Item description for Transformation of Knowledge: Early Manuscripts from the Collection of Lawrence J. Schoenberg by Crofton Black...

This remarkable collection of medieval and Renaissance manuscripts in Westerna dn Estern languages reflects the collector's fascination with science and technology. These hand-written volumes reveal the complexity and sophistication of pre-modern knowledge about the physical world in the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim traditions. The interdependence of these traditions, and their mutual reliance on the legacy of antiquity, are a particular empnasis of this richly illustrated volume. Manuscripts, properly speaking, are not rare; they are unique. Each one provides a snapshot of one or more individuals---some celebrated, others unknown or anonymous---grappling with the intellectual problems of their time. The collection presented here is a direct and evocative testament to the range of human knowledge---mathematical, medical, astronomical, technological---as it evolved in the medieval and early modern era.
