Encuadernaciones de los Bradel

Les Bradel forment une grande famille de relieurs qui ont connu leur heure de gloire au début du 19e siècle, laissant à la postérité la fameuse reliure à la Bradel. Voici quelques étiquettes provenant de plusieurs relieurs (ou ateliers) portant le nom de Bradel, relieurs à redécouvrir.

The Archaeology of the Book:
Formulating Analytical Research Questions

By Mark Clarke


In addition to being vehicles for the transmission of texts and images, books are also archaeological artefacts, and an archaeological approach benefits both conservators and historians of the book. Chemical analysis can, for example, confirm provenance, distinguish hands within a manuscript, and identify alterations due to aging or deliberate modification, in the latter case by identifying anachronistic elements.
