The Exeter Book ("Wanderer," "Wife's Lament," and many other poems in Anglo-Saxon/Old English):

Ed. Prin. London: Published for the Society of Antiquaries, 1842.


Codex Exoniensis.  A Collection of Anglo-Saxon Poetry, from a Manuscript in the Library of the Dean and Chapter of Exeter, with an English Translation, Notes, and Indexes.  London, Published for the Society of Antiquaries, 1842.

        Although the MS had been studied by individual antiquarians and later modern scholars like Humphrey Wanley, Robert Chambers, and Sir Frederick Madden, no published text was available to the general public until Benjamin Thorpe brought this edition to press. The Goucher Library copy came to us from the James Wilson Bright Collection, the teaching editions of the famous Johns Hopkins philologist.
