Introducing English Medieval Book History

Manuscripts, their Producers and their Readers

Ralph Hanna

Liverpool University Press

Exeter Medieval Texts and Studies LUP

  • The first book to provide a true introduction to 'book history' as opposed to confining itself to the narrower concerns of palaeographically oriented studies.
  • Combines work on seminal texts, such as 'Beowulf', with new analyses of less established texts.
  • By suggesting worthwhile research topics to suit a range of book-history interests, Hanna engages constructively with the student-reader.
