Print culture and the medieval author : Chaucer, Lydgate, and their books, 1473-1557 by Alexandra Gillespie( )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining hundreds of early printed books containing works by Chaucer, the 'father' of English poetry, and his much-maligned follower, John Lydgate.

John Stow (1525-1605) and the making of the English past : studies in early modern culture and the history of the book by Ian Anders Gadd( )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The scholar and antiquarian John Stow (1525-1605) is a figure of crucial importance to our understanding of medieval and early modern English history, literature, and culture." "His Survey of London, an account of metropolitan topography and tradition, is still an invaluable resource for scholars of the early modern city. His Chronicles of English history paved the way for the famous historical projects of Raphael Holinshed and William Camden, and shaped the historical consciousness of early modern dramatists and poets such as Shakespeare and Samuel Daniel." "This volume collects together wide-ranging new essays on Stow. Its contributors consider the feuds and friendships at the heart of the Tudor historiographical project, the construction of a political and religious culture, and the topographical history, for Elizabethan London, the early modern invention of the medieval past, and the manuscript and printed books written and collected by this industrious and important 'maker' of English history."--Jacket
The Production of Books in England 1350-1500 by Alexandra Gillespie( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between roughly 1350 and 1500, the English vernacular became established as a language of literary, bureaucratic, devotional and controversial writing; metropolitan artisans formed guilds for the production and sale of books for the first time; and Gutenberg's and eventually Caxton's printed books reached their first English consumers. This book gathers the best new work on manuscript books in England made during this crucial but neglected period. Its authors survey existing research, gather intensive new evidence and develop new approaches to key topics. The chapters cover the material conditions and economy of the book trade; amateur production both lay and religious; the effects of censorship; and the impact on English book production of manuscripts and artisans from elsewhere in the British Isles and Europe. A wide-ranging and innovative series of essays, this volume is a major contribution to the history of the book in medieval England"--
