Product Description


'Il volume di cui parliamo e sicuramente uno dei piu utili prodotti su tale argomento. Geoffrey Roper ha infatti curato, dopo la sua introduzione, una raccolta di 27 articoli sul tema, arricchito di un indice dei nomi finale. Un indice che giunge a soccorso per la ricerca di riferimenti, storia etc. sparsi in studi gia editi, anche se spesso in sedi disparate e non di immediato accesso, che quanto mai utilmente sono qui raccolti in un'unica sede ... Si tratta quindi di una preziosa antologia, ma allo stesso tempo di una precisa affermazione dell'importanza di questo settore di studi, accanto allo studio della correlate tradizione manoscritta, e della necessita di proseguire in queste direzioni.' Oriente Moderno ['The volume under review is certainly one of the most useful ever published on this subject. In fact, after his introduction, Geoffrey Roper has edited a collection of 27 articles on the topic, enriched with a final index of names. An index which comes to the rescue of any scholar searching for references, history etc. which are all scattered in previously published studies but often in disparate locations and not immediately accessible, but are here very usefully all gathered in one place ... It is therefore a very valuable anthology, but at the same time a precise statement of the importance of this field of study, in addition to the study of the correlated tradition of manuscripts, and the need to continue in this direction.'] Oriente Moderno
