Dziś kolejny odcinek od Lisy Fagin Davis. Tym razem o niewielkich (śladowych) zbiorach w trzech stanach – Północna Dakota, Montana i Idaho. Wszystko po drodze do Wyoming. Nawiasem mówiąc, zabawne jest to, że wiele lat temu, gdy bawiłem się w Indian i wszystkie te nazwy stanów brzmiały dla mnie pociagająco, egzotycznie i stać chciałem u boku dzielnych Czerwonoskórych, nigdy bym nie przypuścił, że czytać będę o przechowywanych w tych dalekich stronach średniowiecznych rękopisach.

Manuscript Road Trip

After several weeks of internet sleuthing and after corresponding with a half dozen very helpful curators and faculty members, I can happily report that there are in fact medieval manuscript leaves to be found in two states previously unrepresented in the Directory of Institutions in the United States and Canada with Pre-1600 Manuscript Holdings. The collections in Montana and Idaho described below will be included in the next update of the Directory, to be uploaded in early 2014. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover today, so let’s get started!

Blog mapFirst, the bad news. In 1935, the only  medieval manuscripts in North Dakota as recorded by de Ricci  were „a few leaves” belonging to one Albert Yoder of Grand Forks, ND. Unfortunately these are untraced, and none of the other major collections in the state report any manuscript holdings. So if there are any manuscripts in North Dakota, I haven’t…

Following David Howlett’s tour de force this evening, when he spoke at the Bodleian Library in Oxford on ‘Making the Dictionary’ to an audience of a hundred guests from across Oxford, the UK, and Europe, the present Editor of the Dictionary formally launched the final fascicule of the Dictionary, number XVII covering Syrina to Z, and presented one of the first copies to his predecessor, marking the completion of this century-long enterprise.

Further events will follow tomorrow and on Saturday, and reports and pictures on all will follow here in due course.

Kolejny odcienk Manuscript Road Trip.

Manuscript Road Trip

Blog map

Before we head north into South Dakota, I want to call your attention to a manuscript road trip undertaken by the great scholar Dom Jean Mabillon (1632-1707). In the late seventeenth century, Mabillon travelled throughout Europe examining manuscripts in monastic and other libraries, and his handwritten notes are now available online through Gallica, the digital library of the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF MS Lat. 14187) (my thanks to @Erik_Kwakkel for tweeting this news!). On folio 16v, for example, Mabillon writes (in Latin): „[On the] 12th of August [1683] we came to Ottobeuren [in Bavaria], where there is an abbey of our Order…The church in that place is dedicated to the martyred saints Alexander and Theodore… The library has many manuscript codices.” That’s putting it mildly. Ottobeuren was a major center of manuscript production; here‚s one example of what those monks were up to in the twelfth century alone.

Although this exhausts the current funding, it is hoped that we will be able to repeat this competition in future years. The organisers also thank the adjudication panel for their hard work and willingness to help out.
