For all who study Anglo-Saxon literature, history, and culture, this series—created by a distinguished international team of scholars—provides access to original sources. The project aims to produce complete facsimiles of about five hundred manuscripts containing Old English.

Each issue typically contains eight to ten manuscripts, with an average total of 900–1000 folios (1800–2000 pages) on DVD. Each issue includes a full scholarly guide to the manuscripts, which are clearly identified by name, library, shelfmark, Ker/Gneuss numbers, and short title. The accompanying book of scholarly descriptions details manuscript history, annotates special features, and provides important codicological information, including collation, detailed contents, and selected bibliography.
