The beginnings of Venator &amp; Hanstein go back to the 1930s when the idea was created to re-animate the long tradition of book and print auctions in the historically significant publishing city of Cologne. From 1946 to 1950 auctions were held under the company name "Ringbuchhandlung August Nethe Co." on the Hohenzollernring in downtown Cologne, in 1951 the name was changed to "Nethe and Venator". Rolf Venator has been part of this success story from the very beginning and has lead the company under the name "Venator KG" since 1953. The antiquarian book auction house had its first seat in the Breite Strasse and from there moved to St. Apern Strasse. In 1984 Prof. Henrik R. Hanstein joined the company as a partner and the offices were moved to the Kunsthaus Lempertz building.

It will tackle the economic and technical revolutions that frequently forced publishers to adapt rapidly to new circumstances, and it will discuss the changing legal environment, in particular the Net Book Agreement and the changes in national and international intellectual property law. The course will consist of two distinct types of seminar, which will complement each other.&nbsp; Firstly there will be &lsquo;narrative&rsquo; seminars that provide a broadly chronological account of developments over the period.

This course will follow European bookbinding from the end of the Middle Ages to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, using the bindings themselves to illustrate the aims and intentions of the binding trade. A large part of the course will be devoted to the identification of both broad and detailed distinctions within the larger groups of plain commercial bindings and the possibilities of identifying the work of different countries, cities, even workshops without reference to finishing tools. The identification and significance of the different materials used in bookbinding will be examined, as well as the classification of bookbindings by structural type, and how these types developed through the three centuries covered by the course.

Topics include: woodblock printing, moveable type, missionary printing, and special seminars on the book in Edo and Meiji Japan, printing and literary culture in late Imperial China, and the book and empire in India. A general survey, this course is intended as a complement to The Printed Book in Europe, offering participants a more globally informed perspective on the history of the printed book. </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2307-london_rare_books_school_week_2_-_the_printed_book_in_the_east_china_india_and_japan.html 2015/07/06 London Rare Books School, Week 2 - Communicating with the Public in the Second World War: The Ministry of Information, 1939-46 <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2308/100/100/image.jpg" alt="London Rare Books School, Week 2 - Communicating with the Public in the Second World War: The Ministry of Information, 1939-46" align="left" /> The Ministry of Information (MOI) was established in the UK at the beginning of the Second World War. Its roles were many: to communicate information to, and maintain the morale of, the domestic population of the UK; to present Britain&rsquo;s case to those in allied and neutral countries; to provide government with accurate reports of public opinion; and to operate a system of censorship. This course will explore the MOI&rsquo;s involvement in the publishing of books and pamphlets; the distribution of posters and the circulation of displays, lectures and exhibitions; and the commissioning of broadcasts and films. The MOI was a nodal point within a dense network of communications which involved, among others, various government ministries, the BBC, Mass Observation, and Fleet Street. It will allow students of book history to see their subject in a much wider context: that of the history of communication. This course is based on new research by the AHRC-funded four-year project on the communication history of the MOI currently being undertaken in the IES. It will be taught in the very building occupied by the MOI during the period. </td> </tr> </table> https://www.ilab.org/eng/news/2308-london_rare_books_school_week_2_-_communicating_with_the_public_in_the_second_world_war_the_ministry_of_information_1939-46.html 2015/07/06 AntiquarianAuctions.com - Auction #44 – International online auction of rare books, maps & prints, documents, letters, ephemera and vintage photography <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td style=" font: normal 11px Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> <img src="https://www.ilab.org/thumb/news/2312/100/100/image.jpg" alt="AntiquarianAuctions.com - Auction #44 – International online auction of rare books, maps & prints, documents, letters, ephemera and vintage photography" align="left" /> <p>AntiquarianAuctions.com &ndash; the online rare book auction site runs online auctions every 5 weeks.

Participants will recreate a vellum over boards binding of Hesiod&rsquo;s Works and Days printed by BartolomeoZanetti in Venice in 1537. This style of binding was used in Venice c. 1490 &ndash; 1670 and often characterized by the use of recycled vellum manuscripts applied flesh side out. The binding features sewing supports covered with alum tawed patches; the vellum over the patches is cut away, creating small slots, which allow for greater flexibility in opening. Additional structural features, including transverse spine linings and a wide fore edge turn-in, help to balance the tension of the vellum on the boards and limit warping. Drawing on their recent study of similar bindings at the New York Public Library, the Newberry Library and the University of Chicago, course tutors will discuss how this binding style evolved and eventually fell out of use, providing an interesting case study of the economics and aesthetics of 16th and early 17th century Venetian book production.

The smaller pocket books may have been less expensive, but they could still be made luxurious with decoration added by hand and bindings embellished with gold. They quickly became popular and were collected throughout Europe by scholars, aristocrats and kings. Special copies were also produced, printed on parchment instead of paper. The course will focus on a copy of an edition of the Greek poet Oppian, published in 1517, bound by the Royal Binder for Henri II King of France and part of the Royal Library at Fontainebleau. Bound in full leather in the allaGreca style, a wooden boarded, Western /Greek style binding with claps and bosses, with gold finishing and hand painting, it is a complex book that would ordinarily take many weeks and a high level of binding skill to complete.

Participants will make a model of the structure, paying particular attention to the significant properties of the spine lining, board attachment and endbands, before undertaking the raised cord work decoration.
