Summary
This book explains how a change in writing - the introduction of word separation - led to the development of silent reading during the period from late antiquity to the fifteenth century. The greater part of this book describes in detail how the new format of word separation, in conjunction with silent reading, spread from the British Isles and took gradual hold in France, Germany, Italy, and Spain
