S. P. Oakley

  • Analyses hundreds of manuscripts that have never been discussed before, establishing their worth, or lack thereof, for editors
  • Demonstrates that, despite the doubts of some influential scholars, genealogical investigation of manuscripts is achievable
  • Localizes many manuscripts, which will be of use to historians of the book in Renaissance Italy
  • Provides models of what a full investigation of a manuscript tradition may look like for anyone interested in the transmission of Latin texts
