First paragraph in lieu of abstract: In 1456, the middle-aged Master William Wey, bursar of Eton College, set out on the first of several pilgrimages which were to take him to Santiago de Compostela, Rome, and twice to Jerusalem. His descriptions of these journeys survive in a single manuscript, Bodleian Library, MS. Bodl. 565, which has not thus far been the subject of a detailed study. This has allowed the perpetuation of a binding error, despite two separate publications of its contents. This link to the Teaching the Codex website outlines the binding error, but not my analysis of the scribe: https://teachingthecodex.wordpress.com/2016/07/08/teachable-features-1-binding-error-ms-bodl-565/
