John Stow and the making of the English past : studies in early modern culture and the history of the book by Ian Anders Gadd Book 11 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "The scholar and antiquarian John Stow is a figure of crucial importance to our understanding of medieval and early modern English history, literature, and culture.
His Chronicles of English history paved the way for the famous historical projects of Raphael Holinshed and William Camden, and shaped the historical consciousness of early modern dramatists and poets such as Shakespeare and Samuel Daniel. Its contributors consider the feuds and friendships at the heart of the Tudor historiographical project, the construction of a political and religious culture, and the topographical history, for Elizabethan London, the early modern invention of the medieval past, and the manuscript and printed books written and collected by this industrious and important 'maker' of English history.

Lydgate, John - Sponsler - - Major Reference Works - Wiley Online Library
Examining hundreds of early printed books and their late medieval analogues, Alexandra Gillespie writes a bibliographical history of the poet Geoffrey Chaucer and his follower John Lydgate in the century after the arrival of printing in England. Her study is an important new contribution to the emerging "sociology of the text" in English literary and historical studies.
At the center of this study is a familiar question: what is an author? The idea of the vernacular writer was already contested and unstable in medieval England; Gillespie demonstrates that in the late Middle Ages it was also a way for book producers and readers to mediate the risks--commercial, political, religious, and imaginative--involved in the publication of literary texts.

Gillespie's discussion focuses on the changes associated with the shift to print, scribal precedents for these changes, and contemporary understanding of them. The treatment of texts associated with Chaucer and Lydgate is an index to the sometimes flexible, sometimes resistant responses of book printers, copyists, decorators, distributors, patrons, censors, owners, and readers to a gradual but profoundly influential bibliographical transition.
