Chris Clarkson Lecture Notice

This notice is being posted on several lists.  Please excuse the duplication.

On Thursday, August 7, 1997, at 5:00 p.m., Christopher Clarkson will present
an illustrated lecture with the title: "An Introduction to Medieval
Bookbinding Structures," in Room 101, McCormick Hall (same building as the
Art Museum), on the Princeton University campus.  A reception immediately
following the lecture will be held in the Main Exhibition Gallery, Firestone
Library, a short walk away.

The lecture is jointly sponsored by the Friends of the Princeton University
Library and the Preservation Office and the Department of Rare Books and
Special Collections, Princeton University Library, and it is open to members
of the University community and the general public.

Christopher Clarkson directs the Book and Manuscript Conservation Workshops
and their related internship program at West Dean College, Sussex, England.
Formerly Conservation Officer at the Bodleian Library, Oxford University, he
also helped develop rare book conservation programs at the Library of
Congress.  An internationally renowned consultant on the care of medieval
manuscripts and bindings, he went to Florence, Italy, as part of an English
disaster recovery team responding to the mass destruction of books and other
cultural property caused by the flooding of the Arno River in November 1966.
He has also taught a course in medieval and Renaissance bookbinding
structures at Rare Book School at the University of Virginia (and earlier at
Columbia University) since 1983.

We hope that you can join us for this event.
