The papers collected in this volume discuss descriptive methods and present conclusions relevant for the history of the book production and reception. Books printed in Europe in the 15th and 16th century still had much in common with manuscripts. They are not mere textual sources, but also material objects whose physical make-up and individual features need to be taken into account in library projects for cataloguing and digitization.

Industry Reviews

"Insgesamt bietet der vorliegende Band einen eindrucksvollen Uberblick uber aktuelle Forschungsgebiete und -tendenzen im Bereich der Inkunabel- und Fruhdruckforschung. Die Aufsatze bewegen sich uberwiegend auf hohem wissenschaftlichem Niveau und bieten trotz ihrer zum Teil sehr spezialisierten Fragestellungen stets auch befruchtende Anregungen zur Methodik der Buchgeschichtsforschung."Oliver Duntze, in: LIBREAS.Library Ideas, Jg. 8, H. 1 (20) "The volume presents a very useful conspectus of the kind of new directions in incunable research that will bear fruit in the future."Medium AevumLXXX (2011) "Nicely illustrated with colour plates and black and white reproductions, this volume is a rich and stimulating collection for anyone interested in the burgeoning study of books as material objects."Jonathan Harrison in:CILIP Rare Books Newsletter 91 (2012)
