Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0712346872, Hardcover)The late medieval manuscript's opening page was often magnificent in its ornamentation, but the logistics of book printing demanded a new development - the inclusion of a page devoted to its title. Several stages of the title-page's development are described in detail here, with illustrations from the British Library: the blank page; the label-title; the label-title-plus-woodcut and/or printer's mark; and the decorative border.
