About this title


Meaning "provided with marginal annotations," marginated neatly describes the items featured in this extensively researched catalogue. From presentation inscriptions to readers' commentaries to children's doodles, the variety of annotations that appear in these 17th-century books gives unique insight into the lives of their readers-and, indeed, into the lives of the books, as they passed from owner to owner. This catalogue was published to accompany a 2010 exhibit at the University of Alberta's Bruce Peel Special Collections Library and features items from the Library's collection.


This book is a companion to the Marginated exhibit at the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library at U of Alberta. Marginated is a 17th century word meaning 'provided with marginal annotations, ' and this exhibition illuminates evidence of reading and handling of 17th century books. Books from this exhibit feature markings related to the book price and sales, the reuse of older books in book bindings, and referencing systems added by readers. Photos of the book pages are paired with text providing translation and context. Reference and Research Book News
