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.

Musical compositions for keyboard and voice

  • MS098
  • Item
  • ca. 1785-1790

The first 72 p. of the manuscript contain keyboard music with no composers identified. The vocal selections include works from the English stage such as "The Farmer", "The Village Maid", and "The Deserter."

Chronicon preciosum, or an account of English gold and silver money; the price of corn and other commodities; ... for six hundred years last past ... a fellow, who has an estate in land of inheritance ... vacate his fellowship on such condition, by Bishop Fleetwood

  • MS070
  • Item
  • 17--

This is a fair copy of Chapters 1-4 and the beginning of 5 of Fleetwood's book. It is presumed that it is copied from the 1745 edition and not the anonymous 1707 edition.

Collection of lives English and foreign

  • MS073
  • Item
  • 1674

The book is a series of different manuscripts, gathered together into one volume. The compiler has numbered all the pages and included an overall index. The pages come from various sources causing repeats of individuals and in a few places incomplete entries.

Liber Visionum

  • MS107
  • Item
  • 29 November 1461

Manuscript is in Latin, partly on vellum and partly on paper. The text consists of prayers and supplicatory rituals dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It is followed by the Office of the Angels, commencing at leaf 85, in a different hand. Nicholas Watson suggests in his essay in Clare Fanger's book Conjuring Spirits: Texts and Traditions of Medieval Ritual Magic (1990) that the manuscript is a partial copy of the Liber Visionum by Jean de Morigny, with the first part likely having been composed between 1304 and 1307 and the second part composed before 1315. Manuscript is bound in reinforced vellum with "Codex" stamped on spine and slipcased with "Prayer book. c 1460" stamped on spine.

Manuscript contains 12 illustrations and decorations executed by an amateurish other hand, all near the front.

Various works / Boethius

  • MS108
  • Item
  • ca. 1150

Latin manuscript in a transitional Gothic script showing some vestigial Carolingian features. The opening leaf contains an illuminated initial "C"; there are rubricated initials throughout. At leaf 41 there is a diagram of the 4 elements and their innerconnections. On the verso of leaf 42 there is an illuminated initial "O". Extensively annotated throughout in at least two subsequent Gothic hands.

Manuscript is bound in tooled leather dating from the 19th or early 20th century. Stamped on spine: Boetius. Sever. ms. sec XII. This expands to: Boethuis Severini. Twelfth century. Manuscript is slipcased with "Boetius. c1150" [sic.] stamped on spine.

Extract from Comiers' Pratique Curieuse, ou Les Oracles des Sibylles

  • MS114
  • Item
  • [17--?]

Item consists of a manuscript copy, written into a blank book, of an extract from the printed work by Claude Comiers entitled Pratique Curieuse, ou Les Oracles des Sibylles, Sur Chaque Question Proposée, the first edition of which was published in 1693. Subsequent editions were published into the late eighteenth century. It is unclear which edition is represented in this manuscript copy. An edition of 1750 matches this manuscript in terms of content and page numbering.

His book Pratique Curieuse uses tables and keys to determine the fortunes of the reader, based on calculations made through numbers associated with various elements. No description of how to make these calculations has been included in the portion contained in this manuscript copy.

Foliated [1], 1-170, [1], the final page being blank. These numbers were derived from the page numbers of the edition used to make the copy. The blank book was imposed in quarto format and bound with six bands. It is certain that this was a blank book, since, for example, the lines written on the first page transferred to the inside of the front cover before they dried. The original pale blue paper cover was at some point itself covered over, likely due to the apparent cracking of the spine, with a slightly thinner red wavy striped paper cover cut slightly too large, now also cracked and chipped along the spine. Paper has the watermark 'MI' with what appears to be a bell and an oak leaf surmounted by a crown. The only illustration is on p. 73 and depicts an angel's head with wings, drawn perhaps with the same pen and ink used to transcribe the book. Italic hand. Relatively modern and consistent orthography.

Comiers, Claude

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.

Medical recipies, and Latin poetry and prose

  • MS079
  • Item
  • 17--

The manuscript contains excerpts from all four books of Horace's Odes in Latin, with English notes. As well as words noted in the margin that may be keys to the text. After this follows similar notes on the first book of his Epodes, a page on his Carmen Saeculare, and two pages on his Satires. In the same hand are the summaries to the first two books of Livy's Ab Urbe Condita. The excerpt was dated 28 September 1713.

There is a second hand that added notes after the first, for various recipes including medicine, wine, and ink.
