Description [MANUSCRIPTS-LEAVES] A group of leaves or portions of leaves, dating from the late 8th to the 16th century, most extracted from bindings and now laid into mats. The collection includes a number of fine examples of Carolingian scripts. Included are approximately fifteen leaves, many extremely early, that are largely intact. As well, there are about twenty smaller fragments. Condition varies. This collection includes a fine range of leaves from Carolingian and Ottonian manuscripts, and represents an unusual opportunity to acquire a palaeographical study collection with a significant number of examples of early scripts. A full set of images are available upon request. or may be viewed at
