KIRKUS REVIEW

This ""panoramic conspectus"" for the student, or the interested reader, covers greater ground than its extent competition, the Viking Portable Medieval Reader. More than 100 writers selected from a thousand year span are included. The ""representative"" readings from an era of tremendous inquiry and experimentation cover alchemy and astrology, science and technology, history, geography, political theory, education, travel, trade, legend, cultural life and letters. An essential background book with an appendix giving sketches of the contributors and the sources.
