"A volume of broad, interdisciplinary appeal. . . . This volume would be an excellent classroom resource . . . . This beautifully illustrated, skillfully organized resource is an ideal survey of the field, valuable for presenting information critical to new students and veteran scholars, for teaching the history and scope of the medieval manuscript. A very worthwhile addition to collections in medieval studies, art history, English literature, or archival studies."―Choice
"Introduction to Manuscript Studies is for beginners and seasoned scholars alike, offering details―such as that the best quills are plucked in the springtime from the left wings of live geese―that will delight everyone. Bringing together codicology, paleography, material culture, and a bit of art history as well, this gorgeous, comprehensive, and charming book should be on the syllabus of every course in medieval studies."―Barbara H. Rosenwein, Loyola University Chicago
"Impressive in both its comprehensive range and depth of detail and even more remarkable for the clarity of its writing and illustration, this long-needed volume will serve as an admirable introduction for students from the many disciplines that study medieval manuscripts. It is also likely to become a treasured reference tool for experienced scholars."―Richard K. Emmerson, Florida State University
