Thomas Mores Utopia in early modern Europe

Paratexts and contexts

Terence Cave

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Contains the first complete account of all the editions of Thomas More's Utopia printed before 1650, from right across the continent
  • Utopia has always been read as a seminal text but scholars, until now, had no idea how the text moved via translation from culture to culture
  • Collects all of the 'paratexts', along with illustrations from the original editions, in both their original language and in an English translation
  • A key work of scholarship, literary detective work and of European academic cooperation
