Keen traces the text of the medieval compendium De proprietatibus rerum, on its journey from 13th c. Europe to the personal library of the British botanist & naturalist Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820). She examines the work's diverse readerships to gain insight into how and why this particular text remained a living work among English readers for several centuries.
Some themes explored : patterns of book ownership; contemplation, memory, & allegory; orthodoxy, heterodoxy, & religious dissent; mendicancy, enclosure, & property; agricultural practices; sociocultural order & disruption; nationalism.
