The scholar and antiquarian John Stow (15251605) is a figure of crucial importance to our understanding of medieval and early modern English history, literature, and culture. His Survey of London, a rich account of metropolitan topography and tradition, is still an invaluable resource for scholars of the early modern city, and his Chronicles of English history paved the way for the famous historical projects of Raphael Holinshed and William Camden, and shaped the historical consciousness of early modern dramatists and poets such as Shakespeare and Samuel Daniel. We also owe some of the most important copies of major medieval texts to Stows endeavours as an obsessive serchar of antiquities of divinite ... and poetry.

This volume collects together wide-ranging and exciting new essays on Stow. Its contributors consider the feuds and friendships at the heart of the Tudor historiographical project, the construction of a political and religious culture, and a topographical history, for Elizabethan London, the early modern invention of the medieval past, and the manuscript and printed books written and collected by this industrious and important maker of English history.
