An excellent introduction to the field,

This review is from: Introduction to Manuscript Studies (Paperback)
Certainly the best book currently available on Manuscript Studies. The coverage is as comprehensive as a single volume allows, and the illustrations are excellent. It is perhaps worth saying that local historians will need further help with the scripts used in local records, and with the numerous kinds of document found in local archives. But this is not a criticism of the book itself. The authors clearly state what the book is about, and carry out the job admirably.
