 Early Printed Books as Material Objects:  Proceedings of the Conference organized by the IFLA Rare Books and Manuscripts Section  

Munich, 19–21 August 2009

 Edited by Bettina Wagner and Marcia Reed

 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.
