Marginalia: In the 18th & 19th centuries it was the custom to write in the margins of books

Marginalia: In the 18th & 19th centuries it was the custom to write in the margins of books | e-Marginalia | Scoop.it

Most of us have written in the margins of books, especially in our own textbooks when cramming for an exam or writing a paper, but how many of us write notes in expensive hardcovers that we treasure? These days writing inside books is heavily discouraged and frowned upon, but it was once a common practice, one that has pleased many a historian and bibliophile. Imagine coming across a dusty old book at a yard sale and finding the notes and scribblings of a famous person inside of it. Imagine the joy you would feel to come across such a connection!

'Virile, if Somewhat Irresponsible' Design: The Marginalia of the Gorleston Psalter

'Virile, if Somewhat Irresponsible' Design: The Marginalia of the Gorleston Psalter | e-Marginalia | Scoop.it

Lovely blog post (first of two) on the spectacular Gorleston Psalter (Add MS 49622), notable for its marginal grotesques.  The full Psalter has been digitised, see: http://www.bl.uk/manuscripts/FullDisplay.aspx?ref=Add_MS_49622&index=0 

 

Go on, lose an afternoon or two to browsing it!  My favourite is the rabbit playing bagpipes (f. 192r).

The Art of Marginalia

The Art of Marginalia | e-Marginalia | Scoop.it
Finding a book with personal notes that someone has scribbled in the margins feels like a gift. It increases the value of the book, in my opinion. These notes have changed the book from its original state into a diary of sorts.
