Description

Like people, books migrate, a factor not always fully considered in the study of MSS and early printed books. Madrid, Biblioteca Nacional, Vitr. 23-8, a twelfth-century Psalter, begun in Winchester, made its way to Jerusalem, with fourteenth-century texts added in Italy, traveling across time as well as space. Manuscripts may contain illustrations made elsewhere or added texts. Printed books also move from place to place as may be seen in ownership marks and debates over place of publication. This session considers books that travelled with scholars, Wycliffite texts, and the movement of books in late-medieval Oxford. Martha W. Driver

Keywords: migration, manuscripts, printed books, English, Continental, Paris, London, Oxford
