    This is the first history of the book in Britain from the Norman Conquest until the early 15th century. The twenty-six expert contributors to this volume discuss the manuscript book from a variety of angles--as physical object; its purpose & readership; & as the vehicle for particular types of text. In all of this, broader, changing social & cultural context is kept in mind, & so are the various connections with continental Europe. The volume also includes a full bibliography & over eighty black-&-white plates.
