About this Item

First edition, printed for the members of the Roxburghe Club: a 15th-century prose rendition of one of the most popular virgin martyr legends, transcribed from the original manuscript and extensively annotated. The title-page is printed in black and red, and the main text ? which preserves the spelling and special characters of the Middle English ? is preceded by a color-printed facsimile of the first leaf of the illuminated manuscript. The volume closes with a reissue of the Early English Text Society's printing of Einenkel's edition of an Early Middle English verse rendition of the saint's life, given in Latin and Middle English. 4to (26.6 cm, 10.5"). [8], xix, [1], 86, [2], lxii, 188 pp.; 1 col. plt. NSTC 0458171. Later full navy morocco, spine with gilt-stamped title; spine gently sunned. Top edges gilt. Two pages with small spots of faint staining, overall gentle age-toning. A nice example of the Roxburghe Club's => impeccable publication standards. Bookseller Inventory # 33492
