MEI Internship Project Begins: a 16th century German binding mystery solved! | Echoes from the Vault

MEI Internship Project Begins: a 16th century German binding mystery solved! | Echoes from the Vault: "MEI INTERNSHIP PROJECT BEGINS: A 16TH CENTURY GERMAN BINDING MYSTERY SOLVED!
29/07/2014 · by St Andrews Special Collections · in Rare Book Collection. ·

Opening a new mystery: St Andrews’ copy of vol. 1 of the 1489 printing of Alexander of Hales’s Summa universae theologiae
This summer, St Andrews began contributing information about its earliest printed books to CERL’s Material Evidence in Incunabula project. This project, initiated and directed by Dr Cristina Dondi, seeks to pull together all of the material evidence left by owners, booksellers, binders, and others appearing on all books printed prior to 1500. As an intern, I have begun the thrilling (and monumental) task of pulling together every mark found on St Andrews’ 150+ XVth century printed books.

The kind of research this project entails concerns the provenance of a book, which is to say its history of ownership.  From clues like signatures, shelf marks, and bookplates, it is possible with some careful digging to discover where a book was before it came to its 21st century resting place."
