About this Item

quarto, 155pp. British Library MS Additional 31042 (the London Thornton manuscript) is one of two miscellaneous collections copied in the middle years of the 15 th century by Robert Thornton of East Newton in North Yorkshire. It has secured its place in the history of late medieval book production as " Thornton's other book," since it is always seen as smaller, less varied in contents, less well organized, and therefore less important than its sister volume at Lincoln. The main objectives of the present study are to re-examine these assumptions and to draw attention to the many bibliographical problems presented by the manuscript in order to offer a preliminary assessment of the evidence the book can provide concerning Thornton's general book-producing efforts. With 1 color and 85 black and white illustrations; including numerous illustrations of watermarks evident in the two manuscripts. A very fine, clean copy in a like dust jacket which is not price clipped. Bookseller Inventory # 12723
