Description/Abstract

As part of a talk given by Mr. Underwood on behalf of the Syracuse Library Associates, this article gives a fascinating insight into the history of texts, focusing mostly on Medieval Ireland, instead of the more obvious Germany. Underwood argues that the lessons learned from the history of books isn't merely for antiquarians, but vital to proper intellectual stimulation, which modern technology can only supplement, not supplant.
