Houghton Library: Introduction to Bibliography

Come and learn how to “read” books as physical objects – more than just the words they contain.  A brief introduction to the principles and practice of descriptive and analytical bibliography, the significance to textual analysis, and the importance to the study of the history of the book.

Houghton is offering a set of presentations and workshops designed to introduce graduate students to the examination of books as physical objects. These classes will enhance understanding in any field of study as students learn to “read” a book for evidence of its production context, its cultural value, and the experience of its readers through time.  These classes can be taken separately, or as a set.
