Canterbury preserves a significant collection of medieval manuscripts. All its pre-13th-century books are catalogued and discussed for the first time and each is illustrated in colour. Highlights range from the oldest copies of the Alfredian translation of Gregory the Great's "Dialogues", Lanfranc's "Gloss on the Epistles" and an extraordinarily grand copy of Peter Comestor's "Historia" scholastica. Clear descriptions are complemented by broad-ranging analyses that explain the significance of these works in general and of the Canterbury copies in particular. A substantial Introduction traces the history of book-production in Kent up to c.1200, the development and use of its collections in the later Middle Ages, and the fate of its books at the Reformation.
