Incunabula in the Westminster Abbey and Westminster School libraries by Christopher D Cook( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Westminster Abbey is closely connected with the early history of printing in England: England's first printer, William Caxton, had his workshop within the monastery walls. Both the Abbey and the adjacent Westminster School have profited by the learning and generosity of generations of bishops, deans, canons and teachers, who donated or bequeathed them their collections of incunabula. Eighty-five editions of books printed before 1501, including seventeen fragments, several of great rarity and importance, have been described in this volume ... They reflect the scholarly interests and collecting habits of their former owners, ranging widely in subject and originating from a variety of European presses. The descriptions, by Christopher D. Cook, pay much attention to copy-specific features. About half the volumes are in contemporary or near-contemporary bindings, mostly English, but several from the Continent, and these have been identified and described by Mirjam Foot. Many of the works have early annotations and/or marginal notes, bearing witness to their ownership and the use their readers made of them, as well as providing evidence for the importation of early books--bound and unbound--into England. A detailed bibliography, concordances with major catalogues of incunabula elsewhere, indexes of printers, publishers, donors and former owners (with short biographies), copy-specific features, binders and binding features, complete this useful and interesting volume"--

Dante at Illinois by Christopher D Cook( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dante at Illinois celebrates the rich holdings of The Rare Book & Manuscript Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It is no surprise to find the medieval poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) well-represented at Illinois, a place rich in early editions of classics of literature, history, philosophy, and science. The author of the Divina commedia, or Divine Comedy, stands as Italy's foremost poet, and continues to speak to his readers nearly seven hundred years after his death. In America, Dante is as popular today as he ever has been. The encyclopedic nature of Dante's Divina commedia and the humanness of his lesser works such as the Vita nuova, or New Life, provoke endless interpretation and reinterpretation"--University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University Library website

"Glory o' the dawn" by Harold Trowbridge Pulsifer( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'Glory o' the Dawn,' a short tale of coastal Maine, an outcast craftsman is caught up in a small-town curfuffle when he builds an exquisite but ill-fated model of a ship. Harold Pulsifer weaves diverse threads about ships and the sea, small town society, near-obsessive perfectionism, nostalgia, and letting go. When these threads are pulled together, the reader is left to contemplate the meaning of human dignity. In Pulsifer's 'Gloucester - Offshore' the author waxes philosophical while recounting a perilous night at sea in dense fog."--Cover
