The Commonplace Book in Tudor London examines the late medieval commonplace book in England, who kept these cheap, popular anthologies, what sorts of texts were transcribed into them, and what accounts for their rapid rise in popularity in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. The author discusses previous scholarship on commonplace books, as well as four manuscripts in exhaustive detail, giving as complete an account as possible of its provenance, materials, compiler, and individual texts, using all of these factors to produce a literary and cultural analysis of that codex. Finally, a brief analysis of the importance of the genre as an indicator of popular tastes, a milestone in the development of the internal life of the middle class Londoner, and as an aid to modern literary and historical interpretation of texts within the manuscripts.
