The interactive edition of The Exeter Anthology of Old English Poetry is an invaluable acquisition of historical and literary significance for most libraries and an indispensable reference work for medievalists and other scholars interested in literature, codicology and Anglo-Saxon society.
The DVD contains the revised second edition of The Exeter Anthology of Old English Poetry. This is linked to a full-colour digital facsimile of Exeter Cathedral, Dean & Chapter MS 3501, commonly known as 'The Exeter Book', and images of various other related historical documents. Also included is a new codicological report (with images) on the manuscript's current binding. The images used in the facsimile are based upon extremely high resolution original scans, each of which is approximately 100 MB in size; they often provide more information than is available from a physical examination of the manuscript itself.
The Electronic Exeter Anthology of Old English Poetry is available as a special package with a hard copy (in two volumes) of the revised second edition. This second edition includes many newly-discovered alterations to the poetic texts in addition to the four hundred new readings listed in the apparatus of the first edition. The Bibliography has been updated and reorganised and the Commentary includes discussion of critical works that have appeared since 1994. The DVD and the two-volume set are also available as separate items.
