Media Reviews
The best introduction to the field.
-Literary Research Guide
As a medievalist and a textuist, David Greetham is a Renaissance man. He has written the best comprehensive, modern, single-volume introduction to textual scholarship. Its range of reference is impressive, the style is lucid and engaging, and the product is scholarly and informative. I am especially grateful for Textual Scholarship because such is Greetham's achievement I will not toy with the notion of attempting such a work myself. There is no need for a similar work to be written this century and a long way into the next.

Everything you've ever wanted to know about textual scholarship is contained in this marvelous volume.
-Religious Studies Review
This is a splendid book. Its aims are ambitious and its scope comprehensive. Its successes are significant.... It is an honor to join in welcoming this book into the world of scholarship. It is a fine addition to the small shelf of first-class books on textual study.
The descriptions of bibliographic methods and processes are as good as any I have read, and Greetham has the teacher's knack for anticipating and meeting in his audience the need for examples and definitions.... Impressive... readable and worth reading...a fine source for information.
