    1. Have read the first couple of chapters in this bookSo far it is a truly fascinating look at the production and use of books in medival England from 1100 to 1400. Lots of great stuff here: interesting articles, a vast bibliography (which will lead you to more great books about books) and a large section of plates with great photos of books and manuscripts. Downside: quite expensive and the photos are not in color.
