Rare Book School (RBS) and the Dept of Rare Books & Special Collections,
Princeton University Library, are pleased to announce a five-day Master Class
in Western Codicology, to be taught by Professor Albert Derolez (Free
Universities of Brussels) from 20-24 January 1997. The course description of
this non-credit course is as follows:
MASTER CLASS IN WESTERN CODICOLOGY. Advanced study of the physical features of
medieval manuscripts: (1) an analysis of the contents of individual codices;
and (2) establishing criteria for dating and localizing manuscripts. The course
will entirely be based on the inspection of manuscripts. Students will perform
their own codicological investigations and transcriptions of actual codices. A
good basic knowledge of paleography and Latin is necessary, and some experience
with manuscripts a recommendation. Tuition: $600.
The class will be limited to 10 students.
The course will begin informally with a reception and buffet supper on Sunday,
19 January, and end Friday, 24 January, at lunchtime, so that participants may
if they wish attend the annual meeting of the Bibliographical Society of
America taking place in New York City that afternoon. Moderately priced hotel
housing in Princeton will be available for those who need it, as well as
information about travel and other matters, according to the usual RBS customs.
Those interested in applying for admission to this course should write or fax
or email or telephone for an application form from:
