Family matters: the Roberts family of Willesden -- Private faces in public places -- Devotional reading in the reigns of Henry VII and Henry VIII -- Out of the cloister, out of the family -- Books and their uses -- Devotional reading in the reigns of Mary Tudor and Elizabeth I -- Conclusion: Newly reformed readers? -- Postscript: after the family: The manuscripts' later histories
"This innovative study investigates the reception of medieval manuscripts over a long century, 1470-1585, spanning the reigns of Edward IV to Elizabeth I. Members of the Tudor gentry family who owned these manuscripts had properties in Willesden and professional affiliations in London. These men marked the leaves of their books with signs of use, allowing their engagement with the texts contained there to be reconstructed. Through detailed research Margaret Connolly reveals the various uses of these old books: as a repository for family records; as a place to preserve other texts of a favourite or important nature; as a source of practical information for the household; and as a professional manual for the practising lawyer."-- Provided by publisher
