Erler, Mary C. Women, reading, and piety in late medieval England. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2002. 8vo (23.4 cm, 9.25"). xii, 226,  pp.; illus. $45.00
"Women, Reading, and Piety in Late Medieval England traces networks of female book ownership and exchange which have so far been obscure, and shows how women were responsible for both owning and circulating devotional books. In seven narratives of individual women who lived between 1350 and 1550, Mary Erler illustrates the ways in which women read and the routes by which they passed books from hand to hand. These stories are prefaced by an overview of nuns' reading and their surviving books, and are followed by a survey of women who owned the first printed books in England."
