    Medieval ManuscriptsThe Huntington possesses one of the largest collections of British medieval manuscripts in the Western hemisphere. The majority of the Library's medieval holdings were produced in England or in Europe for the English market. They include nearly bound volumes of literary, historical, and religious materials, which contain about 2, separate texts.   The most effective tool for retrieving a book in medieval times was to give it a number and placing it in the correct sequential order on the shelf. It is still common practice in modern libraries, for good reason: as long as the shelver puts the object back in the right spot, you will be able to find it again quickly.

    7 The Book before 8 Survey of Scripts and Codicology, part 2, post Thursday. 9 Urban Book Production and Late Medieval Manuscripts (1) 10 Urban Book Production and Late Medieval Manuscripts (2) 11 Viewing of Manuscripts (Senate House Library) Friday. The Book of Sent Soví, composed around the middle of the fourteenth century, is the oldest surviving culinary text in Catalan. It is anonymous and, like the majority of medieval cookery books, is the product of a complex process of transmission, with multiple manuscript copies and readers who have left their mark on it.

      A book, it was said, was worth as much as a farm; unlike a farm, it was portable property that could easily be purloined. Valuables in all . © Division of Rare & Manuscript on of Rare & Manuscript Collections.
