Agricultural Accounts

  • MS058
  • Item
  • 1672-1768

Bound manuscript in several different hands. Many leaves have been left blank. Title stamped on spine: "Mss. Account Book". The first four leaves are different in appearance and out of chronological order. They presumably were added at the time of binding.

Collectanea ex Rot. Pat. Reg. R2 in Arce Londonensi

  • MS124
  • Item
  • 1683 or later

Translated title: Collected from the Patent Rolls of King Richard II in the Tower of London. Late 17th century manuscript. The manuscript contains information copied out of the Chancery Patent Rolls which were recorded during the reign of Richard II (1377-1399). The entries are summaries, written in Latin, of those contained in the Rolls and are a selective collection of the material. The county associated with each entry has been noted in the margin throughout and occasionally references “m.#” possibly to the Membrane it was from or as a reference to a different record.

Physical description: Folio. Binding is from the 18th century, full-leather, calf, which has been blind tooled with a Cambridge panel. The spine was later re-backed in sheep skin in the 19th century, likely February 1860, when the manuscript was sent for repairs by Bellamy Burton (repair slip has been sewn in between pp.8-9).

The manuscript is written on laid paper with a couple of different watermarks, see pp. 57 and 211.

Included with the manuscript is pp.181-182 of The Graphic, from 3 August 1912.

Ten Sermons

  • MS060
  • Item
  • 1690

Stamped on spine: Sermons. Mss. The only sermon that is dated is sermon no. 7, preached at Seaham on 13 April 1690. A reader on 27 Oct. 1847 noted the following: "Curious and contains some good things. The writer is neither Puritan nor Papist".

Hymn to be sung by the charity children

  • MS138
  • Item
  • 17--

The text of the hymn begins "Did Jesus weep for human woes". The date "c1780's" has been written in pencil by an unknown hand. Research Collections has two broadsides containing hymns. One is titled "The First Hymn Sung by the Charity Children" and is dated 7 July 1713. The other one is "The Second Hymn Sung by the Charity Children" and is dated 20 Sept. 1914. The text of the broadsides does not match this manuscript.

Oswald Mosley book of devotions

  • MS072
  • Item
  • by 1727

The fonds consists of a bound manuscript, 234 pages in length, containing prayers appropriate for different occasions, times of day, Sabbath prayers, and so on. There is an index on the inside front and back covers. Also written on the inside cover is: This book of devotions in the handwriting of Oswald Mosley, Esq. (father of the first Sir Oswald) who died A.D. 1726 in the 87th year of his age. Oswald Mosley." The book had been started by at least 1707, which appears on one of the end papers, but the precise date, other than completion before the end of Oswald's life, is unknown.

Pasted on the inside front cover is a bookplate containing the Mosley family coat of arms, with the family motto "Mos Legem Regit" followed by "Sir Oswald Mosley Bart., Rolleston House". Stamped on spine is "Prayers Mss."

Mosley, Oswald

Poems, prayers, and devotional writing

  • MS074
  • Item
  • 1700-17--

Most of the leaves are blank. A bookplate containing an armorial crest and motto, "Deo avers leo vinci tur", is pasted on the inside cover. An earlier examiner of the manuscript tentatively identified it as Newenham of Coolmore, County Cork. Stamped on spine: Poetry.

Bhāgavata Purāṇa [Bhagavata Purana]

  • MS128
  • Item
  • [17-?]-[18-?]

The manuscript consists of twelve cantos (skandhas). Text on highly burnished paper is in india ink with illustrations and miniatures in gouache with gold pigment; borders in gold leaf. The text is preceded by twenty-five miniatures. There are forty-eight miniatures interspersed with the text which is lavishly illustrated. Sacred texts in rolled manuscript form were first created in eighteenth-century Kashmir. In the nineteenth century these manuscripts were created in northern India, particularly in Alwar and Jaipur. It is more likely that this manuscript is nineteenth rather than eighteenth century.

The manuscript is housed in a cylindrical silver container. The initials S.B. below the image of griffin are engraved on the lid. Family legend holds that the initials are those of an officer who saved the life of the Nawab Wazir of Oudh and was presented with the manuscript as a token of gratitude. During a hunting expedition the Nawab had been attacked by a tiger.

Megillah. Book of Esther scroll

  • MS129
  • Item
  • [17-?]-[18-?]

The scroll is written on tanned animal hide, likely deerskin, mounted on a wooden handle. Script appears to be of Sephardic origin and thus its original provenance is likely to be western North Africa.

London Tea Merchant's Ledger

  • MS104
  • Item
  • 1715-1720

The ledger lists customers and their orders for tea, coffee, chocolate, tobacco (usu. snuff), and other goods. An index at the beginning references pages. Inscribed on the spine is T.T. Leidger B 1715. This is repeated on the front cover, but appears to say TI instead of TT.

Bill of sale [Kauff-Brief.]

  • MS130
  • Item
  • 3 June 1716

Item consists of a bill of sale [Kauff-Brief] by Andreas Roessner, burgess and basketmaker at Kelheim [Kerbelmacher zu Kelhaimb] in Bavaria, and Maria his wife. The other party to the sale is named Christopher [Nachhilter?], burgess and soap-boiler [Saiffensieder] at Kelheim. The bill ends with the date 3 June 1716. Afterward there is an authorizing signature by Johann Albrecht Notthaft von Weissentein, who acquired the lands of Affecking, now part of the city of Kelheim, through marriage. Notthaft died on 9 August 1727 at the age of 79.

The bill is an unbound manuscript written in ink, now faded to light brown, executed on a single sheet of laid paper in folio format. The paper bears a stamp in black ink, 3 cm in diameter, reading “(VI) Kreizer-Papier,” a paper manufacture which dates to about the end of the seventeenth century. It also bears a watermark of a fleur-de-lis. Beside the signature of Notthaft, there is a black wax seal, 2 cm in diameter, depicting a coat-of-arms surmounted by a crown with the letters “HANFVW” [ie Hans Albrecht Notthaft, Freiherr von Weissenstein?]. The bill has been folded numerous times and bears the title “Kauff Brief” with comments and the date 3 June 1716 on the outer fold. The language appears to be mainly High German with some dialectic peculiarities.

Recueill de divers pieces

  • MS100
  • Item
  • ca. 1725-1825

This item consists of three manuscripts bound into one volume. Stamped on spine: Recueil de diver pieces.

Genaelogy and Lineage Chart of the Lords of Gera [Genealogia und Stammen-Tafel der Herren von Gera]

  • MS115
  • Item
  • [1727]-[after 1755]

Item comprises a manuscript codex, bound but without covers, completed by a single unidentified scribe sometime after 1755. It contains selections concerning the lords of Gera copied from Johann Georg Adam von Hoheneck’s printed books on the genealogy of Austrian lords, with scribal additions from an unknown source.

The first and largest portion of the copied text replicates title page and ff. 139-148 of Johann Georg Adam, Freiherr von Hoheneck, The Laudable Lords, Noble Houses of the Arch-Duchy of Austria on the Enns, as Prelates, Lordships, Knights and Cities, or, Genealogical and Historical Description ... First Volume [Die Löbliche Herren Herren-Stände Deß Ertz-Hertzogthumb Oesterreich ob der Enns Als Prälaten, Herren, Ritter, und Städte, oder, Genealog- und Historische Beschreibung ... Erster Theil ...] (Passau: Gabriel Mangold, 1727). This portion appears in the manuscript [1r-11v] under the title “Genealogy and Lineage Chart of the Lords of Gera from the Time They Came into this Land” [“Genealogia und Stammen-Tafel Der Herren von Gera von der Zeit, Sie in die es Land kommen”].

The second portion comes from the addenda printed in the same book, the first volume of Die Löbliche Herren Herren Stände, on f. 695. It appears in the manuscript [12r] under the title “Additions and Correction” [“Addenda et Corrigenda”].

The third and final portion derives from f. 15 of Johann Georg Adam, Freiherr von Hoheneck, Supplement or Addendum to the First Part of the Genealogical and Historical Description ... continued until the End of 1732 [Supplementum oder Anhang, zu dem ersten Theill, der Genealog- und Historischen Beschreibung ... continuirt bis Ende 1732] (Passau: Gabriel Mangold, 1733). It appears in the manuscript [12v-13v] under this title, sub-titled “Gera.” At least one addition from a source other than Hoheneck has been made by the scribe in this section, as the last entry mentions the death of Johann Ernst von Gera in 1755, the year after Hoheneck's own death.

The remaining leaves [14r-20v] are blank.

The manuscript is inscribed on laid paper, bearing two separate watermarks, “MI” and a floral motif, and has been arranged in folio format and bound with string. There are no covers. The pages bear folio numbers taken from the printed originals on the recto of each leaf. With full colour painted illustration of the coat-of-arms of Gera [2r]. The text is written in High German. The manuscript bears a title page which replicates the title page of the first volume of Hoheneck’s principal book, suggesting that there was no original intention to append the text from the supplemental volume. This is, however, contradicted by the fact that the ink and penmanship are consistent throughout, suggesting that the whole manuscript was accomplished together at one time.

Hoheneck, Johann Georg Adam, Freiherr von

George Arnet manuscript

  • MS001
  • Item
  • 1732-1742

Mr. Fruchard was a London merchant.
