      12. EUROPEAN BOOKBINDING, 1500-1800. (MONDAY-FRIDAY, JANUARY 6-10). How

      on it by the growth of printing; techniques and materials employed to meet
      these demands; the development of temporary bindings (for example,
      pamphlets and publishers' bindings); the emergence of structures usually
      associated with volume production in the c19; the dating of undecorated
      bindings; the identification of national and local binding styles.
      Instructor: Nicholas Pickwoad.

      this course at Rare Book School many times since 1987.


      21. MEDIEVAL & RENAISSANCE BOOKBINDING STRUCTURES. (MONDAY-FRIDAY, MARCH
      3-7). An explanation of the diversities of European bookbinding
      structures, up to and including the early period of more generalized
      practice and division of labor. Topics: identification (where possible) of
      the main types of binding structures; their dating and provenance; the
      recognition and recording of materials and techniques. Instructor:
