Book Studies and Political Science Collide!

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Alvaro Meneses, Bibliographer, and Professor of Political Science at the University of San Pablo, paid a visit to our ¨conservation lab¨with his class today. Gary and Joyce talked about different book structures.

Chris Ryan gave a brief talk on early books printed at the Oldest University in Spain which is in Salamanca.


I demonstrated the construction of the ¨z¨ flags we use for cataloging and the reconstruction of a torn page. Gary showed a very large bible he has been working on by flattening pages and mending tears.
