Sidney Tibbetts offers Austin Book Workers,
"A meander through Abbot Ellinger's manuscript miscellany"

During her presentation, Sidney Tibbetts will meander through an eleventh-century monastic manuscript in The Harry Ransom Center collection that has an assortment of astrological, classical, encyclopedic, and other texts in a late medieval binding structure. In this talk, Sidney will demonstrate how the various physical features in this manuscript help us determine its origin, history and how it may have been used over several centuries.
Sidney earned a PhD in Medieval History from the University of Cambridge in 2002, and she will soon complete a Master's degree in Information Science and Preservation Administration at UT-Austin. While wearing her palaeographer's hat, she has also cataloged both Latin and vernacular manuscripts dating from the years 600 - 1600 at Princeton University, the Ransom Center, and private collections, and she has researched manuscripts in a number of European repositories.


This program will interest calligraphers, book binders, book historians and folks who want to know about the everyday life of European monks in the 11th century !
Don't miss it!


Also -
Beatrice Baldwin will bring some pop-up book structures created by her students at St. Stephens School;
