Trevisa's encyclopaedia, the first to appear in English, enshrines many basic medieval ideas which are reflected in English literature well into the seventeenth century. The two-volume text of Trevisa's translation "On the Properties of Things", published in 1975, quickly established itself as a reference work for scholars working in many disciplines on the late Middle Ages. This third volume, comprising introduction, commentary, and glossary, offers a useful tool for understanding the printed text and the manuscripts on which it is based. Historians of the Middle Ages, and all those interested in medieval literature should find this book of great interest.
