Description

Personalization in MSS and Printed Books: Ownership Marks, Annotations, Emendations

This session will look at the range of ways readers make MSS and printed books their own. Provenance and records of ownership can say much about both book and owner, giving insight into reception of texts at various points in the past. Papers discuss owner autographs, drawings of heraldic emblems, devices or use of mottoes, bindings, emendations or annotations by readers, and other forms of readerly intervention to recover histories of reading and reception. -Martha W. Drivr
