World's Oldest Substantial Book Digitized


Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1600 years ago, the manuscript contains the Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament. Its heavily corrected text is of outstanding importance for the history of the Bible and the manuscript ? the oldest substantial book to survive Antiquity ? is of supreme importance for the history of the book.

'Longest copyright ... ever'


From SlashDot.org: "The BBC is reporting that the United Nations' World Digital Library has gone online with an initial offering of 1,200 ancient manuscripts, parchments and documents. ... Astonishingly, the collection is covered by numerous copyright laws, according to the legal page. Use of material from a given country is subject to whatever restrictions that country places, in addition to any local and international copyright laws. With some of the contributions being over 8,000 years old, this has to be the longest copyright extension ever offered. There is nothing on whether the original artists get royalties, however."

Thanks Nick! They'd better get ready for a handful of grad students requesting images all at once.

Joe & Ryan Book Project: H.D. Thoreau


After noticing the substantial collection of Thoreau's works in Rare Books, Joe and I decided to use him for our book project. We probably won't focus on a single work. Thoreau kept many records of various natures: from light musing to agricultural information. We plan on hunting around for interesting texts to see which ones interest us and offer enough material for the project.



We've already been to Rare Books to see their first edition of Walden, and for as relatively recent as the text is, there is a surprising amount of information available in examining the codex. There are also plenty of unanswered questions, which is what interests us. One possible route would involve comparing subsequent publications of Walden through the close of the 18th century.
