Memories of Chris Clarkson | The Book & Paper Gathering

Questa volta presento anche qualcosa di mio ho pubblicato insieme a Bernard Allen una piccola riflessione su Chris come insegnante

"Memories of Chris Clarkson

Posted on Thursday 11th May, 2017 by thebookandpapergathering
“Haven’t you heard of the Stanley 99E?” With this question and its accompanying gesture (and tad naughty smile), Christopher Clarkson once plainly dismissed the arguably decent utility knife I was offering him to take a sample of leather from a full skin. This anecdote may give an idea of how, for Mr Clarkson, nothing but the best was good enough when it came to his professional practice and its means.

Christopher Clarkson, “the pre-eminent conservator of medieval manuscripts and early printed books” as Nicholas Pickwoad describes him in his obituary, passed away on 31 March. Here, a former student and a former colleague share their reflections on Chris’ attitude towards his life and craft, and how the former was devoted to the quest for excellence in the latter.  Salvador Alcántara Peláez, The Gathering"

Ligatus Summer School 2017

Apply online by clicking here.
25-29 September 2017 and 2-6 October 2017
The Ligatus Summer School is to be hosted this year in Norwich, UK, by the Cathedral Library, located on the upper floor of the north range of the cloister. The historic collections contain the Dean and Chapter’s Library of mostly printed books from the fifteenth century onwards, augmented by the long-term deposit of the parish libraries of Swaffham, given to Swaffham Parish church by the family of the historian Henry Spelman in the early eighteenth century and that of Great Yarmouth, with a significant collection of 16th and 17th-century books.
The classes will be held within the historic library itself, and in the first week there will be in addition a one-day visit to Cambridge University Library to examine a selection of Byzantine and Islamic bindings and in the second week visits to the National Trust libraries at Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall. Blickling Hall houses the collection of the bibliophile and scholar Sir Richard Ellys (died 1742), the finest library in the National Trust portfolio and a library of international importance, with finely bound copies of books from the fifteenth century until Ellys’s death, with some later additions. Felbrigg Hall, the sixteenth-century home of the Wyndham family has an outstanding collection of books accumulated by the family over three centuries.
