This chapter turns from vernacular glossing traditions to the glossing of Douglas’s Eneados. It contrasts Douglas’s own glossing (preserved in Cambridge, Trinity College MS O.3.12) with the glosses to the first printed edition of his work, produced by William Copland in 1553. Whereas Douglas’s glosses foreground his own interventions in the text in such a way as to emphasize how the meaning of a text changes in the process of translation, those to Copland’s edition instead stress its timelessness and sententiousness. Responding to a commercial imperative to make the text attractive to potential readers, Copland’s glosses illustrate one potentially conservative effect of the use of print on glossing practices.

Keywords:   glossing, Gavin Douglas, Eneados, Cambridge, William Copland
