I have a new piece up at The Collation, the Folger Shakespeare Library's research blog, about a heavily used, read, and damaged sammelband of eight late seventeenth-century play quartos. If you're interested at all in bindings, collection practices, traces of early reading (play-reading specifically), female readers, and/or ciphers (yes, ciphers!), then this might be worth a read. I have more questions about the book than I do answers, so I'd be grateful for your reactions, ideas, or suggestions (either here or over on The Collation).
