Descripción Burt Franklin,, New York:, 1970. red cloth. Reprint of original 1931 edition.. octavo, (xx), 368 pp. In the Middle Ages books and honesty were rare and books were kept in cupboards, in chests or more likely chained to desks or tables. Therefore the design of a library was dominated by this practice of chaining books: the structure of the bookcase was determined by the length of the chain and a window having to be near the book determined the plan of the building. This book is a study in the evolution of the structure and ornamental and decorative design of these historic English libraries. With 93 illustrations and plans. Bottom third of pages rippled from damp but no damp smell. Name and date on front pastedown. Nº de ref. de la librería 26293

Descripción Cambridge Library Collection, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.B. H. Streeter (1874-1937) was an Oxford theologian and biblical scholar. From 1915 to 1934 he was a canon of Hereford Cathedral, which is famous for its medieval chained library. Books were rare and precious items in the middle ages, and were frequently chained to the bookshelf and read on the lectern below to prevent unauthorised removal. Streeter s researches during the Hereford library s restoration led to the publication in 1931 of this illustrated study of early English libraries. It examines in detail the arrangement of libraries from medieval times to the eighteenth century, focusing on cathedral, college and parish libraries in England. Examining their floor plans, the form of their desks, shelves and seating arrangement, Streeter identifies distinct variations in design. Libraries are working buildings, and alter over time with the needs of their users, but Streeter s wide-ranging expertise allows him to reconstruct their earlier configurations.
