Abstract

The book reviewed argues that the meaning and context of Anglo-Norman histories cannot be fully understood without atten­tion to the visual layout of the entire page. By comparing extant copies of the same texts, the book considers what factors influence the mise-en-page, and how these manuscripts circulated and were amended through time.
