This review is from: From Memory to Written Record: England 1066-1307 (Paperback)
I fell in love with an earlier edition of this book in 1998 while studying for an M.A. in Book History. It was out of print then and I have to admit to secretly photocopying a library copy, a few pages at a time, because I just had to own it. For me every chapter was full of brand new information and the earlier chapters in particular are absolutely fascinating. It is for anyone who wants to know more about how society functioned before written records were made, how they started to appear, and why they are so precious.
Over the years I have checked Amazon periodically and was delighted to find that a new edition has been printed, and finally to be able to destroy my guilty photocopied secret.
