Description

This book historical project will a) reconstruct six, demonstrably important but hitherto poorly studied collections known to have existed in the period considered, b) examine the preserved volumes for annotations and other reader reactions, placed in their cultural context and c) study available (near-)contemporaneous metatexts (library histories, mentions of a given library in texts produced by readers, etc.) on the collections under consideration, in order to assess the role of the six libraries in preserving and transmitting knowledge as well as catalysing new ways of thinking.
