Summary

This volume presents a history of the English medieval book through a series of examples centered on specific texts and their physical and cultural environments. It offers a sequence of analyses of commonplace problems of the book historian.

Subjects covered include authorship, genre, discontinuous production,n and scribal individuality as well as the history of libraries and the history of book provenance
