Product description


An Introduction to Greek and Latin Palaeography traces the development of handwriting in the Greek and Latin alphabets from the earliest papyri up to the book hands of the middle ages and the court hands of the seventeenth century. It is, without doubt, the best introductory text on the subject ever to appear in English. This edition has been completely reset, and the illustrations have been digitally enhanced. Sir Edward Maunde Thompson (1840--1929) entered University College, Oxford, in 1859 but had to leave before completing his degree. He entered the library of the British Museum (now British Library) in 1861 and became Keeper of Manuscripts in 1878. He was appointed Principal Librarian in 1888.
