Was the house torched by a madwoman🔥-- or was it all those birthday candles? 🎂  Happy birthday to Jane Eyre, published exactly 170 years ago today. 
I wonder if Charlotte Brontë had any inkling that a novel published pseudonymously by a poor, obscure, plain, and little female author would become a classic, beloved by generations and ranked as one of the greatest novels of all time. Our new Thornfield collection pays homage to all things Jane Eyre. Click on the link in bio to learn more! (Illustration by Edward A. Wilson for a 1944 version of the book published by Illustrated Modern Library.)

Ancient seal from Syria.

It is interesting that seal were in a way printing machines but this technology was not used for longer texts in ancient days.

Harold Robbins died 20 years ago in October 14, 1997. 'The Godfather of the airport novel', although little remembered now, he had a revolutionary impact on book publishing. #book #books #bookish #pulpbooks #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookhistory #airportnovels #bookslut
Sewing Sunday is what I’d call it.... •
Sometimes you read history, and sometimes you read about your own history... I was so blessed to grow up with a mother who taught me our ancient religion, allowed me the freedom to find my own path within our religion. October is very important to us, so im gonna remember those who came before me... •📖☕️🤓

It's #factotumfriday ! A factotum is a woodcut ornament with a square left in the middle in which a piece of type (a "sort") can be inserted. This allows the factotum to be used as an ornament for any initial letter. Of course, that means one must remember to put the sort into the factotum before printing... 😬

Brace yourself for a few more days of snaps from @uofglasgowasc MS Euing 26: this C19th scrapbook of (in part) a C14th manuscript was *made* for Instagram and Boomerang videos! Just look at the gold leaf shimmer! ✨Even though I shudder at the thought of anyone going anyone near a medieval manuscript with a pair of scissors or a penknife, I do have to marvel at some the craftsmanship of our scrapbook creator, Esther Cory - some of the letters to the top of this folio have been very carefully excised! And it's no wonder she was so drawn to them - even outwith their original context, their intricate beauty is still quite something. Brings a whole new meaning to the idea of the "textual afterlives" of manuscripts! @uofglibrary #fragments #illumination #illuminatedmanuscript #miniaturehunters #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

When you're trying to rubricate nicely but you mess up and run out of room so you use all the abbreviations and *still* have to squeeze the word in 😒 I've always been under the impression that Martin Luther's translation in 1534 was the first translation of the Bible into German. In fact, the first Bible translated into German, or any modern language, for that matter, was printed in 1466 by Johannes Mentelin (the beginning of the 3rd book of Kings is pictured here). It is thought that the translator was Andreas or Stephan Rudiger, who was a professor of theology and rector at the University of Leipzig. #iulillylibrary #bible #earlyprinting #rarebooks #rubrication #bookhistory

✂️📖✂️📖✂️ Snip, snip! It's a manuscript scrapbook! 😱📖😱📖😱 How about this for a #tinytuesday, some #bookguts, AND a bit of a #pagefright all rolled into one?! This is @uofglasgowasc MS Euing 26, a volume of excised illuminations on vellum. Yes, that's right: someone's got a little snip-happy with some medieval manuscripts and created their own scrapbook of their favourite letters and ornaments. They even took the time to excise, save and arrange the letters for the title page, "Letters / Ornaments", and the final pages, "from a MS of the IV century" and "finis anno domini MDCCC XXVIII". At least this gives us an idea of a date of creation (1800 28 = 1828?). We also know the name of the creator as a slip added to the front of the volume tells us it was made by an Esther Cory from an imperfect C14th missal. What do you think: cultural vandalism or a fantastic bit of book history in its own right?? 📖🤔✂️ #fragments #illumination #illuminatedmanuscript #miniaturehunters  #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

Diandra and I saw Le Jeune Karl Marx last night, which all things considered focused on collaboration, writing, and the creative process. I was taken with the paperbacks and pamphlets in the film, examples of low-cost German and English printing of the mid and late 1840s. They closely resemble today's galleys or type-only ARCs, and presented an affordable—and fast—alternative for writers, readers, and publishers, well before Allen Lane's inexpensive paperbacks for commuters. Necessary when Marx needed to make a speedy retort. #bookhistory #printculture #lejeunekarlmarx #marx #publishing #paperback

The student who annotated this 1565 Bible printed by Henri Estienne couldn't choose between the use of a manicule or the use of a trident dickitule to mark some specific passages in the text. Scroll to see more of the student's talent for marginal penis drawing.

Чем отличается студент образца 16 века от современного?) судя по маргиналиям в тексте, ничем)))) regram @suivez_le_fil The student who annotated this 1565 Bible printed by Henri Estienne couldn't choose between the use of a manicule or the use of a trident dickitule to mark some specific passages in the text.

Happy #manuscriptmonday everyone! Here's a wee gem from @uofglasgowasc to bring a little sparkle to your day, aka MS Euing 4, a Book of Hours dating from c.1460 from France. Many of us who use Word or Pages on a regular basis may be faced with an age-old decision: to justify or not to justify our text block? 🤔 I'll admit, I'm a fan of the neat, justified edge, especially when I see a manuscript like this - because this is exactly what these decorations are for: to justify the text block! The infilled rectangles you can see to the right of these lines, decorated in red, blue, and white, and touched with gold, are line fillers - a tactic used to visually justify the text on a page and avoid a ragged edge. These pages are from the Litany of the Saints, hence the need for line fillers. Just goes to show - you don't need a complex illuminated border to make a visual impact on a page! #illumination #linefillers #illuminatedmanuscript #bookofhours #litanyofthesaints #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

I love when I open up a book and find this kind of material history in its binding! This volume was originally printed and bound in 1905.

Now that is a beautiful typeface. The oldest printed book in the Royal Astronomical Society's library, a 1472 edition of Isidore of Seville's Prologus in librium De responsione mundi. The red highlights have been added to the text by hand, a holdover from the manuscript era.

We’re bringing chess to the #ArchivesGameNight with @usnatarchives! In 1474, William Caxton’s “The Play of Chess” became the second book ever printed in English, but Caxton printed it in Bruges! After he returned to England, he printed a new edition in Westminster in 1482, and this time he included woodblock illustrations. Check out our story for more details from the books. #archiveshashtagparty #caxton #woodblock #rarebooks #bookhistory #chess [Image 1: 1474 edition, Inc. 9323; Image 2: 1482 edition, Inc. 9643]

There's no better way to put things back into their proper perspective at the end of the week than to spend time with a 543-year-old book, bound in its original boards, covered in worn leather stamped with the faded blooms of a 15th-century bookbinder's toolkit, reinforced by  still-shining metal bosses... The heft and creak of this binding, the aroma of coarse thread, the grainy texture wood and leather:  a reminder of the power of the codex, through which ideas outlive the fragile frames of those who dream them. Breathtaking ☺

@library_vic RARESEF 093 C743H, Astesanus de Ast, 'De casibus conscientiae', printed and bound in Strassbourg in 1474.

I love these little printers on this bookplate! They're working a common press, which was the type of press used from the mid-15th century until printing became mechanized in the 1800s. Typically, 2 men would be working the press; the beater using ink balls to ink the forme, and the puller handling the setting of the paper on the tympan and pulling the arm of the press. Sometimes young boys, called "devils" or "flies," were also employed to help remove printed pages from the press to speed up the process. #iulillylibrary #bookplate #bookhistory #earlyprinting #handpress #commonpress #thingsinbooks #librariesofinstagram [Found in The Hind and the Panther, PR 3418 H5]

Vernissage for the new exhibition by 2016 Larose-Osler-Artist-in-Residence Dr. Lucy Lyons, Impossible Pathologies: Re-fragmenting the Archive. | Thursday, October 12, 2017, 17:30-19:00 at the Osler Library. | RSVP osler.library@mcgill.ca | During the 2016-2017 academic year, Dr. Lucy Lyons spent time in the Osler Library archives studying the illustrations made by the English physician and medical writer, Robert Hooper. Inspired by Hooper’s method of cutting out parts of his drawings like the analogue version of Photoshop, Lyons created her own fantastic collaged composites. This composite method was then transferred into studies of the collections in the Maude Abbott Medical Museum to create new, impossible pathologies. This exhibition is an exploration of the beauty of the fragment which is synonymous with pathology. If pathology is the fractured, broken, diseased, deformed fragment of the human body, this work explores the further fracturing, breaking and then re-assembling of parts. | Dr. Lucy Lyons received her PhD from Sheffield Hallam University. Her practice focuses on drawing within medical museums and working collaboratively to explore the beauty of collections. She is especially interested in the hidden, the overlooked, insignificant or in-between. This residency will allow her to push and explore her own practice and develop work in new ways whilst bringing new audiences to the collections. | The Michele Larose – Osler Library Artist-in-Residence award, is given annually to one or more deserving candidates with a degree in Studio Arts or a related field and/or a history of exhibiting artistic work in professional venues. | For more information, please visit our blog: http://blogs.library.mcgill.ca/osler-library/ | #oslerlibrary #mcgill #rarebooks #library #exhibit #exhibition #conference #librariesofinstagram #archivesofinstagram #iglibraries #bookhistory #printculture #histmed #historyofmedicine @lucy.lyons #laroseoslerlibrary #pathology #pen #drawing #impossiblepathologies

Today is the feast day of St Francis of Assisi, the man who founded the order that's been the focus of my research for the last decade and a bit. One of the things that intrigues me most about the medieval Franciscans is the difficulty they had in pinning down and emulating the spirituality of their founder, who must rank as one of the most challenging, enigmatic and charismatic figures in history. Francis followed his own path, and the road isn't easy for those who choose to follow him. Part of the joy of this research has been forging friendships with modern Franciscans - its privilege to study their books, which are such vital transmitters of their  cultural heritage. 📖
This is a decorated intial of St Francis from a breviary I studied in Assisi, in the library of the Sacro Convento (ms. 265, dated by its scribe to 1322). The poor condition of the image is from repeated touching, likely kissing - compare to the rather crisper image of the actual (rather than 'alter') Christ that follows...! This damage - and the fact that this book survives at all - allows us to read the  strength of emotion St Francis has inspired over the last 800 years ☺

Ok, ok, I *know* it's autumn, the leaves are turning and the nights are fair drawing in, but I couldn't wait until spring to post these pics - they're so bright, and colourful, and full of life! This is @uofglasgow MS Hunter 25 (S.2.15), a Breviary completed in Flanders in 1494. A breviary (Latin: brevarium) is a service book containing the texts necessary for the celebration of the divine office, often adorned with decorated and historiated initials and miniatures. According to details provided by Spec Colls, this copy with its illuminated borders of trompe-l'oeil decoration and beautiful miniatures was illuminated by an artist known as the Master of the First Prayer Book of Maximilian (for further details, see Flickr here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/uofglibrary/3551026771 and the catalogue here: http://special.lib.gla.ac.uk/manuscripts/search/detail_c.cfm?ID=34307). The miniatures depict a) St Peter and the Apostles (f.196r) and b) David (f.143r). I just love the vibrancy of those borders, though - they've cheered up a dreich October day! 🌸🌺🌼🦋 #illuminatedmanuscript #illuminatedborder #breviary #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

Richard got this pattern book from a man who's father had a small textile business in Leicester. At the end of World War Two his father bought some army surplus silk parachutes & using this book, turned them into women's underwear. Long queues of women were said to gather outside his factory, as he sold them them direct to the public.
