Description

Fragments attest to works otherwise unknown or lost, or they supply evidence of previously unknown or recorded texts. This wide-ranging session will open with a consideration of 11c drawings in palimpsest, the recovery of a Welsh text previously thought unreadable, a ME verse chanson d’aventure copied into a 1490 imprint, and the fragments found in books owned by Elias Bouhéreau, an early modern collector whose entire collection is housed in Marsh’s Library, Dublin.
