From the Publisher"Hanna posits a myriad of localized literatures, certainly capable of interplay with one another, but primarily responsive to local conditions, pressures and requirements. Any reader with even a passing interest in fourteenth century English writings is likely to find much of value here."
-Ben Parsons, University of Sheffield, Sixteenth Century Journal
"Ralph Hanna continually particularizes our understanding of later medieval English literary and textual culture through investigation of many of its varied material witnesses. Arraying a body of carefully accumulated details behind a forceful thesis in this book, he inaugurates a major shift in how readers will view the development of Middle-English literature."
-Miceal F. Vaughan, University of Washington, Journal of Medieval Studies
"Hanna's work demonstrates convincingly that books produced in London answered the professional and pious needs of intelligent and socially responsible Londoners in diverse and resourceful ways. [...] Hanna's account of fourteenth-century London book history offers much that is significant in both content and method."
-Julia Boffey, Queen Mary University of London, Journal of English and Germanic Philology
