Abstracts are invited for papers on the history of manuscripts, printed books,
libraries, editing, collectors, etc. in the period 1350-1700.  This year's
emphasis will be on Continental topics, 1350-1700. Papers may focus (but need not)
on relations between books and manuscripts:  marginalia and interleaved
manuscripts, 'foul' papers, and the effect of manuscript aesthetics on conventions
of printed decoration, type, and layout.

Please submit a 150-word abstract, with a brief CV (one page), by APRIL 30, 2002.
Acceptances will be mailed out (or e-mailed) in early May, 2002. Anyone whose
proposal is accepted is required to be a member of RSA at the time of registration
for the Toronto meeting: August 15, 2002).
