The course seeks to foster a sense of connoisseurship in the Book Arts
in the broadest sense, namely: the medieval manuscript, Incunabula and
other early printed books, Gothic and Renaissance bookbindings, emblem
books of the 17th-century, Calligraphic writing books, the French
Illustrated book (18th- and 19th-century), the English Private Press
movement, Modern Illustrated books, Victorian and modern bookbindings,
and Artist Books. Careful examination of the above materials is a
major component of the course. Relationships between the antiquarian
book trade, private collectors, and institutional libraries will also
be explored. Please note: Class meets in the Harry Ransom Center (2nd
Floor, Denius Room, HRC 2.200).
