From One Page to the Next: Catchwords in Manuscripts and Printed Books from the Sixteenth to the Nineteenth Centuries is a rare study into a fascinating characteristic of antiquarian books, the catchword. Brazilian researcher, Elizangela Dias is meticulous in her theoretical and methodological exploration of these small fragments of words and phrases, found at the end of a page and repeated at the beginning of another. Her remarkable findings give us a better understanding of the materials of book production. The reader has before them a key contribution to philology and studies of the history of written culture.
