Rare books and special collections by Sidney E Berger( Book )

16 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From cuneiform, coins, and codices to prints, drawings, photographs, and maps, departments of rare books and special collections are the premier repositories of significant printed and manuscript works and artifacts. Entrusted with the responsibility of preserving the records of history and culture, these institutions enable access to millions of source materials. Berger, a veteran of rare book and special collections, offers a landmark examination of this field, aimed at practitioners in the library field, instructors teaching courses on the subject, booksellers, private collectors, historians, bibliophiles, and others involved in rare and unique materials. Showing readers everything they need to know about rare books and special collections, this wide-ranging book offers coverage of such key topics as: the profession's history and its relevance in the face of an increasingly digital world; archives' relationship to the special collections department and their role in the wider institution; collection development, cataloging, processing, physical layout, and other operational functions, with coverage of acquisition sources and methods; what everyone needs to know about the physical materials in their care, including preservation, conservation, and restoration, storage, handling, and security; reference and outreach services, including a look at exhibitions and tours; fundraising and financial management; legal and ethical issues; forgeries, fakes, and facsimiles; bibliography and its impact on the rare book world, including a look at booksellers, donors, and auctions; the present state of books in our digital environment; the vocabulary of the trade. Rare Books and Special Collections presents a meticulous and systematic understanding of this growing field

Medieval English drama : an annotated bibliography of recent criticism by Sidney E Berger( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2020 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1990, Medieval English Drama is an exhaustive bibliography of scholarship on medieval English drama. Each item has been annotated in the bibliography with considerable care; these annotations are descriptive rather than critical and give a clear synopsis of the content of each reference, the texts with which it deals, and a brief indication of its critical position. The bibliography is divided into two sections; editions and collections of plays, and critical works. The bibliography is exhaustive rather than selective and provides English annotations for foreign language works, as well as a list of reviews for most books. The book covers liturgical and folk drama, other forms of entertainment, and related material useful to researchers in the field. The book provides an update of sources not listed in Carl J. Stratman's comprehensive Bibliography of Medieval Drama published in 1972

Josef Halfer and the revival of the art of marbling paper : with translations of his "little texts" or "small publications" through which he brought about its renaissance by Josef Halfer( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Josef Halfer practiced and taught marbling roughly three centuries after the craft had appeared in Europe, at a time when paper marbling was in decline and being replaced by mechanically-produced substitutes. However, his innovations coincided with recent advances in chemistry, biochemistry and bacteriology, and he was able to apply those recent advances to solving problems that had long inhibited progress in the marbling art. The techniques that Halfer pioneered enabled marblers to take the craft to new artistic levels, allowing more detailed patterns to be achieved than ever before, and resulting in the most delicate, intricate and beautiful forms that the medium is capable of producing. Richard Wolfe had previously written about Halfer in his Marbled Paper: Its History, Techniques, and Patterns. (republished by Oak Knoll with corrections in 2018). In this book, Wolfe examines in more detail the contributions of one of the most important figures in the history of paper marbling, and he provides English translations of several of Halfer's "little texts." The author had written a draft of the Historical Introduction and roughly translated a number of Halfer's pamphlets on marbling before he died in October 2017. Sidney Berger agreed to take on the role of editor to help finalize the introduction and put the translations in publishable form. His efforts and the support of the Wolfe family have enabled Oak Knoll to bring Richard Wolfe's last major project to its intended readers."--Publisher's web page

Chiyogami papers = Chiyogami by Sidney E Berger( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chiyogami designs were originally developed in the Edo period as woodblock prints. The decorative papers were made into colorful paper dolls or pasted on tea tins or small paper boxes. In the twentieth century, these patterns began to be applied using silkscreens and this continues today. Henry Morris founded Bird & Bull Press in 1958, where he has published numerous studies on paper marbling. This is his seventh volume. The volumes are especially useful because of the striking samples of hand-marbled papers tipped into each copy
