Description

In the Index of Images (2007) for NYC, Michael Orr and I included a section called “Continental MSS Made for the English Market.” These contain often extensive illumination, were written elsewhere but have English features or English texts, and were made for English owners. This session will examine Continental influence on the making of manuscripts and early printed books for the English market, with a special focus on the transnational character of such texts.

Keywords: English, Continental, scribes, artists
