A stimulating volume bringing together fourteen leading specialists to pay tribute to Dr Peter Beal, the founding editor of the English Manuscripts Studies 1100-1700
The main purpose of this stimulating volume is to bring together 14 leading specialists to pay tribute to Dr Peter Beal, the founding editor of the English Manuscripts Studies 1100-1700 (16 volumes so far published by the British Library) and also the creator of Catalogue of English Literary Manuscripts 1450-1700, who has done so much to promote the study of the primary sources of this major but largely under-appreciated area of our literary culture.
