The previous Seminar in the Series considered
“Marginalia in Manuscripts”
(Parker Library, 24 June 1994).

[First published on 6 September 2016]

This seminar was “devoted to medieval manuscript fragments at the Parker Library and elsewhere, in both public and private collections.”  As usual, the existence of manuscripts in other collections relevant to the theme under consideration was taken into account, but now, thanks to their collector, our Associate Toshiyuki Takamiya, some of those manuscripts came to the Library for Seminar to see and to compare.

[Update in September 2017:  See the end of this post for news about the Takamiya Collection now at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.]
