Archive for June, 2013

Just back from a week at Rare Book School, at Yale University.   This was my fifth RBS course, all of them having to do with medieval books, mainly in manuscript, but also in print.   I took Barbara Shailor’s Advanced Seminar on Medieval Manuscripts, which was very good, especially since we got to use manuscripts from the Beinecke Library, which has a large and varied collection.  Also having the expertise of Barbara Shailor, herself, and that of my fellow students in the course, who all came with a variety of experience with this kind of material, was very enlightening.   Anyone who works with rare books or special collections, whether as their primary work as a librarian, or directly as a scholar should check out RBS for it’s course offerings, as they are really very useful.

Having just returned, I was also pleased that someone posted (on the Medieval History Discussion List) a link to this blog entry on marginalia in medieval manuscripts.
