[BKARTS] Third Book History Workshop (Lyon)



______________________

BOOK HISTORY WORKSHOP
Lyon, 5 - 8 April 2004
______________________

For the third edition of its Book History Workshop, the Lyon-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:

FRENCH GOLD-TOOLED BOOKBINDINGS 1507-1967 : MAJOR WORKSHOPS AND COLLECTORS
tutor: Isabelle de Conihout and Pascal Ract-Madoux (course in French)

PRINTED EPHEMEREA UNDER THE MAGNIFYING GLASS
tutor: Michael Twyman

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

TYPE, LETTERING AND CALLIGRAPHY 1450-1830
tutor: James Mosley

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, museum curators, 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 close study of original documents. In
addition to Lyons City Library and Museum of Printing which are the
principal source of original documents for study, the Bibliothèque Mazarine
(Paris) will this year open its collections to students following the course
on French gold-tooled bindings.

The courses will take place in Lyon from the 5th to the 8th April 2004.
Classes will be held at the Ecole normale supérieure - lettres et sciences
humaines (Lyon) with sessions at the Lyon City Library, the Printing Museum
(and the Bibliothèque Mazarine, Paris in the case of the course on French
gold-tooled bindings).

Tuition 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.
