautiful incunables; it might seem at first glance like these are just circular discs on a page, but they should really be thought of as moving scientific instruments which can be manipulated to show the motion of the moon: it’s text technology in action! Scroll through the images and you'll find not only were these paper discs originally designed to be working instruments when they were first produced, but that this piece of #texttechnology still works 500 years later! As I said when I first posted this item way back at the start of this account, this wonderful work really communicates how a book is never just a static text but a machine for imparting knowledge, an object that begs interaction, and a work of art - all rolled into one! If you'd like to read and see more from this wee gem, see this page from Special Collections: http://special.lib.gla.ac.uk/exhibns/month/aug1999.html  #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

🚪Day #15 of the #ArchivesAdvent manuscript calendar brings with it some gold leaf, a beautiful miniature, a floriated border and ... a wee marginal face! 📆 I can’t keep away from Books of Hours. I just think they’re utterly beautiful, even if they were “mass produced” in manuscript workshops as with this manuscript, aka @uofglasgowasc MS Euing 4 (c. 1450-60). This full page miniature shows King David and introduces the Penitential Psalms. As details from Spec Colls explain, the Penitential Psalms were “recited to help resist the temptation to commit any one of the seven deadly sins. The psalms were supposedly composed by David as a penance for his sins. This stock illustration depicts the elderly king as a sinner seeking forgiveness on his knees in prayer, his harp laid by side.” Full page miniatures like this example weren’t just aesthetically pleasing additions - they also work like bookmarks, flagging major sections of the work to the reader, and providing themes for meditation. And, of course, delighting the eye along the way! #BooksofHours #KingDavid #marginalia  #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

🚪Day #14 of the #archivesadvent manuscript calendar brings with it an C12th glittering treat! 📆 This is the opening of the Gospel of St John (ff. 274v-275r) from @uofglasgowasc MS Hunter 479 (V.7.2), a beautifully illuminated Byzantine copy of the Greek Gospels. Glittering with gold, St John is shown holding a scroll in his left hand, dictating his Gospel to his disciple Prochoros. Details from Spec Colls explain that “John is making the Orthodox sign of the Cross over his head; rays symbolic of inspiration proceed from his forefinger. The hand of God extends from a segment of heaven at the top right and instructs the evangelist.” On the opposite folio (swipe through for details!) the Gospel text begins with an enlarged 'E' under a title and header, decorated in gold and a red-purple pigment. If you look closely at the top margin above John’s head you can see that some of the gold from the Gospel header has rubbed off/imprinted on to the opposite folio - perhaps a result of the Byzantine practice of highly polishing the parchment surface to give a smooth and glossy finish, which ultimately makes it harder for gold and pigment to adhere over time. Still stunning though, isn’t it? ✨ See more here: http://special.lib.gla.ac.uk/exhibns/month/apr2006.html #gold #glitter #illumination #goldleaf #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

"Gloria in excelsis Deo..." Bolognese illuminator Giovanni di Antonio depicted a choir of Franciscans singing this Christmas chant. If you look closely, you can see the compass holes used to trace the circumference of the friars' heads. These and other workshop practices remain central to my work post-dissertation.

🚪Day #12 of the #ArchivesAdvent manuscript calendar! 📆 Watch to reveal what’s behind today’s door... Today’s treasure comes in the form of some additional shots from @uofglasgowasc MS Euing 26, our Victorian miniature-hunter’s manuscript scrapbook! These are a mix of macro shots and full page pics for you to feast your eyes on, to helps focus detail on these excised letters and decorations. Yes, these beautiful fragments were all cut out of a medieval manuscript by a Victorian owner and pasted here for her own pleasure (see my previous post for further details!). The shots I’ve chosen help show how carefully (if brutally!) they were excised, and they also show some detail of the gold tooling we’ve talked about in previous calendar posts. I’ve also included a blank page because - of course - with every excised and glued fragment, one whole side of the fragmented folio is obscured by being glued to the page. So by squinting through the reverse of pages like these, we get a glimpse of what text would have originally been found on the other side of the folio to the excised letter. ✂️✂️✂️😭😱📖 #miniaturehunter #manuscriptscrapbook  #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

So by squinting through the reverse of pages like these, we get a glimpse of what text would have originally been found on the other side of the folio to the excised letter. ✂️✂️✂️😭😱📖 #miniaturehunter  #manuscriptscrapbook  #uofglasgow  #uofglibrary  #iglibraries  #specialcollections  #specialcollectionsofinstagram  #archives  #archivesofinstagram  #libraries  #librariesofinstagram  #bookstagram  #manuscriptsofinstagram  #rarebooksofinstagram  #manuscripts  #books  #bookhistory  #bookart  #medieval  #medievalmanuscripts  #rarebooks  #explorearchives  #archivesunlocked

🚪Door #11 of our #archivesadvent manuscript calendar! 📆  And I thought you’d waited long enough to see this one - this is the upper historiated initial from @uofglasgowasc MS Hunter 231 (U.3.4) f.89r, with detail of Mary as a nursing mother (one of two in the MS; I’ll save the other for another door!). 🤱 This historiated initial C relates to the poem it accompanies, which meditates on the life and passion of Christ. The historiated C depicts Christ’s life: his infancy is depicted by Mary nursing, his public ministry is depicted in the centre, and his death on the crucifix depicted on the right. And for all who asked last time, those tiny clusters of dots in the gold leaf are a form of tooling, used by the illuminator to help catch the light! ✨ #LifeofChrist #NursingMary  #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

🚪Door #10 of our #archivesadvent calendar! 📆 Today’s treasure is one I’ve shown you before (though a while ago) but I was just so pleased with how these macro photos of printer’s waste came out, and it’s such a beautiful item, I can’t help but share them again! This is @uofglasgowasc MS Hamilton BC2-f.6, an incunable which has been wrapped in another incunable (i.e. a very early printed book). The cover consists of a folded incunable leaf - identified, according to the catalogue, by John Lancaster, Emeritus Curator of Special Collections, Amherst College Library, as leaf [447v] extracted from Rainerius de Pisis, Pantheologia (Nuremberg: Anton Koberger, 1477). What’s even more fascinating is that the front flyleaf is also taken from a recycled incunable, which has also been identified as being from the same source as the cover! Some serious early printed ♻️ recycling ♻️ at work here, making this one of the many gems in @uofglibrary’s world class incunable collections. https://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/incunabula/a-zofauthorsa-j/bedapseudo-repertoriumauctoritatumaristotelisetaliorumphilosophorumnurembergca1491/ #incunable #printerswaste #earlyprintedbooks #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

🚪Time to open door #8 of our #ArchivesAdvent manuscript calendar! 📆 And it’s a #hairyarchives treat awaiting you behind this door! These are some macro shots taken of @uofglasgowasc MS Hunter 96 (T.4.13) which we’ve met bits of before; it’s a manuscript of medical works produced in either southern France or Northern Italy. It’s now the earliest Western manuscript in Scotland, dating from C8th-9th. As with so many of my posts, it’s the codex itself that fascinated me - you cannot miss the fact this is made from animal skin, and these shots are a great example! What you’re seeing are the pores and remaining hairs on the parchment which weren’t fully removed during production. I often wish Instagram had a way for me to let you feel these manuscripts, but I think you get a real sense of texture from these images! #hairymanuscript #hairyparchment #hairybooks  #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

🚪It’s door #9 of our #archivesadvent manuscript calendar already! 📆 And today there’s not one but TWO full page miniatures to be found behind the door PLUS a wee manuscript video; these folios are f.48v-49r and f.58v-59r of @uofglasgowasc MS Euing 3, a C15th Book of Hours. Today’s images are found at the beginning of the manuscript’s illustrative cycle with the Annunciation and Visitation, which - as details from Spec Colls explain - were “placed respectively at the Hours of Lauds and Matins; these Hours were to be prayed together, either during the night or upon rising”. The first image shows the Annunciation where we can see the angel Gabriel and Mary, who is kneeling in prayer. What I love about this image is that Mary has a prayer book open before her (perhaps her own Book of Hours?). The scroll rising from Gabriel’s hand can be thought of as a medieval speech bubble; it says 'Ave Maria gratia plena Dominus tecum' (Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with you), the beginning of the Hail Mary which would have been recited before these Hours. The second image shows the Visitation where Mary relays her news to her cousin Elizabeth. Elizabeth is shown touching Mary's stomach, underlining her response 'blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus'.

This copy of Olaus Magnus' Historia de Gentibus Septentrionalibus (History of the Northern People) is a recent acquisition from an auction in Haarlem. First printed in Rome in 1555, this Antwerp edition was printed by Joannes Bellerus between 1562 and 1595. It is bound in contemporary limp vellum and contains dozens of lovely woodcuts.

The text deals with aspects of Scandinvian customs, folklore and natural history. Accounts on dark winters, strange habits and monstruous creatures that were supposedly found in the north stunned commentators across Europe. The work was translated into Italian, German, Dutch and English and remained the principal text on Scandinavian matters for a century to come. Today it is still an indispensible source on Nordic history, thanks to its detailed portrayal of people, customs, folklore and natural history.

We love this action shot of @uealdc's Dr Rebecca Pinner guiding visitors through seventeenth-century Norfolk and Norwich: a definite highlight of our @beinghumanfest event @norfolk_heritage_centre! John Speed's cartographical work of history, 'Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain' was a huge inspiration for our #newimpressions2017 designers, leading to innovative works by @louiserichardson4 & Andy Campbell (@norwich_school), @nicerthannice_studios, and @jb.studio. A fitting tribute to the book which the public voted Norwich's Favourite Renaissance Book at our inaugural series of Unlocking the Archive events in 2015 (if you were one of those voters, don't forget you can buy a beautiful print of Speed's map of Norwich both from @jarroldsnorwich itself and the Jarrolds shop @theforumnorwich!).

I'm amazed at the level of detail in the illustrations contained in John Speed's "The Genealogies Recorded in the Sacred Scriptures," which is bound with a 1632 edition of the bible printed at London by Robert Barker. This is the first illustration which depicts Adam and Eve, and begins a genealogical tree spanning multiple pages "observed from Adam to the blessed Virgin Mary," and ultimately Christ. While religious imagery declined in the century after the English Reformation, the tree diagram flourished as an important guide to the bible and its content. The genealogies underlined key theological concepts such as the humanity of Christ and the inheritability of original sin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀Br UF 264.03 C 563 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Brechincollection #dundeeuni #dundee #theology #bookhistory #librariesofinstagram #rarebooks #bookstagram #canon600D #libros #oldbooks #anglican #bible #bibliophile #instabooks #instagood #book #libro #bookphotography #canon ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
