Summary
Perhaps more than any other kind of book, manuscript miscellanies require a complex and 'material' reading strategy. This collection of essays models and refines the study of these complicated volumes. Using extensive textual and bibliographical evidence, it offers stimulating new readings of literature, politics and religion in the early modern period, and promises to make important interventions in the history of the book
