I will be teaching a course on the bibliography of scientific images at Rare Book School, University of Virginia, 21 – 25 July.
This course, successfully inaugurated last year, considers the production, formal qualities, and functions of images in scientific books. The focus is on the ways that graphic technologies are combined with the printing of verbal texts and students learn the bibliographical analysis and description of illustrated books. The course should be of interest to all historians of early modern science who wish to gain an understanding of the circumstances of production and the materiality of scientific imagery in printed sources.
For more on the course and Rare Book School please follow the link – there are a number of other courses that will be of interest to readers of this website.
