This selection of papers by major scholars introduces students to the history of the book in the West from late Antiquity to the publication of the Gutenberg Bible and the beginning of the print revolution. The collection opens with wide-ranging papers on handwriting and the physical make-up of the book. In the second group of papers the emphasis is on the 'look' of the book, complemented by a third group dealing with scribes, readers and the availability of books. The editors' introduction provides an overview of the medieval book.
