Society Publications

Early English Text Society
Reprints early English texts, especially those only available in manuscript. Most of its volumes are in Middle English and Old English. Its goal in a report of the first year of their existence was "on the one hand, to print all that is most valuable of the yet unprinted MSS. in English, and, on the other, to re-edit and reprint all that is most valuable in printed English books, which from their scarcity or price are not within the reach of the student of moderate means."
