In volume: ownership inscription of Thomas Martin (1697-1771); ex libris Thomas Barber; ownership inscription of Emily Bagot. Purchased from Lux et Umbra on the Edwin J. Beinecke Book Fund, 2014. Script: gothica textualis. Decoration: rubricated. The volume contains 39 illuminated marginal initials, many with long marginal extensions incorporating animals or monsters. The disbound leaves contain several smaller initials. Some illuminated initials, and some leaves that most likely contained illuminated initials, appear to have been cut out in the disbound leaves. Binding: seventeenth-century Cambridge-style paneled calf, blind-tooled; rebacked.
Manuscript fragments, on parchment, of an English Bible. The bound volume consists of 75 leaves containing the complete texts of the Gospels, the Pauline Epistles and Hebrews. The disbound fragment consists of 62 leaves of Old Testament texts, including most of Jeremiah and Proverbs, most of Zachariah, and 1 and 2 Machabees.
