Description
This acclaimed study of English medieval manuscripts and early printed books -- many items from Professor Takamiya’s own collection -- quickly sold out in hardcover. The subjects range from Saint Jerome to Tolkien, with particular concentrations on Chaucer, Gower, Malory and religious and historical writings of the late Middle Ages. There are essays examining the work of early printers such as Caxton and de Worde, and of bibliophiles and antiquarians in modern times. The volume has been handsomely designed and is extensively illustrated. It constitutes a substantial body of research on medieval English literature and early books and manuscripts.
Physically splendid [with] an astonishingly large number of plates. A feast of a festschrift, a banquet of a book that should not be missed. RICARDIAN
