15. San Marino, Huntington Library, EL 26 A 13
Description: - ff. ii + iv + 127 + i + i - Bound, ca. 1840, in purple morocco, gold tooled with the Bridgewater crest stamped on front and back covers; marbled endpapers; gilt edges. - Partially (ff. ii verso-iii) copied by, and belonged to, John Shirley (ca. 1366-1456); his "bookplate" on f. v verso, "iesu mercy/ margarete & beautrice/ ma ioye M [or A? surmounted by a crown] Shirley." See A. I. Doyle, "More Light on John Shirley," Medium Aevum 30 (1961) 93-101, and, for a brief mention of manuscripts connected with Shirley, E. P. Hammond, English Verse between Chaucer and Surrey (Duke University Press 1927) 191-94. See also Troilus and Criseyde: Geoffrey Chaucer, a facsimile of Corpus Christi College Cambridge MS 6 with introductions by M. B. Parkes and E. Salter (Cambridge 1978) 10-11 with a plate reproducing Lydgate's couplet on the King, Queen and People from 3 Shirley manuscripts (including EL 26 A 13, art. 1); A. I. Doyle, "English Books In and Out of Court from Edward III to Henry VII," in English Court Culture in the Later Middle Ages, ed. V. J. Scattergood and J. W. Sherborne (London 1983) 175 n. 34 points out that the queen in Lydgate's poem is Henry VI's mother, Catherine, and so could be 1422-37. Another plate of Shirley's hand in P. J. Croft, Autograph Poetry in the English Language (New York 1973) vol. 1, n. 2 from London, Brit. Lib., Add. 16165. Shirley probably filled in "Aluredo Corneburgh de Camera Regis" on f. 115; this leaf reproduced in Doyle, "English Books. . .," pl. 17. Avery Cornburgh, whose name occurs in varying forms on f. iv ("aure kornbrou" or "awrese") was a Yeoman of the Chamber to Edward IV; see A. R. Myers, The Household of Edward IV (Manchester 1959) 243, n. 60. He married Beatrice Lynne between 1459 and 1467; her sister, Margaret Lynne, had become Shirley's second wife between 1421 and 1441. The names of Margaret and Beatrice are incorporated into Shirley's "bookplate" on f. v verso; a sketch on f. iv of a griffin passant may refer to Lynne, another on the same page of a boar may refer to Cornburgh; see Doyle, "English Books. . .," p. 177. Other fifteenth century notes include on ff. iii verso and iv verso, "Elyzabeth Gaynesford," and on ff. iii verso and iv, "necolas gaynsford" (also spelled "gaynford"); this Nicholas Gaynsford may have been the Usher to the Chamber of Edward IV and his Queen; see J. C. Wedgwood and A. Holt, History of Parliament (London 1936-38) 1:368-69. On f. iii verso, "Ryght truste and welbeloued Suster J.P." On back flyleaf verso, s.

On f. v, pressmark "Z:/2./2." in the hand of John Egerton (1622-86), 2nd Earl of Bridgewater, with the last number corrected to "10" at a later date, possibly by John Egerton (1646-1701), 3rd Earl of Bridgewater. Printed on a square yellow slip of paper glued to f. ii verso, "MSS. No. 4." Acquired by Henry E. Huntington in 1917 with the Bridgewater Library (see pp. 5-7). - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H. Rouse et al., Guide to Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the Huntington Library (San Marino, 1989). De Ricci, 131-32.

Amen" ( Hanna, "Addenda," n. 25 ), and "William Downes mee tenet"; on f. 21, rough strapwork initials, "W[illiam] D[ownes]"; on f. 76, s. XVI#^ex#, possession note of Phillip Downes. Notes of an antipapist, s. XVI#^med#, across the upper margins of ff. 30, 60, 66, 77, 91 and 102: "Vacantur nomina paparum, Thomas Bekett & no seynt." Sixteenth century notes on f. 171 on the ownership of church lands: "The personage of Gwendrun & Stythians in ye county of Cornewall percell of ye possessions of ye late monastary of Rewley" and "The personage of Croppreadin in ye county of oxforde in the tenure of one mr chancye by leace for xxiti yeares grauntid unto hym by kinge Edward ye sixt in ye fyfte yeare of his raigne & paiethe by yeare lvili." The manuscript owes its appellation of "Stafford Gower" to the description of it by H. J. Todd, Illustration of the Lives and Writings of Gower and Chaucer (London 1810) 108-09, while in the possession of George Granville Leveson-Gower, 2nd Marquis of Stafford (aftw. 1st Duke of Sutherland), who had inherited the Bridgewater Library from his uncle, Francis Egerton, 3rd and last Duke of Bridgewater. The designation was used by Macaulay in his edition of the text (1900-01). Bridgewater bookplate on front pastedown and embossed Bridgewater library stamp on f. ii and f. 1. - C. W.

17. San Marino, Huntington Library, EL 26 C 09
Description: - ff. ii + iv + 232 + iv + ii - Present binding; description by Maria Fredericks, 24 Aug. 2003: Removed from previous modern green goatskin binding in 1994, re-bound in 1995 in the Huntington Library's Conservation Department by guest conservator Anthony G. Cains (Trinity College, Dublin), with the assistance of Maria Fredericks, Rare Book Conservator at the Huntington. Sewn on seven double flax cords using original 15th-century stations. Boards of quarter-sawn English oak laced on and pegged, covered with alum-tawed calfskin. Lacing-in pattern derived from evidence found on original pastedowns. Pastedowns bound in but not adhered to boards. See also Anthony G. Cains, "The Bindings of the Ellesmere Chaucer," Huntington Library Quarterly 58 (1996) 127-157. Note: The two modern parchment flyleaves that were part of the collation in 1989 are no longer bound in the codex, but are boxed with the old binding. Previous binding: Bound probably in 1911 by Riviere and Son in dark green morocco, with the Egerton arms stamped in gold on the front cover; vellum doublures; gilt edges. Manly and Rickert, 1:149, have repeated A. Egerton's statement in the introduction to the facsimile, that the manuscript was brought from Ashridge to London in 1802 for rebinding. This date, however, must refer to the earlier binding, since the designation "Riviere and Son" came into use only in 1881, and since the style of the binding places it in the early twentieth century. The manuscript was removed from its previous binding in or before 1911, to permit photography page by page in flat condition for the facsimile; the rebinding after photography was evidently the occasion for the work of Riviere and Son. Gilt but uneven edges demonstrate that the book was trimmed prior to 1911; stains on the recto of the first contemporary front flyleaf and on the verso of the last contemporary flyleaf (former pastedowns) from leather turn-ins of a previous binding. - C.

18. San Marino, Huntington Library, EL 34 A 01
Description: - ff. i + 166 + i - Bound, s. XVI, in French dark brown calf with a blind stamped design; varnished; worn gilt edges. - Written in France in the second half of the fifteenth century for owners whose names may have been Claude and Catherine, as indicated by the frequent use of the initials C. and C. in the decoration, and by the possible owner representation in the miniature of St. Claude, f. 155; the name of Catherine is suggested, less firmly, by the rather uncommon prominence given to Catherine of Siena, f. 158. The manuscript was acquired by Henry E. Huntington as part of the Bridgewater Library which he purchased in 1917. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

21. San Marino, Huntington Library, EL 34 B 06
Description: - ff. ii + 100 + ii - Bound, ca. 1840, in brown calf with the Bridgewater crest blind stamped on both covers. - Belonged to John Gunthorpe, dean of Wells, who was in Italy in the early 1460s (d. 1498); later owned by "Heron," when it was possibly bound with a Horace. The ownership of Gunthorpe and "Heron" is attested to by a note on f. 100v: "iuvenalis olim gunthorpi vuelli quondam decani, nunc autem heroni." Three Bridgewater pressmarks in the upper margin of f. 1:"__?___3" and "X3," both in the hand of John Egerton (1579-1649), 1st Earl of Bridgewater, both now cancelled, and "S:8./1." in the hand of the third Earl (1646-1701). - C.
