Commonly referred to as The Exeter Book, this important anthology is the earliest and largest surviving collection of vernacular poetry from Anglo-Saxon England. The interactive edition will be an invaluable acquisition of historical and literary significance for most libraries and an indispensable reference work for medievalists and other scholars interested in literature, codicology and Anglo-Saxon society.
The set of CDs contains the revised second edition of The Exeter Anthology of Old English Poetry, linked to a full-colour digital facsimile of Exeter Cathedral, Dean & Chapter MS 3501 and images of various other related historical documents. Also included is a new codicological report (with images) on the manuscript's current binding. The images used in the facsimile are based upon extremely high resolution original scans, often providing more information than is available from a physical examination of the manuscript itself.
A new edition of the whole of the Exeter Book, with a commentary and bibliography.
