4. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 19999
Description: - ff. 274 - Bound in 1903 by Douglas Cockerell, in wooden boards with red morocco spine decorated in gilt and blind with the initials of Michael Tomkinson, 2 3-part braided straps to catches on the front cover. Rust marks from chain hasps on top and bottom center of f. iii, once the pastedown. - Written during the last years of the thirteenth century possibly in Avignon or Montpellier, or by a southern scribe working in Paris, and painted in Paris by Maître Honoré. Concerning a similar group of legal manuscripts, see the review by C. Nordenfalk in Zeitschrift für Kunstgeschichte 43 (1980) 318-37, especially pp. 336-37, of A. Melnikas, The Corpus of the Miniatures in the Manuscripts of the Decretum Gratiani (Rome 1975); another manuscript written by a southern scribe and illuminated by Maître Honoré is Cambridge, Mass., Harvard University, Houghton Library, fMS Typ 228, Augustine, De civitate dei. A terminus post quem for the copying of HM 19999 is the date of composition of the gloss on the Decretals, i.e. 1282, as noticed in the explicit on f. 262. Contemporary notes of an early owner in a French hand, but soon acquired by an Englishman, as shown by the numerous notes in early fourteenth century anglicana, and by the miniature added by an English artist on f. 121v. In the spandrels of the arches in this miniature are what may represent coats of arms: gules, a fess or (in the 2 outer spandrels); azure, a cross saltire or (in the center); this last may be intended for the arms of St. Albans abbey, although a St. Albans provenance seems doubtful and the volume was not listed by Ker, MLGB; the choice of Agnes in the miniature suggests particular devotion on the part of an individual or institutional owner. Owned before 1436 by William Meelys, rector of Tarporley, Cheshire: on f. iv verso, "Decretales apparate F. de dono Magistri Willelmi Meelys, rectoris de Tarpurley pro anima sua ex procuracione __?___ David Bromfelde anno domini Mo cccc xxxvi"; on the contemporary back flyleaf, "Constat Willelmo Meeles [cancelled: "1450"?]." A draft of a letter on f. iv recto includes a mention of Chester and the date 1470. In a fifteenth century hand on the back flyleaf, "Percy [?] de Burscho [?] desiderat emere istum librum cum bello troianorum et libro de passione christi," and, in the upper margin of f. 274, in possibly the same hand, "frater p., precio 1 x 1i." Belonged to Richard Bulkeley, archdeacon of Merioneth (1483-ca. 1500) and Anglesey (1504 until his death in 1524); see J. Le Neve, Fasti Ecclesiae Anglicanae 1300-1541, pt. XI, The Welsh Dioceses, comp. by B. Jones (University of London 1965) 10-11, and Emden, BRUO, p. 303: on f. 274v, over an erasure (?), "Constat ricardo bulkeley archidiacono Meryoneth"; on f. iv recto, "Precario conceditur domino Iohanni Gwyn ad tempus per Ricardum bulkeley archidiaconum Anglesey," and "Constat fratri Ricardo Bulkeley Teste reddatur ad Signum ea quod servi." Belonged to John Ruskin (1819-1900) by 1857, when he discussed its decoration in his Elements of Drawing (London 1857) 301-02; Ruskin's bookplate on the inside front cover. His estate inherited by Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Severn, who sold this manuscript ca. 1903 to Michael Tomkinson (1841-1922?), of Franche Hall, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, for whom the book was rebound; sold by Tomkinson in 1911 to C. W. Dyson Perrins (1864-1958). Dyson Perrins sale, Sotheby's, 29 November 1960, lot 109 with reproductions of the miniatures on ff. 1, 64, 122, 173v on pl. 15.
