What Is a Second Edition? A Pictorial Introduction to Bibliographical Terms
10 a.m.–11 a.m.
In this webinar, Huntington Curator of Rare Books Stephen Tabor explains how printing technology developed from the hand-press period to the early 20th century, shows how to spot different typesettings and impressions, and explores how basic bibliographical terms have been used variously by book historians, publishers, and booksellers. Illustrations include examples of varying quality to show how photographic reproductions can produce false clues and digital red herrings. The webinar is useful for collectors (or people thinking of becoming collectors!), dealers, and anybody who works with printed texts or digital copies of originals. This event is part of an ongoing webinar series presented by the Library's Reader Services Department.
The event will be held online via Zoom at 10 a.m. (PDT). Zoom link will be sent to attendees in registration confirmation email. This event will be recorded.
