CFP for a session in the 56 Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, Venice, Italy, 8-10 April 2010.
This CFP focuses on the printing of Greek medicine in Venice, specifically the search, production, circulation, and collection of books in the milieu of scholars and printers. Papers should be devoted to the collections from which the manuscripts used by printers came, the networks through which they were obtained, possibly also the commission from which they resulted or the programs of which they were a part, so as to widen the perspective and to contribute to a reconstruction of the whole milieu at the origin of these editions: the scholars, their collections, their contacts, the copyists working for them and sometimes with them, their programmes and their attempts to compensate for the lacunas of the text availability, and any other element that contributed to the printing of Greek medicine in Venice.
