Course on history of bookbinding

From: Sabina Pugh <sp>
Date: Thursday, July 20, 2000
A History of European Bookbinding 1500-1800
Institute of Paper Conservation Course
October 23-27, 2000
Tutor: Dr. Nicholas Pickwoad
St Aldates Parish Centre, 40 Pembroke Street, Oxford OX1 1BP

The course will follow European bookbinding from the end of the
Middle Ages to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, using the
bindings to illustrate the aims and intentions of the binding trade.
Most of the time will be spent on the following: the identification
of differences within plain commercial bindings; the possibilities
of identifying the work of countries, cities and even workshops
without reference to finishing tools; the significance of different
materials used in bookbinding; the classification of bindings by
structural type and how these developed. There will be slide
lectures each morning, with three afternoons spent looking at
examples of different binding types in Oxford college libraries.

The course is aimed at all those handling books bound in this
period, but it has particular relevance for those involved in the
repair and conservation of such materials.

Course fee: UKP360 IPC members, UKP410 non-members. The fee will
include lunches, tea and coffee, but not accommodation. Confirmation
of booking will only be made on receipt of payment. Cheques should
be made payable to the Institute of Paper Conservation, and sent to
Leigh Lodge.
