Twelfth Biennial Conference of the Early Book Society in collaboration with the Twelfth York Manuscripts Conference

in honour of Professor Toshiyuki Takamiya
3-7 July 2011

Centre for Medieval Studies
University of York

The Early Book Society will hold its twelfth biennial conference in collaboration with the York Manuscripts Conference, at the Centre for Medieval Studies, University of York, from the 3rd to the 7th of July 2011. The theme of this year's conference will be Out of Bounds: Mobility, Movement and Use of Manuscripts and Printed Books, 1350-1550. This theme may be interpreted literally or figuratively: papers might consider unbound or rebound MSS and books, or MSS and books without bindings (rolls), or marginalia beyond the boundaries of the text, or
the ways in which such boundaries might be created, or even MSS and books that travel from their place of origin. Secondary threads running through the conference will be related to Prof. Takamiya's manuscripts or Nicholas Love (the conference includes a visit to Mount Grace Priory). Please submit proposals for 20-minute papers relating to the conference themes either to Martha Driver or Linne Mooney by 1 December 2010. Proposals sent via email should be copied to both
(LRM3@york.ac.uk and MDriver@pace.edu) or by post to Martha:
