Late Eighth-century Latin-Anglo-Saxon Glossary Preserved in the Library of the Leiden University
Paperback. 308 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.3in. x 0.9in.Prior to his 1890 publication of the Corpus Christi Latin-Old English MS, also reissued in this series, Jan Hendrik Hessels (1836-1926) had begun transcribing this equally important text, of which his edition was published in 1906. (He explains the delay by referring to work of another nature: his monumental edition of the archive of the Dutch Church in London (1887-1897), also now available in the Cambridge Library Collection. ) Hessels again provides a thorough introduction, including a detailed physical description of the manuscript alongside its history, provenance, and a wealth of other information. The work contains extracts from various texts and treatises, and Hessels cross-references to other glossaries demonstrate the importance of the Leiden MS for gloss-literature, and will be of use to philologists, scholars of Old English and medieval Latin, and historians of the medieval period.

Book Description: Part of the importance of this text lies in its correspondences to other medieval glossaries. Offering a complete transcription and commentary which traces sources, and with several indices, Jan Hendrick Hessels' edition, first published in 1906, is still sought after by scholars.
