BOOK HISTORY WORKSHOP
14 - 17 October 2002
__________________________________________

For the second edition of its Book History Workshop the Lyons-based Institut
d'histoire du livre is offering three advanced four-day courses in
the fields of book and printing history. Courses on offer are:

INTRODUCTION TO ANALYTICAL BIBLIOGRAPHY
tutor Neil Harris (course in French)

CONSERVATION AND STUDY OF PRINTED EPHEMERA
tutor: Michael Twyman (course in English)

TYPE, LETTERING AND CALLIGRAPHY, 1450-1830
tutor: James Mosley (course in French)

The Book History Workshop is aimed not only at book and printing historians
but also at the many other specialists who encounter questions related to
book and printing history in the course of their work: researchers,
teachers, archivists, librarians, antiquarian booksellers, collectors,
designers, etc.

The courses offered by the Institut d'histoire du livre cover various
aspects of the history of the book and graphic communications. Subjects are
dealt with from both theoretical and practical points of view through
illustrated lectures, discussions and the study of original documents. The
collections of Lyons City Library and Museum of Printing provide an
important source of original documents for study.

Courses are offered either in French or in English, as indicated above.

The courses will take place in Lyons from the 14th to the 17th October 2002.
Classes will be held at the École normale supérieure - lettres et sciences
humaines (Lyon) with sessions at the Lyons printing Museum and the City
library.

Fee: 450 euros (mid-day meals included)

In order to facilitate access to collections of original documents the
number
of participants is limited to twelve per class.
