    Full Text Available La encuadernación es uno de los elementos históricos distintivos que favorecen la valoración cultural del libro antiguo como objeto patrimonial. El análisis de la encuadernación como un problema de conocimiento es una tarea pendiente en el terreno histórico mexicano. Ciertamente existen trabajos anteriores que muestran su valor cultural, pero son iniciativas inconclusas que han posibilitando la destrucción de numerosas encuadernaciones históricas por lo cual el mensaje del pasado queda mutilado. Este trabajo analiza las tendencias del estudio de la encuadernación en México y define su importancia como elemento patrimonial.Bookbinding is one of the distinctive historical elements which support cultural value of rare books as patrimonial objects. Analysis of bookbinding as a knowledge problem is a pending task in Mexican history, although there certainly are previous papers which show its cultural value. However those incomplete initiatives have allowed the destruction of many important bookbindings, a fact equivalent with the mutilation of the message from the past. Today’s tendencies on bookbinding study in Mexico are analyzed and its importance as a patrimonial element is defined.

    2009-07-01

    A career in health education or health promotion (HE/HP) can be developed in many ways. In past editions of this department, career development has been discussed in relation to distance (Balonna, 2001), consulting (Bookbinder, 2001), certifications (Hayden, 2005), graduate school (Cottrell & Hayden, 2007), and many other topics. This article looks at a less traditional means of career development-entrepreneurship. Health education is a field ripe with opportunities for consulting and for selling health-related products and services. Entrepreneurship can not only create financial rewards but can also provide high visibility and networking contacts that can advance one's career. This article combines both theory and practical applications to assist readers in developing entrepreneurial activities. The authors are experienced in entrepreneurial development and use that expertise to provide relevant examples and develop a framework using "five cardinal rules" for establishing an entrepreneurial enterprise in HE/HP.

    Full Text Available A main mutual characteristic of decorative arts of Islamic states is the general resemblence of motifs which form the patterns and used in decorations. This view is strengthened by the implication of those motifs which are performed in different sizes and on different materials from arcitechture to textile, from manuscripts to wood decoration from small handcraft to common tools in the general frame of Turkish-Islamic culture. It is known that with taking over their artistic traditions from Timurs,Karakoyunlu and Akkoyunlu, Turkomen have great contributions to the development of book arts (bookbinding, ornemantation, miniature. By their artists, Turkomen dynasties contributed this development by carrying their styles of bookwork and also architecture to Iran and Anatolia where they had spread. The resemblence in the rockworks of the period's architecture in Diyarbakır, which was once a capital of Akkoyunlu, and the ornoments on the book covers is in a remarkable characteristic. Apart from mutual perception seen in decorative arts in general sense those resemblences are the same in designing, not in motifs base. The performing of the cover designings which are commonly seen şemseli salbeki on ornemantations of Safa Parlı mosque's niche, pulpit and minarets points out that book ornamentation designings can be a source to architectural ornemantations.

    Work at SAO was performed under the overall direction of Dr. Harvey Tananbaum, the Principal Investigator for the program. Dr. Jay Bookbinder was responsible for day to day program coordination at SAO and liaison with GSFC. Dr. Nicholas E. White served as GSFC Technical Officer for the Grant. The effort was directed at formulating the general characteristics and scientific requirements of the contemplated mission. While funding and therefore effort was limited, nonetheless SAO was involved in a broad range of activities. These activities were defined by our SAO proposal to GSFC that were subsequently accepted and funded by this Grant. The main activities were: Support of mission studies. Support the development of science requirements. and Performance of selected engineering studies and trades. During this period, an integrated GSFC/SAO management team began to form and work together. Jean F. Grady was appointed Project Formulation Manager at GSFC and assumed the overall management direction of the project including coordination of work performed under the grant.

Combined with a modest X-ray mirror, this instrument would combine arcsecondscale imaging with high-resolution spectra over a field of view sufficiently large for the study of active regions and flares, enabling a wide range of studies such as the detection of microheating in active regions, ion-resolved velocity flows, and the presence of non-thermal electrons in hot plasmas. It would also enable more direct comparisons between solar and stellar soft X-ray spectra, a waveband in which (unusually) we currently have much b...

    Full Text Available In order to introduce future teachers to project teaching and raise awareness of its correlation with teaching practices, as well as link linguistic communication with artistic areas in accordance with NCC, the project “Let’s play Lapitch” was designed within the celebration of the centennial of the novel “The Brave Adventures of Lapitch” by Ivana Brlić Mažuranić. Students became acquainted with the literary-theoretical characteristics of the novel and independently performed a transformation of the narrative into the illustrated form. An intimate visual communication of the students with the literary text was based on the hard book cover, introducing them to the artistic discipline of bookbinding. The creative process included an interpretation of the literary text within the fi eld of a new medium – the artistic book required visual and narrative coherence, which created a strong link between the courses Children’s literature and Extracurricular art activities. The goal of the project was methodically designed to bring together the teachers, the students and the pupils with the aim of analyzing the reception of the novel and expanding their experience. The project intertwined different areas of studying the mother tongue (language, literature, language expression, but it also included a practical realization in the classroom, which is the main point of teacher education. Finally, the project was concluded by a joint public presentation of the works made by the students and the elementary school pupils at the Museum of Lika in Gospić, which enabled the evaluation of the project. Project “Let’s play Lapitch” confi rmed the independent research of the students and the pupils, the exchange of ideas and collaborative forms of work, and also encouraged cooperation between educational institutions in the city.

    In the United States, National Chemistry Week is November 7-13. (For more NCW information, go to http://www.acs.org/ncw/.) NCW's theme, celebrating polymers, is echoed in this issue (pages 1497-1501, 1512-1513, 1521-1540). Almost certainly there will be chemists in your area spending a great deal of their time on outreach activities for children and the general public during NCW. Chances are good that many Journal readers like you will be among them. And there are probably many more outreach programs that you or your acquaintances lead during the rest of the year. This month of NCW seems an appropriate time to reflect on the tremendous benefits that outreach programs provide. Early examples of outreach involved books, public lectures, and chemical demonstrations. In 1800 Count Rumford collaborated with influential Londoners to establish the Royal Institution as a means of providing lectures on science and technology to help working people to improve their lot. Humphry Davy, Michael Faraday, and many others continued the tradition. Faraday's own interest in science was sparked in part by Jane Marcet's book Conversations in Chemistry, whose friendly style made its contents accessible and fascinating to the young, highly intelligent bookbinder's apprentice. In the United States, Benjamin Silliman, first professor of chemistry at Yale, became widely known for his textbooks on geology and chemistry and for his ability as a popular lecturer. Silliman's lecture tours took him as far from New Haven as St. Louis and New Orleans. By the mid-1800s societies for the advancement of science and of chemistry were being set up in Europe. In 1876 American chemists who gathered at Priestley's grave in Northumberland, Pennsylvania, to commemorate the centennial of the discovery of oxygen saw the need for a permanent organization and founded the American Chemical Society. By the beginning of the 20th century these societies were supporting education and public awareness of science

    geographically, but it it makes it possible to draw up a relatively clear picture of the bookkeepings written by the archiepiscopal administration and its evolution in this part of medieval Languedoc. The support is always paper and under examination (in particular the watermarks similarities with Italian examples are brought to light. Even if bookbindings sometimes cut the original format, depriving us of a lot of mentions or footnotes, documents are generally well preserved. The often carefully prepared layout reveals that they are technical documents without any splendor. It’s difficult to identify if they were working documents or copies examined by accounting auditors, because they are partially overloaded with notes from different hands which can make them really illegible.Die Buchungschrift der Landvögten der Erzbischöfe von Narbonne Bernard de Fargues (1311-1341und Gaubert du Val (1341-1347 -Die Zerstörung der Quasi-Ganzheit der erzbischöflichen Quellen in Narbonne macht die bewahrten originalen Fragmente wertvoller.

Die Quasi-Ganzheit stellt sich aus den Buchführungen zusammen, die von Landvögten aufgestellt sind. Diese Vertretern des Erzbischofs sind mit der örtlichen Verwaltung von Teil der Lehnsherrshaft belastet. Dieses Korpus ist sicher chronologisch und geographisch sehr lückenhaft.
