Die Anfertigung von Durchreibungen der auf Bucheinbänden in verschiedenen Techniken geprägter Stempel, Rollen und Platten ist ein bewährtes Hilfsmittel bei der Erforschung von Bucheinbänden. Ein Blatt Papier wird auf den Buchdeckel gelegt und mit Hilfe eines Bleistiftes werden die Motive auf das Papier übertragen. So entsteht eine maßstabsgetreue Wiedergabe des Motivs, frei von eventuellen Schattierungen und möglichen Verzerrungen.

While CERL is working towards the full integration of IPI data into the CERL Thesaurus, this full-text search has been made available. Contents: IPI contains some 32,000 entries of personal names, institutional names, monograms, and arms pertaining to the ownership of incunabula. They were extracted by Paul Needham from some 200 published catalogues of incunabula with provenance information, augmented with information from his personal research, and placed in a word file of some 1,267 pages or 500,565 words.
MEI is a database specifically designed to record and search the material evidence (or copy specific, post-production evidence and provenance information) of 15th-century printed books: ownership, decoration, binding, manuscript annotations, stamps, prices, etc. MEI is linked to the Incunabula Short Title Catalogue (ISTC) , provided by the British Library, from which it derives the bibliographical records, and it allows the user at last to combine searches of bibliographical records (extracted from ISTC) with copyspecific records. Uniquely, every element recorded (a certain style of decoration or binding, a manuscript note, etc.) is treated as a valuable clue for provenance, therefore it can be geographically located and chronologically dated.
