9780712358385: The Album Amicorum and the London of Shakespeare’s Time

The album amicorum, or book of friends, a precursor to modern-day autograph books, originated in Germany in the middle of the sixteenth century and very quickly became fashionable among students moving from one university to another in the course of their academic careers. Professors and fellow students made contributions to these albums, including inscriptions and illustrations, which were often by significant scholars or professional artists of the time. This book by June Schlueter is the first full-length study in English of the album amicorum and secures its place as an insightful but under-examined genre in the study of early modern culture. Schlueter focuses specifically on the many traces of Shakespeare’s London contained in alba amicorum during the period, as scholars traveled to London and recorded their impressions and their encounters with Londoners. These selections from alba amicorum provide a perspective on the culture, politics, religion, economics, and entertainment of the sixteenth century. These firsthand insights provide an integral historical picture of early modern England.

About the Author:

Review:

“June Schlueter’s account of the inventive materiality of these texts is fascinating. . . . Her meticulous labour in countless archives not only illuminate the album amicorum, but also suggest an expansively European sense of the early modern.” (Times Literary Supplement)

“June Schlueter’s The Album Amicorum and the London of Shakespeare’s Time secures a place in cultural history for a group of fascinating objects and a set of social practices from early modern Europe. . . . The book is filled with wonderful surprises . . . buttressed by the author’s obvious love for painstaking archival research and genealogy, and it should find readers across a variety of disciplines.” (Joseph Monteyne, SUNY Stony Brook Journal of British Studies)

“A very useful introductory and, in many respects, pioneering work that significantly adds to the cultural background of Shakespeare’s London.” (Martin W. Walsh, University of Michigan Sixteenth Century Journal)
