New Texts and Discoveries in Early Modern English Manuscripts explores both newly discovered manuscripts and new aspects of known manuscript writings by a number of major early modern authors—including genres such as commonplace books, sermons, unpublished poems, and previously unrecognized printer’s copies. The thirteen essays collected in the volume shed new light on already notable texts and add fresh research approaches to issues of authorship, scribal transmission, and compilation practices.
