    About Juliana Berners


    1. Juliana Berners, O.S.B or Barnes or Bernes born 1388 , English writer on heraldry, hawking and hunting, is said to have been prioress of the Priory of St Mary of Sopwell, near St Albans in Hertfordshire Her book on fishing was the first known book on this topic written by a woman.She was probably brought up at court and, after she adopted the monastic life, she still retained her love of hawking, hunting and fishing, and her passion for field sports She is the supposed author of the work generally known as The Boke of Saint Albans, of which the first and rarest edition was printed in 1486 by an unknown schoolmaster at St Albans It has no title page The only clue to the authorship of the Treatise, and the only documentary evidence of her, is an attribution at the end of the original 1486 book which reads Explicit Dam Julyans Barnes in her boke of huntyng Her name was changed by Wynkyn de Worde to Dame Julyans Bernes There is no such person to be found in the pedigree of the Berners family, but there is a gap in the records of the priory of Sopwell between 1430 and 1480 De Worde s edition fol 1496 , also without a title page, begins This present boke shewyth the manere of hawkynge and huntynge and also of diuysynge of Cote armours It shewyth also a good matere belongynge to horses wyth other comendable treatyses And ferder of the blasynge of armys as hereafter it maye appere This edition was adorned by three woodcuts, and included a Treatyse of fysshynge wyth an Angle, not contained in the St Albans edition.Joseph Haslewood, who published a facsimile of that of Wynkyn de Worde London, 1811, folio with a biographical and bibliographical notice, examined with the greatest care the author s claims to figure as the earliest woman author in the English language He assigned to her little else in the Boke except part of the treatise on hawking and the section on hunting It is expressly stated at the end of the Blasynge of Armys that the section was translatyd and compylyt, and it is likely that the other treatises are translations, probably from the French.
