Drawing on the work of Woudhuysen, Love, Marotti and others, shows how and why manuscripts, and their care, copying and collection, were so important to Renaissance culture. Illustrates these matters with quotations and anecdotes from writers of Burley’s period. Distinguishes this manuscript collection from other miscellanies by its size and variety. Proposes in later chapters to bring to light its vastness, complexity and undiscovered riches, and to show how its study may reward students of literature and social history.
