Texts and Transitions is based on the ideals and aims of the Early Book Society. It publishes monographs and thematic collections dealing with late medieval manuscripts and early printed books to about 1550. The focus is mainly on manuscripts and books produced in England or for the English market, and closely related French and north-west European works.
