John Dee: The Politics of Reading and Writing in the English Renaissance by William H. Sherman
Summary From the Publisher: In a recent sale catalog, one bookseller apologized for the condition of a sixteenth-century volume as "rather soiled by use. Sherman recovers a culture that took the phrase "mark my words" quite literally. Books from the first two centuries of printing are full of marginalia and other signs of engagement and use, such as customized bindings, traces of food and drink, penmanship exercises, and doodles. These marks offer a vast archive of information about the lives of books and their place in the lives of their readers.
Based on a survey of thousands of early printed books, Used Books describes what readers wrote in and around their books and what we can learn from these marks by using the tools of archaeologists as well as historians and literary critics. The chapters address the place of book-marking in schools and churches, the use of the "manicule" the ubiquitous hand-with-pointing-finger symbol , the role played by women in information management, the extraordinary commonplace book used for nearly sixty years by Renaissance England's greatest lawyer-statesman, and the attitudes toward annotated books among collectors and librarians from the Middle Ages to the present.
This wide-ranging, learned, and often surprising book will make the marks of Renaissance readers more visible and legible to scholars, collectors, and bibliophiles. Back to results.

John Dee: the politics of reading and writing in the English Renaissance
Robin Turner - manuscript. Challenging the conventional image of the isolated eccentric philosopher, Sherman situates Dee in a fresh context, revealing that he was a well-connected adviser to the academic, courtly and commercial circles of his day.
Additional Product Features Dewey Edition. An impressive reassessment of John Dee Dee himself is fascinating, and through him Sherman raises broader questions about how we read the past and the role of the intellectual within the Tudor patronage system. A model of clear, jargon-free writing, the book is highly recommended. By resituating John Dee in his library, Sherman has demystified the magus and offered us a completely new figure -- no longer the eccentric practitioner of a muddled Hermetic philosophy, but a scholarly agent of the commonweal.
