  • The Biblical Genealogies of the King James Bible (1611): Their Purpose,
           Sources, and Significance
    • Authors: Macfarlane K.
      Pages: 131 - 158
      Abstract: AbstractThis article provides a systematic analysis of the genealogies prefixed to the King James Bible (1611), giving the first examination of their contemporary significance and purpose, as well as the collaboration between the Hebraist Hugh Broughton and the cartographer John Speed that produced them. By placing the diagrams within the context of Speed and Broughton's greater interests, as well as through the use of several previously unstudied drafts, it will show that the genealogies had a clear polemical function, emerged from a subsidiary of the thriving field of chronology, and can be placed within a longstanding visual tradition capable of explaining many of the peculiarities on which modern scholars have remained silent. Finally, it will argue that the genealogies were an ingenious kind of ‘reading technology’ produced through a synthesis of sacred and secular scholarship that aimed to transmit the products of learned, neo-Latin scholarship to an unlearned, English readership.

  • Negligence and Virtue: Errata Notices and their Evangelical Use
    • Authors: Da Costa A.
      Pages: 159 - 173
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay is a comprehensive and detailed account of the use of errata notices in early English printing. It demonstrates that errata notices were almost unknown in books printed in English before the late 1520s and that they came into more frequent use because writers and printers saw their marketing or rhetorical potential and not because printers became more vigilant. In particular, it highlights the role evangelical writers had in this development, arguing that they were the first to adapt an apparatus more readily found in Latinate, scholarly works to their own vernacular productions, and they were doing so as early as 1526. In displaying an errata notice, evangelical editions drew attention to the value of their work and began a tradition in which an invitation to correct a vernacular text accorded it the esteem previously reserved for Latinate works.

  • Printed Borders for Sixteenth-Century Music or Music Paper and the Early
           Career of Music Printer Thomas East
    • Authors: Butler K.
      Pages: 174 - 202
      Abstract: AbstractImages of printed books online makes it increasingly possible to trace the use of specific printing types and design features across a wide range of publications to reveal new information about the working practices of Elizabethan printers. This study concerns two of these: the fleuron and the blank printed music stave. In the second half of the sixteenth century, an increasing number of music copyists chose to write their manuscripts on to paper with printed music staves. A subset of these music papers contains decorative fleuron borders that might be used to attribute them to specific printers or time-frames through comparison with other printed materials. This paper traces the history of three varieties of bordered music paper and explores the potential functions of framing staves in this way with regard to both music paper and printed music collections.

  • Dr Ducarel and his Books: Was André Coltée Ducarel a
           Bibliomaniac'
    • Authors: Myers R.
      Pages: 203 - 225
      Abstract: AbstractDr Andrew Coltée Ducarel (1713–1785) Huguenot, ecclesiastical and maritime lawyer, long-serving Lambeth librarian, antiquary and pioneer in the study of Anglo-Norman architecture, was a considerable book collector. His library was for use, not collected for the beauty of design or binding. There is no record of the purchases of his English books; but the surviving correspondence with his younger brother, James Coltée Ducarel, who returned to France, documents his assiduous hunt among Paris and Caen booksellers and private collectors on his brother's behalf for books on Norman and French history, genealogy, and architecture. His elderly, bibliophile cousin, Jean Millsonneau found him rare numismatic books. Ducarel left all his collections of books, manuscripts, prints and coins to his nephew, Gerard Gustavus Ducarel, who lost no time in dispersing the whole, including collections of correspondence with fellow scholars, in two sales by John Gerard and Messrs Sotheby.

    • Authors: Edwards A.
      Pages: 226 - 230
      Abstract: AbstractThis note compares the prose tract on the Battle of Flodden that was issued by Richard Faques, The trewe encounter or Batayle lately betwene Englande and Scotland (STC 11088.5), published probably in 1513, with a manuscript copy, New York, Pierpont Morgan Library, MS MA 3673. It concludes that the Morgan manuscript could have been copied from a corrected issue of Faques that does not otherwise survive.
