Lyon Winter Workshop 2021

Following on from the Udine colloquium organised by Sergio Cappello and Neil Harris of the Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici e del Patrimonio Culturale that looked at the role played by Sammelbände in the survival of imprints, a workshop will be organised at Enssib (École Nationale Supérieure des Sciences de l’information et des Bibliothèques) on Friday 26 November 2021.

Organised by the Gabriel Naudé research centre, the event will concentrate on aspects such as the role of bindings and how they can be analysed, as well as delving into different case studies that will allow us to compare these volumes and their characteristics across Europe with papers analysing Belgian, Dutch, French and Italian Sammelbände.

The previous day, participants will be treated to a visit of the Museum of Printing and Graphic Communication of the city of Lyon housed in a beautiful Renaissance townhouse. The visit will feature a work session devoted to the sixteenth-century collection of the library with both bound items and fragments.

The workshop at Enssib, the following day will conclude with a practical session on some everyday sixteenth-century and early seventeenth-century bindings taken from Enssib’s pedagogic library as well as some items from private collections. The event will be capped off with a paper on a fascinating bibliographical conundrum presented by Neil Harris who has been invited by Enssib as one of the institution’s distinguished fellows for 2021.
