The manuscript

Gibson, Jonathan; Norbrook, David and Barbour, Reid (2011). The manuscript. In: Barbour, Reid and Norbrook, David eds. The Works of Lucy Hutchinson. Volume 1: The Translation of Lucretius, Volume 1. Oxford: Oxford University Press, cxxiv-cxxxiii.



Part of the introduction to a critical edition of Lucy Hutchinson's translation of Lucretius' De rerum natura. The edition takes its text from a manuscript written out by Hutchinson and a scribe (British Library Additional MS 19333). This section of the introduction describes and analyses the manuscript's physical features--watermarks, gatherings and hand-writing--in an attempt to reconstruct the stages through which Hutchinson and her scribe went in putting the manuscript together.
