The Whole book : cultural perspectives on the medieval miscellany( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term miscellany has traditionally been used, for want of a better term, but such a collection could very well be described as the "hard disk" of the medieval codex: it was a space on which almost any kind of information could be stored in a variety of formats - texts, pictures, designs, symbols, etc. Like the hard disk of a computer, it offered a seemingly vast, though of course in fact limited, space for recording items. It furthermore inspired numerous ways of organizing, distributing, and codifying the information to facilitate retrieval. The Whole Book deals with manuscripts from the early Middle Ages to humanist works of the early Renaissance, and it presents the conditions of production and analyzes the organizational techniques in particular kinds of miscellanies

The evidence in hand : report of the Task Force on the Artifact in Library Collections by Task Force on the Artifact in Library Collections( Book )

14 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report discusses the ways in which artifacts and their physical frailties affect their research value--originality, faithfulness, fixity, and stability--over time and how libraries can minimize the risk of unacceptable loss of that value. It investigates the specific issues around selected media, such as paper-based printed matter, moving image and recorded sound materials, and objects that exist in digital form, and points to two key strategies currently in use in libraries that can be scaled up to deal with a problem of this magnitude. The first strategy is preventive maintenance, which most often entails storing items under optimal conditions to retard rates of natural decay. Prevention also includes such techniques as deacidifying items printed on wood-pulp paper, stabilizing bindings and encasing fragile items, and improving care and handling techniques for all library materials. The second strategy is the use of surrogates to reduce the stress of handling. For research purposes, digital surrogates in particular were found to be quite acceptable and were even preferable to the originals in a number of cases. Surrogates, especially when networked, have the added benefit of increasing access to an item and of providing convenience of access to items housed at distant or disparate locations.

From parchment to cyberspace : medieval literature in the digital age by Stephen G Nichols( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Parchment to Cyberspace argues the case for studying high-resolution digital images of original manuscripts to analyze medieval literature. By presenting a rigorous philosophical argument for the authenticity of such images (a point disputed by digital skeptics) the book illustrates how digitization offers scholars innovative methods for comparing manuscripts of vernacular literature--such as The Romance of the Rose or texts by Christine de Pizan--that reveal aspects of medieval culture crucial to understanding the period. --

Concepts of criticism by René Wellek( Book )

45 editions published between 1963 and 1997 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provocative and penetrating, these essays attest to Mr. Wellek?s intense concern during the past two decades with the problems besetting the disciplines of literary theory, criticism, and history. Each essay accordingly sets as its goal the development of a concept that will contribute to better understanding of the literary work. Trenchant investigation of such significant critical concepts as baroque, romanticism, and realism are complemented by illuminating surveys of the current state of literary criticism and related commentaries on contemporary literary theory and scholarship. Concepts of Criticism constitutes a valuable statement of Mr. Wellek?s theoretical position. A number of the essays are published for the first time and a bibliography of Mr. Wellek?s publications is included. Ren ̌Wellek, author of A History of Modern Criticism, 1750-1950, is Sterling Professor of Comparative Literature at Yale
Spectral sea : Mediterranean palimpsests in European culture by Stephen G Nichols( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the dawn of ancient civilization to modern times, the Mediterranean Sea looms in the imagination of the people living on its shores as a space of myth and adventure, of conquest and confrontation, of migration and settlement, of religious ferment and conflict. Since its waters linked the earliest empires and centers of civilization, the Mediterranean generated globalization and multiculturalism. It gave birth to the three great monotheisms-Judaism, Christianity, and Islam-religions of the book, of the land and of the sea. Over the centuries, the Mediterranean witnessed the rise and fall of some of the oldest civilizations in the world. And as these cultures succeeded one another, century after century, each left a tantalizing imprint on later societies. Like the ancient artifacts constantly washed up from its depths, the lost cities and monuments abandoned in its deserts or sunk beneath its waves, Mediterranean topography and culture is a chaotic present spread over a palimpsest many layers deep.0No region grappled more continuously with, nor was more deeply marked by Mediterranean culture and history than Europe. Europe's religions, its languages, its learning, its laws, its sense of history, even its food and agriculture, all derived from Greek, Roman, and-in the Middle Ages-Muslim and Jewish cultures. The essays in this book lay bare the dynamics of cultural confrontation between Europe and the Mediterranean world from medieval to modern times. One momentous result of this engagement was the creation of vernacular languages and the diverse body of literature, history, and art arising from them. The achievements of the arts reveal-to borrow a geological metaphor-the grinding tectonic pates of Mediterranean cultures and languages butting up against pre-existing European strata
