[BKARTS] RBS 2003 (winter/spring session courss)



This notice has been posted to the Book_Arts-L, ExLibris, and SHARP
electronic bulletin boards.

Rare Book School is pleased to announce 12 courses in its January, March,
and June 2003 sessions at the University of Virginia, four courses/session;
see

         http://www.virginia.edu/oldbooks/rbs/schedule.html

for details and

         http://www.virginia.edu/oldbooks/rbs/app.html

for a downloadable application form.
         Terry Belanger's "Book Illustration Processes to 1890" and
Nicholas Pickwoad's "European Bookbinding, 1500-1800"  will each be offered
only once in 2003, both in the January 6-10 session (i. e. neither course
will be offered during either of the July/August 2003 sessions); but
Deborah Leslie's rare book cataloging course will certainly, and David
Seaman's electronic texts and image course probably, have summer session
2003 sections as well as those announced for January and March. Christopher
Clarkson's course on medieval and early Renaissance binding structures,
offered 3-7 March 2003, will be offered again in 2005.
         Re-entering the RBS active catalog of courses, 9-13 June 2003, is
one of  possible interest particularly to those who themselves teach
courses in historical bibliography: "Teaching the History of the Book," to
be co-taught by Terry Belanger (who has been doing same since 1971) and
Daniel Traister (ditto, since the early 1980s). This course will make heavy
use of the RBS pedagogical collections (on which, see for example the
student evaluations for the RBS introduction to descriptive bibliography
course:

         http://www.virginia.edu/oldbooks/evals02/82_belanger.html

-- or, indeed, those for most of the other courses in the current RBS catalog).
         Persons interested in applying for tuition assistance for RBS 2003
(or subsequent years') courses from the James Davis Scholarship Fund should
note that this year's application deadline is 1 October; for further
information, see
