"Digitised collections of Greek and Hebrew manuscripts and early printed books to be made available free online" - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"The Oxford University and Vatican libraries are to jointly digitise 1.5m pages of ancient texts and make them available free online. The libraries said the digitised collections will centre on three subject areas: Greek manuscripts, 15th-century printed books and Hebrew manuscripts and early printed books. The areas have been chosen for the strength of the collections in both libraries and their importance for scholarship in their respective fields." - Maitani
"With approximately two-thirds of the material coming from the Vatican and the remainder from Oxford University's Bodleian libraries, the digitisation effort will also benefit scholars by uniting materials that have been dispersed between the collections for centuries." - Maitani
I have no idea. Are you particularly interested in them? - Maitani
It is. :-) I'm just looking them up on Wikipedia. Wonderful. And the etymology of the word is nice, too. - Maitani
Printing techniques were invented/applied in order to make it easier to produce copies of books, and in larger numbers. How can you distinguish a pirated copy from a "legal" one? - Maitani
This chronicle is so awesome. -) - Maitani
