Review of the hardback: 'One of the ... pleasures it brings to light lies precisely in its use of details ... The essays collected here will do much to stimulate further work on the overlapping cultures of speech, manuscript and print.' H. R. Woudhuysen, Reviews in History Review of the hardback: 'Cambridge University Press is here, as ever, incomparable as a producer of academic books.' CILIP Rare Books Group Review of the hardback: '... this stimulating collection can be warmly recommended for the range of topics it covers and the lively answers it offers to the many pressing questions raised.' History Review of the hardback: 'Many boundaries are fruitfully crossed in these essays. They bring together the Middle Ages and the early-modern period at the same time as ranging flexibly over manuscript and printed text and various forms of oral discourse. They look beyond London to regions and localities, and sometimes to continental contexts as well. They confront and explore what have been accepted as authoritative arguments about a number of issues ... and refine or sometimes refute them with recourse to fresh evidence and speculation. With its insights, questions, and comprehensively high standard of writing and scholarship, this is a valuable and illuminating collection.' The Library Review of the hardback: 'This collection is a stimulating and authoritative guide to the range of relevant and recent literature.' Southern History Society Review of the hardback: 'The Uses of Script and Print is a stimulating addition to recent debates.' Reformation Review of the hardback: 'It is an important compilation, not just for what the individual authors have to say, but also for the broader resonances of their ideas. ... a significant set of papers, and definitely a rewarding read.' The Heythrop Journal
