The latest volume in the well-established English Manuscript Studies 11001700 series focuses on early English manuscripts copied before 1400. The thirteen essays demonstrate the complex multicultural and multilingual written culture of this period, examining works written in Old and Middle English, Latin, and Anglo-Norman. Contributors explore a variety of approaches to hitherto neglected topics, such as the historical and cultural importance of documentary records, from charters and forgeries to genealogical chronicles. Other essays examine aspects of the material book, addressing the function of script and illustration and the transmission of early texts into the Renaissance. Contributing scholars include Mark Chambers, Aidan Conti, Michael Gullick, Jennifer Jahner, Erik Kwakkel, Katherine Lowe, Andrew Prescott, Lucy Freeman Sandler, Philip Shaw, Don Skemer, Louise Sylvester, D. A. Woodman, and George Younge.
