        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 also open its collections to students following the
course
        on French gold-tooled bindings.

        The courses will take place in Lyon from the 25th to the 28th April
2005.
        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.
