Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0712348646, Hardcover)

This collection is the first to assess the full range and diversity of the Irascible Elizabethan antiquary, John Stow, and his unique contribution to the 'making of the English past'. Touching on topics as wide-ranging as the identification of medieval forgeries and Hebrew inscriptions on the city walls, these essays make an invaluable contribution to our memory of one of the remarkable men of the early modern age.
