bonæ litteræ: occasional writing from David Rundle, Renaissance scholar

Codicology Bibliography

Perhaps there should be a comma, a slash or some other punctation between those two words. The purpose of this page is to present the reading list I have compiled for the module I am teaching at the Palazzo Rucellai ‘Translating the Past’ summer school. It is about to enter its third iteration, the first being in June 2010 and the second exactly a year later. The course I teach covers matters both codicological and bibliographical — that is, both manuscripts and incunabula. The list of suggested reading, as I have explained in a posting about it, is highly selective and is intended to whet the appetite.

It is particularly pertinent to my current research on Dante’s metaphors of manuscript production. Thank-you!
