    Acquisition Information

    The Department of Archives and Special Collections probably acquired this collection of late medieval and early modern manuscript leaves from Bruce Ferrini, a dealer in rare books and manuscripts. Accession number 1997.3.

    Collection Description

    The Bruce Ferrini Liturgical Manuscript Leaf Collection consists of fifteen manuscript leaves from liturgical and scholastic texts, and the Bible. Liturgical texts include breviaries, antiphonaries, and books of hours. Selections from the Bible are from both the Old and New Testament. The manuscripts were orginally produced from the thirteenth through the sixteenth centuries. Some manuscripts were written in late medieval book hands, eg, Gothic littera bastarda and Gothic textura quadrata. There are also samples of Gothic script from the first half of the thirteenth century. Geographically, the leaves were produced in England, northern France, the Netherlands, Flanders, and Italy. Some of the leaves are illuminated.
    Descriptions in the box and folder list come from the dealer, Bruce Ferrini. Numbers for the manuscripts found in the box and folder list were assigned by the same party.

    Arrangement

    No fixed order to the collection's manuscripts leaves exists. They are housed in individual covers, with captions on front describing the type of codex from which the infividual leaf came, along with dates, place, and paleographical and historical information. Numbers for the manuscripts found in the box and folder list were assigned by Bruce Ferrini, the manuscript and book dealer who owned the collection.
