Abstract:At the time old books enjoyed special moral appreciation, they were transmitted from one generation to another and represented a spatial and a temporal bridge among people. The examination of notes written over the time on books highlights that their most frequent protection was of spiritual nature, namely the curse, as they were expensive, written with efforts or gained in exchange of great sums of money. The imprecation was often targeted towards the inappropriate possession of books: the tear and the theft of the metal and precious stoned engraved bindings, the tearing off of their pages or even the ugly handwriting on their margins. The notes help the researchers find out the categories of rogues which appropriated the books or only their beautiful ornaments. Knowing well the basic law principles, the authors of the notes made the distinction between the simple deed, done on a foolish impulse, and the deed done on a purpose.
