So I looked up the emails to find the link to their review thingy.
Surprise: I find in an unopened email dated 11 Sep, which I had thought was a reminder, the note:
"Thank you for reviewing the above referenced #manuscript. With your help, I have reached an accept decision"
A quiet #Vatican #Manuscript week with only 33 digitized
Includes a early work on Polyphony, a copy of Pliny made for Ferdinand and Isabella's son, some more 19th C Russian liturgy, and the triumphal return of Henry Stevenson, Jr.

I have no stream/creek to write about during the last several days - sad😥
But our manuscript got accepted, a bit of happy moment which does not last long…🤔
I also know that spending time (fishing etc…) in a creek provides me a happy moment, but it also does not last long…like a Chinese saying: if you want to be happy for a day, go fishing…🤔
BUT…although it is impossible to get my manuscript accepted every day, it is feasible to fish every day🤩

PSA: I am proud to announce that I am almost finished rewriting/editing my manuscript for republishing!
It is a romance poetry book titled Tranquility.
I will be posting separately for the synopsis and all the other details (such as when it will be published)!
Take care and happy reading! :)
Among some of the Swedish National Archives recently digitised documents is this Life of St Elizabeth of Hungary.
It begins with "Dyt is dat leuent det hilghen vrouwen sunte elseben van erer eddelen gebord..."
Sounds very Dutch to me!?

Petite pensée pour tous les agrégatifs - toutes disciplines confondues, mais je pense surtout à celles et ceux qui préparent l'agrégation d'anglais, pour qui je travaille activement ces jours-ci.
Nous tâchons de vous préparer des outils intéressants et efficaces (et bientôt disponibles !) pour étudier comme il se doit Sir Gawain and the Green Knight et le film de David Lowery.
Bon courage, et enjoy!

Turned a #manuscript draft into a colleague today for review. I am proud of it, but it's probably not up to par or something. It's hard to be excited when one constantly hears the old "Reviewer # 2" joke. 😵💫
Some things never change... like your cat walking all over your desktop completely unfazed while you're trying to write down important things.
Came across this in a folder on my computer and was chuckling about it again... this was doodling someone did in a big manuscript of pre-WWI #klezmer music collected by Zusman Kiselhof on the An-Sky expedition ... in my mind it was some kind of bored assistant in his office but who knows!
I came across it in 2021 while digitizing the music manuscripts for this project:

Some rather racy depictions of the Lotus Tree from 1602 and 1614.
Those who eat from the Lotus Tree forget their homes and their lives. They sit and eat and sleep.

One of the best things about running a small lab is submitting a #manuscript, even in the summer, when no one will be around to review it 🤓

What's under the umbrella? Well, #newshistory, journalism from handwritten to printed to digital news, #maphistory, visual mapmaking by humans on whatever material, global #printinghistory, #manuscript usages, a trade focus on book flows, a reading history, and much more about communication flows and infrastructure usages with "books" of all formats and materials. Basically, #bookhistory is an overextension of many fields and approaches dealing with past communication flows and artifacts.
Scotland’s 16th-century Sappho
8 July, Edinburgh – pay what you can
The #16thCentury Maitland #manuscript is a remarkable collection of #Scots #poetry, & includes one of the earliest surviving instances of #lesbian #love poetry in any European language since #Sappho of Lesbos.
Ashley Douglas discusses her research into the female-authored poetry in the Maitland manuscript & Scotland’s Sappho: Marie Maitland.
"Dot and Lindsey sit down with Yvonne Seale and Heather Wacha to talk about Soissons, Bibliothèque municipale, 0007, aka the #Cartulary of Prémontré. Prémontré was the parent house of the #Premonstratensian Order, an the cartulary contains legal documents related to the house and its holdings. In our conversation we talked about the house itself, people and events mentioned in the documents, and how the cartulary was written (and how it was changed later)."
In 2018 #SantaClara County gave a local politician's wife a million dollars to write the history of the "#SiliconValley" county in a no bid contract, and instead of hiring #historians, she delivered a #manuscript 2 yrs overdue with large portions cut & pasted off #wikipedia etc. The county has since dropped all legal proceedings, and has said she can now just keep the money?
I've pooled together a lot of notes on how to nicely format papers in latex, and wrote a template for an author manuscript, without any obscure latex class and plenty of comments.
There is no branding, so it's suitable for publishing on #openscience platforms too!

This is the reason why libraries put massive stamps on gorgeous initials in #medieval books.
This initial L, with its accompanying letter i, has been cut out of an 8th-century #manuscript - probably by a collector or a thief looking to re-sell it.
Het stikt van de jonge muzikanten die veelal op een rockacademie zitten of er net vanaf zijn. Er is veel aandacht voor die jonge muzikanten en opvallend weinig aandacht voor oudere muzikanten zoals ikzelf.
My first book will be coming out with Cornell University Press next year. It's titled "Poet-Monks: The Invention of Buddhist Poetry in Late Medieval China." There's finally a webpage for it, so it feels "real" enough to announce.
Cover art (and much more!) to come soon.

For all you #history nerds out there…my inspiration was the Mira Calligraphiae Monumenta https://www.getty.edu/art/collection/object/105TJN
It was a fun challenge to update the style for its purpose & scale. My piece is about 30x18 inches.

So that's how #beehives are made! All those in this shape? or are other materials used too?
Can't resist adding one of my favourite #medieval #manuscript depictions of #bees - would these hives be made of #liana?

If anybody's looking for good gift ideas for me, you could do way worse than this original 1971 Hunter S. Thompson #manuscript:
"Centuries-old books, manuscripts and printing plates often contain invisible etchings, mysterious letters – and even doodles. A new technology that maps the surface of these objects is bringing them to light."
Good advice for anyone dealing with the #rejection of a #manuscript.
"Five lessons to be learned from rejected manuscripts…: (1) rejections teach journal scope, (2) rejections teach process, (3) rejection should lead to resubmission, (4) rejections reflect writing effort, and (5) rejections happen to papers, not authors."
“The manuscript also contains Stevenson’s edits, in some places quite extensive […] Stevenson complicates the distinction between the two poles that Jekyll and Hyde are supposed to represent, emphasizing the difficulty of telling one from another, or keeping them apart.”
—New York’s Morgan Library has placed the scanned handwritten #manuscript of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde online
T. Hodgson, Specimen of Penmanship, manuscript, 1864. Writing books from the 17–19th centuries are among the 1,000+ items added to our Online Archive in 2022. See them all: https://oa.letterformarchive.org/search?dims=Discipline&vals0=Calligraphy&friendly0=Calligraphy

Attention #writers and #novelists I created this tutorial on setting up your #novel #manuscript in MS Word. This method allows you to quickly & easily change formats to the specifications of various agents/acquisitions editors. It will save you loads of time in the long run, and it also makes your manuscript much easier to navigate. I hope you find it helpful!
Redirected account here, so I thought I would re-share a few things I made this year:
- #brushtrajans for the Friends of Calligraphy thank you cards
- A fun bird #illustration and #script with #flourish interactions
- #engrossersScript alphabet sample
- #illumination D copied from #medieval #manuscript MS Hunter 229
Unloading camels in the fascinating Ashburnham Pentateuch, perhaps made in late 6th-/early 7th-century Rome: https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b53019392c/f51.image #Camels #Roman #History #Manuscript
I wrote a tutorial on formatting your novel #manuscript in Word. This is especially useful if you're submitting to agents/editors as it allows you to quickly reformat the entire document to their specifications. Once you set this up, you can use it over and over with every novel you write.
My personal research is largely concerned with reconstructing the worldviews and practices of historical magicians, alchemists, astrologers, and other occultists, based upon the study of their #manuscript writings and other primary source documents.

All this and more is #bookhistory nowadays: #newshistory, journalism from handwritten to printed to digital news transmission, #maphistory, visual mapmaking by humans on whatever material, #printinghistory, using global printing technologies, #manuscript usages ...(and more). Too much, isn't it? Remember the riot reference?
