The objective of this workshop is an approach to bibliographic heritage and especially to the so-called "old book", covering everything from the incunabulum period to the eighteenth century, forming the integral part of the Spanish bibliographic heritage. Craft printing; its nature and specificity; its forms, composition, description and cataloguing; as well as the difficulties that entails custodianship and preservation, they are some of the aspects that must be addressed.



  • Sources for the identification and study of the ancient Book: bibliographies, collective catalogues, repertoires, main sources of information on the Internet.
  • Analysis of the old book: problems and objectives.
  • Formal aspects: integral parts of the book. Study of the cover, Colophon, construction of notebooks, formats, artwork, etc.
  • Description and cataloguing of the ancient Book: the ISBD (A). Study of each of the areas of the ISBD and differences with modern monographs cataloging.
  • Concept of editing, issuing and State.
