Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Taking heritage to mean both the antecedents of a manuscript and its subsequent fate and the research based on it, 11 essays represent recent work on cataloguing, describing, photographing, and interpreting manuscripts of the Old English period. They investigate specific codices, their contents, use, audience, and context within the broader culture that produced them; and affirm the importance of close and sustained examination of the manuscripts themselves, and of understanding the changes that time and chance have wrought on them. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
