Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Fine
Auflage: First Edition
Unused pristine copy bound in mauve cloth with gilt title on spine. Dust jacket is pristine, unclipped, and protected in mylar. Provides a historical background using scribes' own words to illustrate the tribulations involved in reproducing manuscripts in the Middle Ages. Then it explores the unusual use of book curses as they appeared in ancient clay tablets and papyrus scrolls, and ultimately in Medieval manuscripts. Anyone who has ever lent a book and never gotten it back will appreciate "This book belongs to none but me/ For there's my name inside to see./ To steal this book, if you should try,/ it's by the throat that you'll hang high./ And ravens then will gather 'bout/ to find your eyes and pull them out./ and when you're screaming 'oh, oh, oh!'/ remember, you dieserved this woe." 138 pages include B&W photos, sources.
