Item description for Imagining the Book (Medieval Texts and Cultures of Northern Europe) (Medieval Texts and Cultures of Northern Europe) by Stephen Kelly & John J. Thompson...
This book offers a snapshot of current research in English manuscript study in the pre-modern period on the inter-related topics of patrons and collectors, compilers, editors and readers, and identities beyond the book. This volume responds to the recent development and institutionalization of 'History of the Book' within the wider English Studies discipline. Scholars working in the pre-printing era with the material vestiges of a predominantly manuscript culture are currently establishing their own models of production and reception. Research in this area is now an accepted part of twenty-first century Medieval Studies.
