Trinity College Cambridge MS R.14.52 is one of the most important extant witnesses to vernacular medical and scientific writing in late medieval England. This two-volume collection of essays and texts opens with studies of the physical manuscript, its contents and textual relations to other Middle English medical compendia, its scribe, scribal dialect, and the translation strategies of its principal translator, followed by editions of over a dozen texts from the manuscript, nearly all unique and hitherto unpublished. The book concludes with two linguistic appendices, a list of manuscripts cited, an extensive general glossary and specialized glossaries of materia medica and proper names, and a bibliography.
