Syriac bindings in the British Library - follow up
The post "A sense of detachment" has just been published over at the British Library Medieval manuscripts blog. The post contains some interesting information about the 18th-19th century practice of routinely rebinding newly-arrived manuscripts. Syriac codices and bindings are not explicitly mentioned, but the blog post confirms some of the information posted on this blog here.
