Walter Hilton, The Scale of Perfection, Book II. A Critical Edition based on British Library MSS Harley 6573 and 6579.
Oxford University Press, 2017. 550p. Hardback. Series: Early English Text Society Original Series. Sargent...provides two surviving tables of chapters in the text from two different manuscripts, a full set of explanatory notes, a glossary, and an index of quotations and allusions. The result is not only a useful edition of an important text, but also, given Sargent's extensive reflection on his editorial approach, a significant contribution to editorial theory in Middle English studies.
