The Library is the journal of the Bibliographical Society. For more than a hundred years it has been the pre-eminent UK scholarly journal for the study of bibliography and of the role of the book in history. All aspects of descriptive, analytical, textual and historical bibliography come within its scope, including the history of the production, distribution and reception of books, both manuscript and printed; the history of collecting and of libraries; paper, printing types, book illustration, and binding; and the transmission of texts and their authenticity. Each quarterly issue of The Library contains approximately 120 pages, illustrated where necessary. As well as articles and notes, each issue includes book reviews and lists of recent books and periodicals in the field. A comprehensive index is issued annually

5 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue contains descriptions of the printed music in liturgical incunabala in the great libraries of England and France, and the United States. It seeks to compare the different methods of printing music and to define the different styles [of liturgical music incunabala]."--Introduction
Eloquent witnesses : bookbindings and their history : a volume of essays dedicated to the memory of Dr. Phiroze Randeria( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays - edited and in many cases expanded versions of lectures delivered over a dozen years - demonstrates the change in direction the study of bookbinding history has taken. Much of the work published here is based on minute observation of details of structure, techniques and materials, as well as on close study of decorative tools and the ways in which these were used to achieve the many splendid designs that reflect the styles and fashions of their day."--Jacket

Dated & datable English manuscript borders, c. 1395-1499 by Kathleen L Scott( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Borders, the continuous decoration around the outside part or whole of a text page in a medieval book, were a relatively common sight and presumably a pleasure to the medieval reader. Borders served to communicate to the reader the beginning of a significant division in the text, such as a chapter, or the start of a new text in a book containing several works. Bar-like framework, trelliswork, human figures, flowers, plants, sprays, sprigs, interlaces, grotesques, and various stylized motifs were the components of English borders, which sometimes also occured in conjunction with miniatures, historiated initials, and coats of arms. Because borders were composed of artistic images and because they appear over an extended period of time (in this case, somewhat over one hundred years), the representations changed in style, and certain motifs or renderings became identifiable with a certain shorter period. Unless signed by a scribe or containing some internal historical reference, manuscripts can otherwise be difficult to date with much precision. Borders in a dated or datable manuscript can however be used as a means of comparison with undated decoration in other books, since borders generally evolved in style and rendering more quickly than scribal hands." "The present handbook is a sourcebok and vade-mecum for comparing dated styles of borders with undated borders and for helping to estimate the period, at least to a quarter century and sometimes less, in which a late medieval English manuscript was produced and decorated. In some instances the handbook also provides a locale or probable locale in which the border originated. All things great and small, from texts to paraffs, come together to reveal the history of a medieval book."--Jacket

The earliest books of Canterbury Cathedral : manuscripts and fragments to c. 1200 by Canterbury Cathedral( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the greatest literary centres throughout the Middle Ages, Canterbury still preservers - despite horrendous losses - a significant collection of medieval manuscripts. In this book Professor Richard Gameson has described and discussed all Canterbury's pre-thirteenth-century manuscripts for the first time. Each manuscript is illustrated in colour, several with more than one image. Highlights range from the oldest copies of the Alfredian translation of Gregory the Great's Dialogues, and of Lanfranc's gloss on the Epistles, through fine liturgica, to an extraordinarily grand copy of Peter Comestor's Historia Scholastica. Detailed descriptions are complemented by broad-ranging analyses that explain the significance of these works in general and of the Canterbury copies in particular. In a substantial introduction Professor Gameson traces the history of book-production in Kent and Canterbury up to c. 1200, follows the development and use of the Canterbury collections in the later Middle Ages, and discusses the fate of these books at the Reformation."--Jacket
