Daniel Wakelin uses new methods and theories in the history of reading to uncover fresh information about the design, ownership, and marginalia of books in a neglected period in English literary history. Transforming our understanding of how new trends influenced writers from Chaucer, through Lydgate and Caxton, to the early Tudor period, this is the first book to identify the origins of the humanist tradition in England in the 15th century.
