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. Befitting a tribute to a bibliophile, this volume
has been handsomely designed by Lida Kindersley of the Cardozo
Kindersley Workshop in Cambridge, and is extensively illustrated.
The volume as a whole constitutes a substantial body of research on
medieval English literature, and early books and manuscripts.
