Although in some respects a victim of its own enormous scope (for example, Irvine does not mention the considerable controversy over the dating of the Techne of Dionysius Thrax which ought to have a profound impact on any analysis of ancient grammar), this book represents a significant and distinctly innovative contribution to our understanding of texts and textuality in the Middle Ages.
