KRISTIAN JENSEN: Provenance Research: Managing Cultural Property.

In recent years book historians have focused much more on provenance research. We have also seen an increasing awareness that public institutions manage cultural property of interest to groups who do not come from a book history background. This has led to significant amounts of provenance research being done in libraries around Europe, but often the two strands of provenance research do not meet. This paper will outline some of the work done on the provenance of books as part of cultural property management, and some of the issues around using it for book history research.
