The Boke of St Albans (1481)

Featured on Radio 4...

The Boke of St Albans, first published in 1481, proved a valuable source on Radio 4’s Questions, Questions on 21st July 2011, regarding a listener’s enquiry about the collective name for a certain group of animals. Written in part by Dame Juliana Berners, who was thought to have been a Prioress of Sopwell, this book – the first to be printed in English, featuring breeds of dogs – is mentioned in more detail under Hospitals/Cell Barnes.
