Medieval and Historical Manuscripts Collection


Our small collection of medieval books and fragments includes pages ("leaves") from books typically found in medieval libraries during the periods known as the High Middle Ages (1000–1300 CE) and Late Middle Ages (1300-1500 CE.) Most of our manuscripts were produced in the great centers of manuscript production in France, Flanders, and Italy. A few others come from Germany, Spain, and England. Some are text-only pages, some filled with music, others with splendid decorations.
