1. Smith, Jennifer Dawn. Artefact Books: Towards a Multi-field Analytical Framework for Literary Research .

Degree: 2011, National University of Ireland – Galway

While the most fundamental object of literary studies is often the codex, in this age of digital and electronic sensory inundation, it would seem that the physical book has a limited lifespan. However, the technologies continually vying to supersede the codex are instead enabling the development of different kinds of printed objects. Some of these new books transmit information in a unique way that cannot be replicated or replaced by other media such as television, the Internet, or even e-books. I have chosen the phrase "artefact book" to distinguish these works from traditional books and artists' books. The quality of the reading experience offered and demanded by artefact books is vital for paper publishing and concomitant literary studies in the face of digital and multimedia competition. The problematic ontology of artists' books has prevented both literary and artistic discourses from embracing them wholeheartedly. In essence, artefact books are those whose originators conscientiously incorporate the areas of text, art, craft, and publishing to create books that embody the originators' ideas and transport them to their readers. Within the context of literary studies, there are historical figures – William Blake, William Morris, and Laurence Sterne – who pioneered the kinds of developments that made the existence of artefact books possible. Pierre Bourdieu's field theory forms the methodological basis for investigating artefact books and their relationship with artists' books and literature, as it is the most useful way to bring the sociological turn of material culture and book history to bear on artistic and textual scholarship. The main focus of the dissertation is on the following three artefact books: Scraps of an Aborted Collaboration by Erica Van Horn (1994); READ (past, tense) by Heather Weston (2000); and York by Paul Salt (2006). Each of these books is investigated thoroughly in the context of the four subfields of text, art, craft, and publishing. The case studies demonstrate a way for scholars to synthesize their investigations using the theoretical tools of bibliography, textual analysis, art and book history, material culture, sociological field theory, and publishing studies to elucidate artefact books. The creation of this interdisciplinary framework makes it possible for artefact books, now recognizable as a robust subset of the as-yet-undefined genre of artists' books, to be analyzed within literary criticism and the field of cultural production. Advisors/Committee Members: Tilley, Elizabeth (advisor).

2. Grisoni, Lucien. Recherches sur le texte des Dialogues faits à l'imitation des anciens par Orasius Tubero : Researches on the text of the Dialogues faits à l'imitation des anciens by Orasius Tubero.

Degree: Docteur es, Philosophie, 2018, Lyon

Cette thèse est conçue comme un préalable à l’édition critique et à l’interprétation des Dialogues d’Orasius Tubero. Elle consiste en 4 séries de recherches, dont les 3 premières ([I] recherches codicologiques et recherches bibliologiques [II] sur les anciennes éditions des Dialogues et [III] sur les exemplaires des deux premières) visent à reconstituer la genèse de leur texte tandis que la quatrième ([IV] recherches historiques) est consacrée aux modalités concrètes de leur composition, de leur impression, et de leur diffusion immédiate.La première partie présente en premier lieu une étude de l’écriture (graphie) du Philosophe fondée sur le recensement et l’examen de l’ensemble des documents explicitement autographes. L’identification de sa main permet (1) de reconnaître les notes inscrites par Le Vayer dans les volumes de sa bibiothèque mais aussi (2) dans les marges des manuscrits de ses œuvres et surtout (3) de distinguer clairement entre les inscriptions allographes et autographes présentent dans les différents exemplaires des premières éditions des Dialogues. Elle est donc indispensable à l’éditeur de ses œuvres. Ces recherches codicologiques offrent ensuite un essai d’histoire et de classement des trois manuscrits connus des Dialogues – dont deux sont antérieurs à leur première édition. La seconde est dédiée à l’analyse bibliologique et historique des cinq premières éditions du texte : la 1ère partielle de 1631 (A), la 2nde édition complète de 1633 (B), la 1ère réédition partielle de 1671 (C), la 2nde réédition partielle de 1673 (D) et la 1ère réédition complète de 1716 (E). Ces recherches permettent en particulier d’identifier leur lieu et date d’impression respectif, ainsi que l’imprimeur de A et B ; et de préciser les relations génétiques de tous les témoins du texte des Dialogues.La troisième est consacrée au recensement, à l’analyse bibliologique et la collation systématiques des exemplaires connus des premières éditions. Les résultats de ces recherches sont (1) la détermination approximative des tirages de A et B ; (2) la découverte d’annotations autographes dans tous ces exemplaires et la distinction, en ce qui concerne B, de 22 exemplaires ordinaires et de 7 exemplaires spéciaux, ainsi que (3) l’identification d’un exemplaire dans lequel se trouve le plus grand nombre de corrections autographes et qui doit donc servir à ce titre de base à l’édition critique et à l’interprétation des Dialogues.La quatrième a pour objet les conditions historiques de la composition, de l’impression et de la réception immédiate des Dialogues, lesquelles doivent avant tout reposer sur la biographie de leur auteur, c’est-à-dire sur l’interprétation d’un certain nombre de données chronologiques relatives aux principaux événements de sa vie publique et privée. Sur la base de ce cadre biographique on s’est intéressé, pour limiter la subjectivité de l’interprétation du texte, à leur nature (pures fictions, transpositions littéraires ou transcriptions de dialogues réels), à leur objet (philosophie sceptique de l’auteur ou… Advisors/Committee Members: Moreau, Pierre-François (thesis director).

3. Strömquist, Helena. ”Med coleurt omslag” : färgade, dekorerade och tryckta omslag på svensk bokmarknad 1787-1846. En bokhistoria.

Degree: 2010, University of Lund

The aim of the dissertation is to examine the significance of the paperbound book on the book market as part of the history of consumption. It is an examination of the materiality of the book, in which the form and function, economics and distribution of the binding during the last century of the hand-press era are studied. The intention has been to show that the ready-bound book was a means for the actors on the book market to increase the sale of books in the decades around 1800, and that the ready-bound book as a product was an important component in the development of the book market towards a modern consumer market. Through the selling of ready-bound books the book change from being an intermediary good to a consumer good. The study is based on a text-sociological view of the book formulated by D. F. McKenzie (1986). The book circuit model put forward by Adams & Barker (1993) has been interpreted as a socio-economic explanation for the existence of the book. The changing conditions for publishing and the legal, cooperative and economic systems of production and distribution in Sweden are analysed and discussed to show how the binding became an essential element in the marketing of the book and how the publisher within this process became an independent actor on the book market. With the introduction of the printed wrapper the main functions of the title page, that is marketing and labelling was moved from the title page to the exterior of the book. The materiality of the paper bound book made it an efficient substrate and medium for text, colour and printed ornament. The coloured decorated and printed wrappers were the counterpart to the printed calicoes of peoples clothing and the wallpapers of the interiors that saw the light on the market at the time. Marketing through ornament, colour and content became keys to selling books. The study of contemporary book action catalogues shows that the paperbound book became a common commodity in libraries of the early 19th century. A material shift took place were the leatherbound book was replaced by the paperbound book. Paperbindings were affordable, functional, and aesthetically varied in comparison to other types of bindings. English summary 18 pp.
