World Philology demonstrates that the practice of philology is a worldwide phenomenon, found in literate cultures at many times and in many places, and sets the stage for a global comparative history of learned textual practices. The editors have assembled a broad range of eminent experts.—Christopher Minkowski, University of Oxford

This is a splendid book, conceived with courage and intelligence, and executed with grace and obstinacy. There is nothing at all like it, and people will not only use it constantly but will also wonder how they could have managed to get along earlier without ever having had anything like it.—Glenn W. Most, University of Chicago
