Saskatchewan railway construction collection

  • RC0521
  • Coleção

The b&w photographs depict the survey and construction of secondary rail lines in South Saskatchewan from April to July 1930. They were removed from several pages of an album with the heading “C.P.R. Survey”. Beneath this heading was a photograph of Engine 562. The photographs were taken in Coderre, Alma Lake, Fife Lake, Rockglen and surrounding area. Some of the photographs were printed in Regina. Most of the photographs have descriptive captions written on the verso in pen and pencil in seven different hands with separate numbering sequences. They include photographs of the following: tent camps, pile drivers, horses and wagons (bulldozing, grading), people (including the Chinese cook Jim, Cederic White Rodman, Eddie Sellors, George Lowry, “your son” and “me”), laying of ties and steel, a CPR construction coal shed, surveying, Lake Alma, Coderre, Fife Lake and Rockglen. The rail locations are all south of Regina. The lines that run through Coderre and Alma Lake are abandoned. Rockglen still has a working CPR line although there is an abandoned line just to the west. Fife Lake does not appear on this abandoned rail lines map.

C.C. Brant fonds

  • RC0654
  • Arquivo
  • 1919-1922

The fonds consists of four letters written to John and Christine McCampbell. All the letters are signed C.C.B. Three are written from Whitney while the fourth is from “Brant and Walker, Z Cross Ranch, Fort St. John, B.C.” The assumption has been made that Christine is his sister and John his brother-in-law, although he does address them as “brother and sister”. The McCampbells are living in Uxbridge Ont. in 1919 and in Thessalon, Ont. in 1922. The most interesting letter is the one written from Fort St. John. He predicts that “this country is going to boom” before too long.

Traité sur les fabriques

  • MS084
  • Item
  • after 1802

The text of the manuscript gives M. le Juge Panet's decision about the right of the parish priest and the church wardens of St. Croix to control the disposition of church pews. The judge is possibly Philippe Panet (1791-1855), appointed judge of the Court of the King's Bench for the district of Quebec in 1832, suspended 1838-1840, and returned to the bench, 1840-1855. Pasted inside the front cover is a news clipping about the case.

Antiphonal and Breviary Miscellany

  • MS116
  • Item
  • [15-?]-[17-?]

Item consists of six groupings of texts, Fragments A-G, removed from one or more antiphonals and one breviary. These original books likely originated in the vicinity of Catalonia and Aragon, were perhaps associated with the Franciscan or Dominican orders, and were probably produced during the sixteenth to early seventeenth centuries. The fragmentary nature, haphazard selection and non-chronological arrangement of the removed texts suggests that, in their current state, they were not arranged for liturgical use.

The scribal hands are in Gothic textura rotunda. Fragments A, D, and F, in which the letterforms are less rounded and more vertical than in the other fragments, come from a single codex, with the same hand and illumination style. One portion of text in Fragment C has been erased, with the same text rewritten over it in a later hand, dating to the eighteenth century. The quality of lettering varies between fragments. There are several illuminated or historiated initials, but in general the scribal and illumination work is often simple, rough or incomplete, especially in Fragments B and C.

The covers consist of contemporary wooden boards covered with deteriorated leather, fitted for five cords. Nothing remains of the spine, but remnants of the cords and traverse spine linings are extant. A metal clasp hinge remains on the front cover at the centre of the foreedge, and a wooden boss is nailed to the back cover in the same spot.

Folio format. The fragments are generally disbound and were likely not ever bound to the present covers. There are remnants of an original seven-cord binding on the spine edge of many gatherings, and wear on the leaves is also inconsistent with the present boards, which might have been employed more as an unattached protective case than as a binding proper. Fragments B and C are affixed to each other by an adhesive at the spine, as are Fragments E and F. A group of leaves, from part-way through Fragment B to the end of Fragment C, have been bound more recently at the upper margin with metal wire. Ink has transferred from portions of text on the first leaf in Fragment A and the last leaf in Fragment F to the front and back covers respectively, and black residue from the covering leather has been deposited on the same leaves, showing that the fragments have been kept in the present arrangement within the unattached boards probably for a considerable time. Some leaves have been cut or otherwise damaged, especially in the leaves bound by the wire, which have a cut from the spine edge inward into the text. The fragments have not been foliated as a single item, but, for the purposes of this finding aid, they have been treated as such [fols. 1-14, 15-38]. Fol. 9 is detached, and fol. 15 is at present completely lacking.

Manuscript fragment, possibly Celtic

  • MS118
  • Item

One leaf, fragment of Celtic (?) ms., in Latin, with illuminated capitals on each side of the leaf. The leaf has been used as printer's waste inside the binding of another book - the marks of the paste down are clearly evident.

  • Item

A mnemonic guide to Gratian's Decretum, in 101 numbered lines, followed by 35 numbered "causa"; reference on the verso of the final leaf to the first letter of Blessed Jerome, on 4 large sheets of vellum. Marks of being used as paste down clearly visible. Custodial marks of a previous repository present on each leaf. Rubrication of some capitals and marginal drolleries.
