The course description states: “This course will serve as a comprehensive introduction to the history of the book in early modern Europe, from the beginning of the fifteenth century to the middle of the seventeenth.  Our goal will be to use the holdings of the UCLA Research Library, with a focus on its Aldine collection, the Getty Research Institute Research Library, and the Huntington Library to learn to ‘read’ a Renaissance book, both as a physical object and as a carrier of cultural values.  We will examine in turn how these books were produced, how they were distributed, and how they were used by those who bought and read them.”

To apply for this course, see the California Rare Book School website.
