    The work of one of the great pioneering scholars of palaeography, the Introduction has remained the principal work in its field in English. Thompson provides an account of the history and progress of Greek and Latin palaeography from the earliest periods for which there are surviving manuscripts to the late 15th century, and illustrates it with an invaluable selection of 250 facsimiles ranging from Greek literary and cursive papyri to medieval manuscripts of English vernacular book-hand and late medieval Latin official documents, reproduced from plates of the Palaeographical Society. Oxbow reprint.
