This latest volume in the British Library’s prestigious series on the history of the manuscript in English is chiefly concerned with the production and circulation of regional manuscripts between the twelfth and seventeenth centuries. Distinguished contributors such as Kathryn Lowe, Andrew Taylor, and Kathleen Scott cover topics as diverse as the charters of the Abbey of Bury St. Edmonds, analysis of a seventeenth-century ballad manuscript, and studies of the Tabula medicine and Speculum Christiani. Presenting a wealth of material on a variety of texts from the twelfth century forward, this volume also includes a previously unpublished paper by the late Neil Ker and a record of all manuscripts at auction in 2006 and 2007.
