Glossary

Rather than attempt to list dozens of technical terms about the history of manuscript production and its study, we’ll refer you directly to this invaluable resource -

http://www.bl.uk/catalogues/illuminatedmanuscripts/GlossB.asp

-the British Library Glossary of Illuminated Manuscripts.

For printing terms, Wikipedia has many scholarly articles on, for instance, "printing press", " typefaces", "incunabula" etc.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

A note on Recto & Verso
Recto is the term used for the right hand page of an open book, while Verso is the back of the leaf.
