0.00 CHF

This collection of essays, celebrating the distinguished career of Alison Saunders (University of Aberdeen), consists of contributions from friends and colleagues from different stages of her life. All serve to demonstrate that, indeed, Le livre demeure...; that book may be in the form of a manuscript or of an early printed book, illustrated by woodcuts or engravings, or indeed transformed into an electronic medium, but always the centrality of looking at the material text, words or images on the page determines the critical approaches adopted in these papers, as in Saunders' own research over more than 40 years. While many contributors have turned to Saunders' own favoured field of the emblem, the entire volume serves as a paradigm of the way in which recourse to the original primary sources, the actual marks on paper (or vellum), can and should underpin literary and historical study in the Medieval and Early Modern periods.
