Google's Blogspot blogging templates allow for rarely-changing content, such as an "About" or a "Contact" page. I plan to experiment by using such pages to keep track of identified leaves and cuttings from dismembered books. In the past I have given lists of such leaves in blog-posts (e.g. here and here) and then added a series of addenda, when I learn of new leaves.
There are several dismembered books that I am actively working on as part of a catalogue of a private collection, and I hope that by making my lists available, it will encourage readers to send new information. To take one example, I currently know the whereabouts of only about a dozen of the 40-ish cuttings from the Burkhardt-Wildt Apocalypse, but I am sure that readers will know about others.
Among the manuscripts I anticipate tackling are:
- Spanish Antiphonary:
- Bernard Gui, Genealogy of the Kings of France:
- The Burckhardt-Wildt Apocalypse miniatures:
- Cuttings from a Gradual, from a Cistercian house perhaps in or near Cologne:
- The Ghistelles Hours:
- The Hungerford Hours:
- The Knyvett Hours:
- The Loredan Hours
- Prayerbook with miniatures by Jacques de Luxembourg
- Psalter from nothern England:
- Psalter from Seville:
- Psalter-Hours made for a nun
- Sacramentary from Kremsmunster:
