This volume is an annual periodical reflecting the growth of scholarly interest in manuscript sources for literature and intellectual history from medieval to early modern times. Encompassing the study of manuscripts produced in the British Isles between the Conquest and the end of the seventeenth century, it provides a forum for the interdisciplinary investigation of both medieval and Renaissance manuscripts and aims to stimulate the awareness of the possibilities for manuscript studies in general. Each volume includes several illustrated articles on topics ranging over the whole period 1100-1700, with shorter contributions announcing new discoveries or discussing detailed points of interest, and a comprehensive survey of recent sales, movements, and acquisitions of manuscripts.
