The new Institut d'Histoire du Livre, at Lyon

 

An important new site offering four good new databases -- for anyone interested in "the book", or in information and communication, or in libraries or France or the history of science or history in general -- has been announced at,

http://ihl.enssib.fr

This is the new "IHL / Institut d'Histoire du Livre", a joint project of Lyon's outstanding Bibliothèque Municipale and Musée de l'Imprimerie, and the Ecole des Chartes, the ENSSIB, and the Ecole Normale Sup:

Online at the new site you can find the following: use the French language site only, as several items are not (yet?) shown on the English language version --

* Ecole de l'Institut d'Histoire du Livre / Book History Workshop

"The Book History Workshop is aimed not only at book and printing historians but also at the many other specialists who encounter questions related to book and printing history in the course of their work: researchers, teachers, archivists, librarians, antiquarian booksellers, designers, etc.

"The courses offered by the Institut d'histoire du livre cover various aspects of the history of the book and graphic communications. Subjects are dealt with from both theoretical and practical points of view through illustrated lectures, discussions and the study of original documents. The collections of Lyons city library and the Museum of printing provide an important source of original documents for study.

"Each course is offered either in French or in English and is taught by a leading international specialist in the field under study.

"Upcoming IHL classes & courses -- "Organised in conjunction with the Rare Book School, Charlottesville, Virginia", as recently announced online on Exlibris --

"Courses for September 2001 -- The Lyons-based Institut d'histoire du livre is offering three advanced courses in the fields of book and printing history. These four-day courses will take place in Lyons from the 24th to the 27th September 2001 --

IHL also offers:

* Journées d'Etudes / One - Day Seminars -- for example:

 

[If your palate by now is watering, and in case you will be in Lyon or even in Paris -- Paris to Lyon is 2 hours door - to - door now, via TGV, and the train stops literally at the doorway of the Bibliothèque Municipale -- I will be happy personally to provide, to anyone:

plus enthusiastic endorsement of the Lyon Bibliothèque Municipale and Musée de l'Imprimerie, the ENSSIB, and all those involved in this IHL / Institut d'Histoire du Livre project... Lyon helped us raise our kids, their excellent Bibliothèque Municipale (Croix Rousse branch, mostly) helped them to learn their French, their wonderful Musée de l'Imprimerie taught them to bind books... and we have spent many good times living in and touring the very accessible and very beautiful Lyon area...]

 

The IHL site also offers four remarkable new online resources:

  1. L'Esprit des Livres -- Nouvelles approches pour l'étude des bibliothèques privées

    "The aim of the project is to encourage new research into the private libraries of the Ancien Régime, also to offer means of publicizing their contents in some useful manner. For a study of the catalogs of public sale from the period 1680-1811, this project envisions a knowledge of private libraries of the Ancien Régime which combines the approaches of historians, librarians, and writers.

    "The research is structured around two principal themes:

    • "a computerized database of sales catalogs preserved in France
    • "a study of the libraries of the fermiers généraux, and of the effect which they had upon the book

    with access to their remarkable database -- sample entry:
