Research Topic A Scholarly Edition of Selected Works of the English Librarian Richard James (1591-1638)
Research Summary Richard James was librarian to one of early modern England's most significant private libraries, that of Sir Robert Cotton. However, James' experiences as a travel writer, linguist, poet and cleric have been neglected. This project will produce scholarly editions of three of James' original manuscripts, thus revealing new information about his life and networks.
