Working with Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
This straightforward, well-illustrated guide to manuscript study for students and researchers in Anglo-Saxon history and literature brings together invaluable advice on accessing and handling historical manuscripts from a group of acclaimed scholars and historians. Aimed at developing an informed and realistic approach to exploring these manuscripts under time constraints, Working with Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts explores the various resources available in libraries; recent developments in electronic and archival databases; and the use of manuscript art, glosses, and marginalia. Geared to both instructors and individual researchers, as well as those working in close contact with or away from the location of these manuscripts, this volume is an authoritative reference source for all aspects of manuscript history.
