GARCIA, Idalia. Among pages of rare books: material bibliographical description in Mexico. Investig. bibl [online]. 2008, vol.22, n.45, pp.13-40. ISSN 2448-8321.

The cultural value of rare books is reflected in its bibliographical description, which is one way of representing a book as a patrimonial object. However such task requires awareness of the material nature and of the particular forms of production which characterize these books. Thus adequate bibliographical representation is a manner of assessing a rare book and leads us to a better understanding of our cultural legacy. This paper helps us to comprehend why the characteristics of descriptive bibliography aid to build the representation of patrimonial value through recuperation of a bibliographical description model which allows to delineate the textual and historical values of rare books as instruments of study and patrimonial control.
