The IRA may have gone underground in the two decades since the Good Friday Agreement, but they never really went away, and lately bomb threats, security checkpoints, and helicopters floating ominously over the city have become features of everyday life.
As the news reporter requests the public's help in locating those responsible for the robbery, security footage reveals Tessa's sister, Marian, pulling a black ski mask over her face. The police believe Marian has joined the IRA, but Tessa is convinced she must have been abducted or coerced; the sisters have always opposed the violence enacted in the name of uniting Ireland.
And besides, Marian is vacationing on the north coast. Tessa just spoke to her yesterday. When the truth about Marian comes to light, Tessa is faced with impossible choices that will test the limits of her ideals, the bonds of her family, her notions of right and wrong, and her identity as a sister and a mother.
Walking an increasingly perilous road, she wants nothing more than to protect the one person she loves more fiercely than her sister: her infant son, Finn. Riveting, atmospheric, and exquisitely written, Northern Spy is at once a heart-pounding story of the contemporary IRA and a moving portrait of sister- and motherhood, and of life in a deeply divided society.

It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present. Getting back to the main topic of why she was here to visit her master, Shalltear informs Ainz that she will be meeting up with Sebas Tian afterward in order to fulfill the task set out for her. Since she may not be able to return to Nazarick for some time, Shalltear wanted to go out of her way and bid farewell to her master before she leaves to do her mission to capture talented Martial Arts ' users.
While Ainz was masquerading as an adventurer, Shalltear is given the task of accompanying Sebas and Solution and enslaving any criminals who knew Martial Arts or magic. Shalltear converses with Sebas on their journey, explaining to the butler the reason why she and Aura have a complex relationship built around their creators. She recalls the times when several Supreme Beings made their rounds on her floors. Along the way, Shalltear expresses great interest in uncovering the mystery of the 8th Floor and ponder what sort of powerful beings resides on that location.
She and Sebas discussed about the possibility of deathtraps hidden on the 8th Floor that indiscriminately kills anyone who enters it. Meanwhile, she informs Sebas and corrected his misconception about Bukubukuchagama 's power as a seiyuu. On the other hand, she allows Solution Epsilon permission to have Zach before their carriage ride comes to an end. When the conversation turns toward her missionSebas' remark that Demiurge or Aura would have been a better candidate immediately causes Shalltear to enter a fit of rage about it.
She threatens him with the prospect of a death battle, but slowly cools down when he apologizes. She holds reservations about the possibility of losing control from her Blood Frenzy, but still resolves to complete her mission without fail in the hopes of obtaining Ainz's praises. At this point, the carriage suddenly stops and they are surrounded by a group of bandits much to her delight. Seeing that the men prove to be no challenge for the NPCs and not what she was looking for whatsoever, Shalltear and her Vampire Brides waste no time in slaughtering them.
The last man Shalltear left alive from the group of bandits to not be killed was their leader, who she forced into submission out of terror and fear. Shortly thereafter, she had order her Vampire Brides to turn the leader into a Lesser Vampire and then engaged in a brief discussion with Solution about how the slime maid handles the fate of Zach.
Having already found out where the bandits' hideout is at, she soon parted ways with the group of two now being Sebas and Solution to invade it. While entering the nearby forest where potentially more people could be, they came across a Bear Trap that put a halt to one of the Vampire Brides from carrying and transporting Shalltear to the enemy hideout.
After removing the trap and briefly interrogating the Lesser Vampire about how close they are to the hideout, she and her Vampire Brides resume their movement and eventually come across their intended destination. There, Shalltear and her Vampire Brides proceed to engage in a frontal assault with the bandits, throwing the Lesser Vampire as a long-range strike at one of their enemy sentries to initiate the start of the battle much to her amusement. She proceeds to have the Vampire Brides pick up a random rock on the ground and hand it to her to throw at the enemy sentries once more until they were finally alarm of their presence.
She commands one of her two Vampire Brides to keep watch on top of a tree and make sure nobody escape while the other one is given the order to act as her vanguard, luring out and engaging any foe in combat who is stronger than the bandits they killed.
Trying to fill up her Blood Pool without much success, Shalltear soon comes across Brain Unglauswho confidently meets with them alone. Feeling playful, she decides to toy with the mercenary on several occasions during the battle between the two, allowing him the chance to attack her fearlessly. Throughout the battle, she doesn't even bother to attack back in retaliation against Brain or evade his strikes but Fall Victim - Alkaline Trio - Crimson (CD) enough, provoke the latter to try harder with each attempt of striking her down.
When Shalltear effortlessly deflect and parry all of Brain's attacks, he had a mental breakdown from realizing every skill he used on the vampire were powerless to defeat her. As Brain runs away in fear for his life, Shalltear leisurely gives chase after the warrior, following him to the mercenary's main hideout while believing it is a game of tag. When she came across a huge number of prey in front of her, she realizes her game of tag came to an end and that the next game which is hide and seek was about to begin with her next preys.
Seeing and imagining all this, she begins to lose control of herself while Blood Frenzy activates and override her thought process. Hence, she transforms into her True Vampire form and engage the remaining bandits in combat, toying with their lives and draining them of blood much to her pleasure.
In the end, although they tried to put up a fight against Shalltear, she ended up easily and thoughtlessly wiping out the entire base without question, leaving no one alive except her and the Vampire Brides afterward.
After annihilating them and slowly coming back to her senses, Shalltear frustratingly realizes that Brain has escaped through a tunnel exit that was not known to her by the Lesser Vampire.
Her Vampire Brides inform Shalltear that there is an unknown group approaching them. With the murderous impulse to spill more blood because of [Blood Frenzy], she confronts the group and slaughter every one of them in her true form once again until the last of them remain standing. Shalltear left only one alive, after being slightly damaged by the potion that was thrown at her.
Knowing that potion was commonly used back in the tomb, she was curious what that woman's relation to Nazarick is, having decided to spare her unharmed and then mind-control her for interrogation. Shalltear asks the female adventurer her name and to question her on how she was able to obtain Fall Victim - Alkaline Trio - Crimson (CD) potion. After being questioned about the team she is part of and figuring out her master's connections with the woman, Shalltear immediately summons the Vampire Wolf to hunt down the two humans a ranger from Brita's group and Brain in the forest that she let escape accidentally.
When the Vampire Brides report to her that they found several women in the interior, she decided to leave them be with Brita. Shortly thereafter, Shalltear senses that her familiars were killed in action. Sensing their deaths, she quickly moves to the location where it was supposedly slain at. Shalltear arrives and encounters a new group that she quickly notices are much stronger than the previous one. After deciding what her next course of action will be which is to capture them in order to make up for her previous mistakes, Shalltear attempts to carry out her new objective.
Despite springing into action, Shalltear realizes she made a fatal mistake, as the former was soon hit by a dangerous power that thwarts her attack for just a moment.
Unable to stop it on time, she retaliates back with a powerful attack of her own that hits two of its members before everything else goes dark on her end. Shalltear became consciously awoke to find herself attack by Ainz's super-tier spell, feeling utterly confused and lost on having the mindset to kill him despite the latter being her master.
However, knowing that she sustain damage from Ainz, Shalltear considers her former master an enemy that needs to be slain by her own hands. Although she had no idea why she had to oppose her beloved master, her mind told her that it was not an important question to mull over.
To Shallear, all she had to do was kill him and then ponder the matter at length afterward. During that battle, she even poke fun and mockery at Ainz that her creator Peroroncino was superior than him. She couldn't help but feel sorry for her master being at a disadvantage such as his summons being useless against her power and not having the same level of equipment as her. Nonetheless, despite being brainwashed, Shalltear still show a degree of admiration and respect towards Ainz and his abilities for at least trying to put up a fight against her without holding back.
Over the course of the battle the death battle between the two, she and her master kept exchanging blows at each other with tier spells but to a greater extent, where she also landed attacks on him with her skills. Throughout the battle, she had depleted all her MP and use up all her skills in order to drain Ainz's MP close to zero.
Shalltear realizes that although Ainz has almost no more mana points left, she is somewhat irritated and annoyed at his calm behavior when he's on the verge of dying and struggling to combat her. However, Shalltear's sense of unease and frustration grew further when she learn from her former master that he had been controlling the flow of their battle from the very beginning.
Knowing that the tables are turned on her by Ainz with his guild members' equipment, including her creator's weapon, Shalltear keeps fighting to the death until the bitter end. At last, she was finally killed by Ainz's super-tier spell, Fallen Down. Once she woke up naked, Shalltear was no longer under the mind control of their enemy's World Item and was devastated to discover her breast pads were gone.
Despite being resurrected to life, she doesn't seem to remember what happened and continues her duties in Nazarick. Shalltear was informed by Demiurge about what she had done to her master Ainz while under a mind-control state by the unknown user of the World Item. During a meeting with the Floor Guardians, a productive conversation of fringe benefits dissolves into a fierce war of words between Shalltear and Albedo over their love for Ainz, prompting their master to dismiss the meeting.
Shalltear wanders around the 10th Floor moaning about how she was scolded by Ainz. At the same time, she notices someone in the Great Library of Ashurbanipal. She sees Albedo suspiciously going through several books, before gleefully selecting one, overhearing how it will bring her closer to Ainz. Shalltear begins to do a thorough investigation and learns from one of the Homunculus Maids that Albedo is trying to put together a play production.
One play, in particular, Romeo and Juliet. However, she finds out that Albedo has designated herself as Juliet and Ainz as Romeo in a plot to steal a kiss from him in the final scene. She brings this knowledge to Ainz's attention and demands that a fair selection be made amongst the Floor Guardians.
Demiurge, who was also informed by Shalltear, also agrees to her proposal. Three days before the auditions, she catches Albedo manipulating Ainz to allow her to kiss him to 'help' her in her acting skills. The two women begin to bicker, infuriating the Overlord at their immaturity, causing him to leave thereafter. Despite earning Ainz's scorn yet again, Shalltear is confident that she will win. Two days later, it is revealed that Shalltear had approached Aura to vote for her, in exchange for Kal Kan.
Later on, she approaches Cocytus and tries to win his vote by offering him the role of Tybalt, but is furiously rebuked. On the day of the audition, Shalltear is the first to perform. Using a pillow in the likeness of Ainz, she notices something has been smeared on the lips of the duplicate. Suspecting it to be poison put there by Albedo, Shalltear continues her performance, confident that her racial immunity will leave her immune. When the performances are done, the votes are in and the results happen to bemaking the competition a draw.
It's revealed that Demiurge subtly manipulated the voting process to ensure that neither would win as it would damage the two's relationship in the future. After it's revealed that both Shalltear and Albedo bribed one of the judges, both of them are disqualified. After her rebellion and revival, Shalltear, along with the other Floor Guardians, are ordered to fight together against Zy'tl Q'ae and to secure the herb and to complete Ainz's adventurer quest from Pluton Ainzach.
Feeling a sense of guilt still about raising her weapon against Ainz, she pays a visit to the 9th Floor. There, Shalltear found herself in Sous-chef 's bar which she rarely go to. However, at the bar, she is in a state of depression about her rebellion against Ainz. Shalltear was given a drink called "Maiden's Tears" which Sous-chef made up to quell Shalltear's sadness. When asked what's wrong by the Sous-chef, Shalltear initially refuses to talk about the reason why she is depressed.
Feeling supposedly drunk to her, Shalltear was later greeted by Eclair Ecleir Eicler who ask the former what made her become deeply heartbroken and dejected. Shalltear informs Eclair that she made a terrible mistake and had chosen to visit the bar where she can drown her sorrows in drink. In the hopes of trying to change her gloomy mood and cheer her up, Shalltear was offer a glass of apple juice that was made with apples harvested on the 6th Floor.
After taking a sip, Shalltear listen to the news of there being more future residents inside Nazarick much to her displeasure. She was displeased to hear that they get to freely roam Nazarick's lairs built by the 41 Supreme Beings. Learning that it was her master Ainz's decision to allow them free passage into Nazarick, Shalltear loudly proclaim of not wanting to defy his wishes because of her feelings. When Eclair tried recruiting Shalltear to work under him after already being aware of the vampire's betrayal to Ainz, she shriek at the thought of ever pledging loyalty to it than her master.
After Cocytus lost the war against the lizardmenShalltear attended a meeting with the rest of her fellow Floor Guardians about his defeat.
Before the meeting began though, Shalltear was introduced to the 9th Floor Guardian, Victim by Demiurge. During the meeting, she pleaded Ainz to hand down punishment to her, begging her master that she cannot allow her own sinful actions of causing harm to him go unpunished.
Even after learning that she had been mind controlled, Shalltear still cannot forgive herself for turning her lance on Ainz. Feeling overwhelmed by Ainz's show of kindness despite her betrayal, she broke down into tears seeing her master go to great lengths in order to console her which the latter wipe it out with a white handkerchief. She also appears flabbergasted by hearing Ainz said that he loved her, erasing the former's unease and fear that the latter will abandon her due to her disloyalty.
Shalltear was comforted by her master to not dwell on the thought any longer, promising the former that she will be given the punishment she adamantly wants. Agreeing with Albedo's words that a punishment is in order, she wishes to have it be carry out for her own sake, hoping the chance to finally express and renew her loyalty. Shalltear, along with the other Floor Guardians, were present during the gathering of Nazarick's forces led by Ainz who threatens and intimidate the lizardmen so that they'll become part of Nazarick.
In order to atone for her treacherous rebellion, Shalltear had no other choice but to become his chair to sit on. Heeding Ainz's order, Shalltear got on her hands and knees while kneeling down and having her head lowered.
While Ainz was being seated and mounted on top of Shalltear, she can't help but seemingly view this punishment as a reward to her. As Ainz continues on discussing and conversing with the rest of the Floor Guardians, Shalltear would silently squirm, moan, and pant in pleasure at the sight of having her master dominate her position.
On the 1st Floor, Hamsuke ends up getting lost while doing her mission. As a result, she is now trying to find her way back to the 6th Floor. As several of Shalltear's undead try to approach her, the hamster panics, running deeper into the tomb. Learning about it from her undead underlings, Shalltear reports back to Ainz concerning Hamsuke's whereabouts.
When Shalltear begins to bicker with Albedo, Ainz decides to have the two paired up together to find Hamsuke, but also with the intention of improving their relationship. In the end, Shalltear and Albedo manage to finally find Hamsuke on the 2nd Floor, but alongside Aura and Mare who already reached her before the two arrived. Despite Shalltear's excitement at finding Hamsuke, she is actually shocked to see an insect on top of the hamster's head and intimidates the beast not to get anywhere near her.
After finishing her task, she and her fellow female Floor Guardians later go to Spa Resort Nazarick to relax. During their stay there, both Shalltear and Albedo converse with each other on the topic concerning their chest sizes respectively which brings forth a new conflict to ensue. Among the trio consisting of Albedo and Aura, Shalltear takes a break from her role as a Floor Guardian under Ainz's orders and is willing to spend time elsewhere with them on the 6th Floor.
She was present to see Albedo showcase her summoning of her Bicorn while the latter explains its abilities. When Aura recommends Albedo give the Bicorn a name, Shalltear suddenly thought of a great idea that she would like to share with them. Shalltear suggests that they could try asking Kyouhukou about the way of naming a familiar as the latter excels at summoning its comrades.
However, upon mentioning that particular Area Guardianshe felt entirely gross out by how the discussion switch to the manner in which Kyouhukou's familiars act around them. For that reason, she pleaded the two to stop talking about it as that subject is making her feel itchy all of a sudden. Shalltear told them that although she was in-charge of the 2nd Floor including the area where Kyouhukou was stationed in, she express her wish not to visit there, viewing it to be nothing more than a place of horror.
Hearing from Albedo that Entoma call Kyouhukou's area a snack room, she disgustingly vows to not go near Entoma ever again. Later, as Albedo tries to mount her Bicorn, the mount began to collapse from her touch for unknown reason which shocked Shalltear.
Seeing this, Shalltear believe that perhaps it was because Albedo had some weight issue, growing too fat and heavy for the bicorn to carry steadily. Along the way, Shalltear was teased by both Aura and Albedo of her own failure for not being able to properly execute her previous mission from before assigned by Ainz. According to Shalltear, all she had done recently were mistakes on her part while lamenting on it. Although Shalltear remains frustrated and dismayed over her past mistakes, she ends up quickly dismissing it shortly thereafter.
Since Demiurge is not around to assist Albedo on the issue of riding her Bicorn, Shalltear figures this was a good opportunity to help Albedo out and prove herself useful during situations like these. With help from an item that Ainz has rewarded her, Shalltear is able to lend Albedo a hand on the matter of knowledge of why she can't ride the Bicorn freely despite her summoning it.
Shockingly, while reading through the page on Bicorn, she discovers that these kind of creatures have included a certain condition, where even for its own summoners to conjure it, they must also be non-virgins for one to ride them freely. After reading this, Shalltear and Aura have also learn from Albedo that despite being a succubusthe Overseer is still a virgin.
Not knowing enough, Shalltear decided to look for a page on Succubus to further research herself on Albedo's race. When Albedo harshly question the vampire about her love life, Shalltear reveals that she has only been with girls from her experience. She reasons that there aren't any good men around to satisfy her specific lust such as liking the dead but not ones that are rotten corpses.
She tries to look toward Aura for approval of her taste, but neither the latter nor Albedo found it hard to understand and accept her strange fetish as appealing.
As Albedo realizes that she needs Ainz to break her non-virgin status in order to ride her Bicorn, Shalltear was quick to deem it sly. She reasons it to be saddening for a woman like Albedo who can't win Ainz's heart over with her charm alone. Without being able to ride the Bicorn, Shallear mockingly views Albedo to be weaker than before, trying to get back at the Overseer for delighting on her suffering. Afterwards, Shalltear and the two begins exploring the Green Hole from within the 6th Floor of Nazarick, discussing the modified changes that they did with it.
Since she have already been to that location and visited the new residents there, Shalltear was apparently concern that Albedo did not know about it beforehand but the former until Aura reasonably explains why there is no intruder who can escape Nazarick alive.
To this extent, they also converse over what agenda may Ainz be possibly planning to do in the near future for what's to come regarding Nazarick and its new inhabitants like the Mandrakes. Nevertheless, they all agree that everything that has transpired until now is going according to Ainz's plan and the expenses in managing Nazarick is being handled smoothly.
Shalltear also asked about what Mare's duty was in managing this floor. When asked by how she wants to eat tomato dishes from Sous-chef, she was annoyed that everyone think Vampires like herself enjoyed tomato juice when it is not her interest. While on the 6th Floor, she even spare some time to pet a Spear Needlecaressing it nonstop and being informed by Aura the creature's abilities and the latter's way of controlling it.
Since it was finally time for Aura to resume her duty, Shalltear and Albedo also parted ways shortly thereafter, promising the two that they will see each other again in the bath. Later, Shalltear and the two female Floor Guardians later join together at the Spa Resort Nazarick to take a bath together.
She and Albedo were restrained by Aura to be on their best behavior and not try to invade the men's bath where their master was at with the male Floor Guardians. Meanwhile, Shalltear discusses with Albedo and Aura about things like Ainz not needing permission from them to peek at the women's bath. Additionally, she advised Albedo to not use her toothbrush in brushing and washing her teeth in the bathroom.
Realizing that it can't be help due to Albedo's situation, Shalltear decided to let it slide. When asked by Aura if she is going to brush like Albedo too, Shalltear said she will do it on her own time in her room. Nevertheless, Shalltear appears worry whether she can get cavities from taking this kind of bath.
Although she and Aura were initially upset at the fact that Albedo jump into the bath under her true form, that thought quickly went away when they were alarm by the male voice of a Lion Golem going off.
As a result, she and the two were force to engage in combat with the Lion Golem while Ainz and the male Floor Guardians came into the women's bath to assist them. Shalltear attends a meeting with the rest of the Floor Guardians to decide what kind of rewards they wish to receive from Ainz.
She requests a coupon to sleep together with Ainz, which utterly awes the Floor Guardians around her as something noteworthy for them to hear out. During the meeting, when Ainz inquires which Floor Guardian asked for sleeping vouchers, Shalltear admits that she was the one who made such a suggestion.
Confronting her master again at the second meeting alongside the other Guardians, she shows Ainz her brassiere made by a master smith with two of the gold coins Fall Victim - Alkaline Trio - Crimson (CD) bestowed upon her.
In a meeting among the Floor Guardians, Sebas, and Narberal, Shalltear thinks there has to be something specific in the marketplace Ainz wants to familiarize them with. This leads to her getting made fun of by her fellow Floor Guardians as she says something smart for once, which amuses Aura and Demiurge. During another meeting with Ainz, Shalltear presents her master a protective charm she purchased with Momon's scent on it to wear.
At Ainz's request, Shalltear, along with several other Floor Guardians, are asked to play a table game as an exercise to better understand humans.
Under Ainz's order, Shalltear was given the task of transporting the grain from Re-Estize in front of the warehouses to the Great Tomb of Nazarick via using her [Gate] spell. In other words, due to Demiurge's awareness of her [Blood Frenzy], Shalltear is placed on mobile support duty, where she will be on standby for a while throughout Operation Gehenna.
She tries to convince him that the Spuit Lance will drain the enemies' blood dry before it has the less likely chance to trigger but failed. She approach him in a similar manner like last time, hoping to toy with her opponent for the meantime. While Brain engages with Shalltear in battle, she surprisingly realizes that he's targeting her fingernail and succeeds in cutting it. As Shalltear tries to catch Brain, she comes to a halt upon seeing Climb and decides to stop her pursuit.
When Shalltear was given the order to let one of the members of Foresight have a painless death, she was tasked with hunting down and killing Archewho was allow to escape from the Amphitheater by Ainz intentionally.
For this reason, Shalltear was ordered to teach Arche the meaning of terror, the gulf between the sliver of hope for escape that the latter clings to, and the inescapable reality that awaits all who dare invade the Great Tomb of Nazarick. As a result, during a game of tag, Shalltear lets her prey run away for a specific period of time until she catches up to her.
While encouraging the girl to keep trying to run for her life, Shalltear calls on her familiars to chase her down. Once Arche finds out that she's still underground, Shalltear captures the girl after defeating her and making her fall into absolute despair.
While holding her in a lover's embrace, Shalltear kills her while she is unconscious. Following through with Ainz's order, Shalltaer did not cause Arche any pain, but slay her with the deepest and sincerest mercy. Like Cocytus, Shalltlear does not appear to understand why her master give the human emperor a position as a collaborator when she believes they could have conquered the Empire by force. However, after she listens to Demiurge's prediction of the Emperor's scheme to oppose Nazarick, Shalltear recommends turning him into a vampire to serve Nazarick, but her idea is rejected in favor of a different approach made by Ainz's plan.
To decide on a fitting name for her master, Shalltear suggests they give Ainz the title that is Beautiful King. According to Ainz, incidentally, Shalltear was assigned to Gate-related teleportation duties and the security of Nazarick. When Pandora's Actor express his wish to return to Nazarick's TreasuryAinz obliges and [Message] Shalltear to have her give the Ring of Ainz Ooal Gown to him as a mean so that he can teleport back there. Shalltear becomes a subject of interest by Albedo who begins to conduct experiments on undead creatures to see whether they could experience emotions.
After Shalltear learns of Albedo's operation, it leads to an altercation between the two women, resulting in the experiment being halted during the process. As per the usual duties, Shalltear accompanied by Entoma visited the Lizardman Village.
Once there, with permission from Ainz, she open up a [Gate] specifically at the time before sending over a lizardman envoy Kyuku Zuzu to her master. Alongside Aura, Shalltear herself was informed by Ainz to have been chosen among the very few Floor Guardians to accompany the latter on his travels to the Dwarf Kingdom. Not only that but Shalltear was tasked of ensuring her master's safety while traveling there with him.
As a result, she temporarily hand her usual surveillance duty and Ring of Ainz Ooal Gown over to Mare since she plans to be away for a while to be with her master. After informing Mare about it, she arrived at Ainz's quarters in E-Rantel to hear more of the task explained in details by Ainz. Upon coming into his room fully equipped with the mindset of protecting Ainz and exterminating whoever opposes him, Shalltear was informed by her master that his plans are to forge friendly relations with the Dwarf Kingdom and not destroy them much to her surprise.
Feeling confuse, Shalltear wonders if she was really needed for this expedition until Ainz told the former that she is still going to be traveling by his side in order to protect him regardless. For this journey, Shalltear was placed by Ainz under Aura's command which the former must follow orders accordingly to. When deciding on which vassals to take with them on their expedition, Shalltear was ordered to bring six Vampire Brides and thirty riders from Nazarick, five of which are Hanzos with her while the remaining are undead beings.
A tutt'oggi sono stati rinvenuti 1. Verso il d. I ritrovamenti egiziani gettano luce anche sulla transizione del codex dal papiro alla pergamena. Sebbene gli undici codici della Bibbia datati in quel secolo fossero papiracei, esistono circa 18 codici dello stesso secolo con scritti pagani e quattro di questi sono in pergamena.
Non ne scegliemmo alcuno, ma ne raccogliemmo altri otto per i quali gli diedi dracme in conto. Il codex tanto apprezzato da Marziale aveva quindi fatto molta strada da Roma. Nel terzo secolo, quando tali codici divennero alquanto diffusi, quelli di pergamena iniziarono ad essere popolari. In breve, anche in Egittola fonte mondiale del papiroil codice di pergamena occupava una notevole quota di mercato. Sono tutti di pergamena, edizioni eleganti, scritti in elaborata calligrafia su sottili fogli di pergamena.
Per tali edizioni di lusso il papiro era certamente inadatto. In almeno un'area, la giurisprudenza romanail codex di pergamena veniva prodotto sia in edizioni economiche che in quelle di lusso. La caduta dell'Impero romano nel V secolo d. Il papiro divenne difficile da reperire a causa della mancanza di contatti con l' Antico Egitto e la pergamenache per secoli era stata tenuta in secondo piano, divenne il materiale di scrittura principale. I monasteri continuarono la tradizione scritturale latina dell' Impero romano d'Occidente.
La tradizione e lo stile dell' Impero romano predominavano ancora, ma gradualmente emerse la cultura del libro medievale. I monaci irlandesi introdussero la spaziatura tra le parole nel VII secolo. L'innovazione fu poi adottata anche nei Paesi neolatini come l'Italiaanche se non divenne comune prima del XII secolo. Si ritiene che l'inserimento di spazi tra le parole abbia favorito il passaggio dalla lettura semi-vocalizzata a quella silenziosa.
Prima dell'invenzione e della diffusione del torchio tipograficoquasi tutti i libri venivano copiati a mano, il che li rendeva costosi e relativamente rari. I piccoli monasteri di solito possedevano al massimo qualche decina di libri, forse qualche centinaio quelli di medie dimensioni.
Il processo della produzione di un libro era lungo e laborioso. Infine, il libro veniva rilegato dal rilegatore. Esistono testi scritti in rosso o addirittura in oro, e diversi colori venivano utilizzati per le miniature. A volte la pergamena era tutta di colore viola e il testo vi era scritto in oro o argento per esempio, il Codex Argenteus.
Per tutto l'Alto Medioevo i libri furono copiati prevalentemente nei monasteri, uno alla volta. Il sistema venne gestito da corporazioni laiche di cartolaiche produssero sia materiale religioso che profano.
Questi libri furono chiamati libri catenati. Vedi illustrazione a margine. L' ebraismo ha mantenuto in vita l'arte dello scriba fino ad oggi. Anche gli arabi produssero e rilegarono libri durante il periodo medievale islamicosviluppando tecniche avanzate di calligrafia arabaminiatura e legatoria. Col metodo di controllo, solo "gli autori potevano autorizzare le copie, e questo veniva fatto in riunioni pubbliche, in cui il copista leggeva il testo ad alta voce in presenza dell'autore, il quale poi la certificava come precisa".

I monaci o altri che le scrivevano, venivano pagati profumatamente. I primi libri stampati, i singoli fogli e le immagini che furono creati prima del in Europa, sono noti come incunaboli.

Si noti la copertina lavorata, le borchie d'angolo e i morsetti. Insegnamenti scelti di saggi buddistiil primo libro stampato con caratteri metallici mobili, Le macchine da stampa a vapore diventarono popolari nel XIX secolo. Queste macchine potevano stampare 1. Le macchine tipografiche monotipo e linotipo furono introdotte verso la fine del XIX secolo. Hartla prima biblioteca di versioni elettroniche liberamente riproducibili di libri stampati.
I libri a stampa sono prodotti stampando ciascuna imposizione tipografica su un foglio di carta. Le varie segnature vengono rilegate per ottenere il volume. L'apertura delle pagine, specialmente nelle edizioni in brossuraera di solito lasciata al lettore fino agli anni sessanta del XX secolomentre ora le segnature vengono rifilate direttamente dalla tipografia.
Nei libri antichi il formato dipende dal numero di piegature che il foglio subisce e, quindi, dal numero di carte e pagine stampate sul foglio. Le "carte di guardia", o risguardi, o sguardie, sono le carte di apertura e chiusura del libro vero e proprio, che collegano materialmente il corpo del libro alla coperta o legatura.
Non facendo parte delle segnaturenon sono mai contati come pagine. Si chiama "controguardia" la carta che viene incollata su ciascun "contropiatto" la parte interna del "piatto" della coperta, permettendone il definitivo ancoraggio.
Le sguardie sono solitamente di carta diversa da quella dell'interno del volume e possono essere bianche, colorate o decorate con motivi di fantasia nei libri antichi erano marmorizzate. Il colophon o colofone, che chiude il volume, riporta le informazioni essenziali sullo stampatore e sul luogo e la data di stampa. In origine nei manoscritti era costituito dalla firma o subscriptio del copista o dello scriba, e riportava data, luogo e autore del testo; in seguito fu la formula conclusiva dei libri stampati nel XV e XVI secolo, che conteneva, talvolta in inchiostro rosso, il nome dello stampatore, luogo e data di stampa e l' insegna dell'editore.
Sopravvive ancor oggi, soprattutto con la dicitura Finito di stampare. Nel libro antico poteva essere rivestita di svariati materiali: pergamena, cuoio, tela, carta e costituita in legno o cartone. Poteva essere decorata con impressioni a secco o dorature. Ciascuno dei due cartoni che costituiscono la copertina viene chiamato piatto.
Nel XIX secolo la coperta acquista una prevalente funzione promozionale. Ha caratterizzato a lungo l'editoria per l'infanzia e oggi, ricoperto da una "sovraccoperta", costituisce il tratto caratteristico delle edizioni maggiori.
