Books Before Print Review ï 6 Istorical roots of human interaction with written information It highlights extraordinary continuities between medieval book culture and modern world communication as witnessed in medieval pop up books posters speech bubbles book advertisements and even sticky note. So I m looking for ways to incorporate manuscripts into my medieval world literature class this fall the students were really into them this past spring and so I want to do a better job of integrating discussions of manuscripts into the class as a whole rather than simply doing an introductory mini unit on them and not coming back to them again I read this for teaching purposes and in that sense I don t know how useful it will be it s mostly focused on book production in medieval Europe so I think I ll have to look elsewhere for the book in China medieval Ira etc but I thought it would be great for a class on manuscripts You d want something that goes in depth with like paleography later in the class but this gives a good readable introduction to a lot of aspects of book history and it s thoroughly illustrated with examples from manuscripts which is so helpful I have a few uibbles I think it could have used another pass with a copy editor because there are some confusing sentences and at least in the ebook version I read there s this weird error in the bibliography where some of Christopher de Hamel s books are attributed to John Haines right in front of him alphabetically I also think Kwakkel could have explained his definition of book in the introduction a little because why would it be intuitive or readily apparent that in order to be a real book something would need to be built from double leaves sheets that are folded and set together into gatherings or uires But overall it was a pretty fun read and I think it would be really good for an introductory class on book history

Books Before Print Review ï 6 This beautifully illustrated book provides an accessible introduction to the medieval manuscript and what it can tell us about the world in which it was made and used Captured in the materiality of manuscripts are the data enabling us to make sense of the preferenc. Books Before Print at least in its paperback version hits the sweet spot of being affordable and accessible to an undergraduate audience which is studying the history of the book for the first time Various aspects of the study of codexes are discussed through short written chapters which make mostly of copious full colour images and good use of modern comparatives even if Kwakkel occasionally pushes them too far are volvelles really like a smartphone app Eh There are a couple of typos like iste liber pertinent should of course be pertinet and oddities with the translations the anathema clause on p 146 includes the phrase et cum Iuda proditore Domini perpetuo cremetur incendio which is silently omitted from the translation given on p 149 that I don t think undergrads will notice and that I don t think detract from the book s overall utilityDepending on the course you re teaching you may want to supplement this with other texts Almost all of the exemplars cited come from western European contexts there are one or two references to Russian manuscripts a single reference to micrography in Hebrew manuscripts and nothing that I can remember about Arabic manuscripts If you re trying to incorporate palaeography as well as codicology Clemens and Graham is still a stronger option But as an introductory text for a general audience this is really well done

Books Before Print Review ï 6 Es and habits of the individuals who made up medieval society With short chapters grouped under thematic headings Books Before Print shows how we may tap into the evidence and explores how manuscripts can act as a vibrant and versatile tool to understand the deep h. As a complete newcomer to the history of the book I found Books Before Print to be an extremely helpful clear and even fun read Dr Erik Kwakkel examines topics such as the material medieval manuscripts were composed of the design features of medieval manuscripts and the economics around the medieval book trade My own interest varied from topic to topic but the brevity of the chapters ensured topics didn t drag on He includes many fascinating and enjoyable images of medieval books along the way and offers humourous and witty remarks that keeps the discussion lively I most appreciated how the author draws connections between medieval book culture to the present for instance a pointing hand in the margins of a medieval book indicated the text being pointed to was important and when we stop at the crosswalk there is often a similar image of a hand advising us to push the crosswalk button
