This volume contains articles of relevance for books, manuscripts and libraries, for example new acquisitions in the National and University Library of Iceland, Icelandic manuscripts in the British Library, types of medieval bindings in the University Library of Uppsala and marks of previous ownership on books in the Royal Library in Copenhagen, a digital exhibition resulting from the great theft of books from the library that has been described in Care and conservation 9, on the binding structures of medieval Armenian manuscripts, and on a method employed for the examination of the tools used in the cover decoration of Byzantine manuscripts. There are also articles on plaited silk strings found on medieval documents, on vegetable dyes in English medieval manuscripts, on paper manufacture in Denmark in the 17th century, and on traditional methods of paper production in Nepal.
