Regarding handwriting: the National Archives' online paleography course covering handwriting between 1500 and 1800 looks very useful. It has been on my to do list for some time!

I think I tend to struggle with handwriting and signatures because I don’t do rare book cataloguing full time.  I think (I would hope?) that it would get a bit easier as I would be used to seeing different handwriting more often.  I have covered handwriting briefly in the course I took – but I think if I ever did this full time I would want to take a course on just the handwriting so I could really get it into my head – I would probably have more notes next to me.

Generally whenever we get a signature on a book we ask the opinion of anyone else in the office – because sometimes someone else seems to see what you don’t straight away!  Once it is pointed out it becomes obvious.

I looked at your suggestion Iris, and I could see it as much as I could see my own – I just wasn’t quite sure about either of our suggestions!

Thanks, Karen.

I was struggling with that inscription, too. Does anybody have any other suggestions for the inscription?

Here is my record 2.

I’m not very good on handwriting, so I have probably got the signature name wrong!

Please, start sending in your record 2 examples now but feel free to keep on commenting on record 1.

If you have any other practical cataloguing questions, please, submit them for discussion.

I think the records look pretty similar.

Those of you who don’t have a lot of rare books cataloguing experience, is there anything in the records that looks unusual to you? Or do you have any other questions or comments?

When I created my record I thought for this exercise I would include citations/references in the 510 in the format of the latest edition of the Standard Citation Forms for Rare Materials Cataloging (available free online: http://rbms.info/scf/ ) to see what it was like even though we actually still follow the previous version within the ESTC. What do you think? It’s probably clearer for users not necessarily familiar with these reference works as such but I must say it does take longer to input.
