In this volume the methods of codicology join those of traditional textual analysis to shed light on how the Latin classics were produced, illustrated, used, and collected in the Middle Ages. Several essays provide an overview of the production and acquisition of manuscripts of the classics; others offer detailed accounts of the work of individuals, from the Carolingian scholars Dungal and Lupus of Ferrieres to the Florentine scribes and artists whom the humanist Vespasiano de Bisticci organized to meet the demands of his Medici patrons, among others.
