Perceptions of Medieval Manuscripts

The Phenomenal Book

Elaine Treharne

  • Evaluates the medieval book, for the first time, as an object-in-the-world
  • Brings the past and the present into conversation by showing how medieval manuscripts are treated up to the present day, including digitization and book-breaking
  • Includes analyses of texts and images of many manuscripts that are rarely discussed and some of which are cut up and sold for profit
