1. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 57340
Description: - ff. i + 149 + i - Bound, s. XX, in polished brown leather, the covers with a blind triple fillet and a blind-stamped central panel, the plain spine (no title) with four raised bands; the pastedowns and flyleaves preserved from a previous binding, s. XVIII(?), with part of a fleur-de-lis watermark. - Written apparently in Utrecht, to judge by the script, decoration, Office of the Dead and some of the original red feasts in the calendar; apparently for an English owner, to judge by the Sarum Use of the Office of the Virgin and the English saints in the calendar. John Newsom (?) of the parish of Whitkirk in Yorkshire (? see below), by 1417 according to an entry in the calendar at 17 March about the birth of a daughter. William Skargyl (d. ca. 1484), by 1434 according to an entry in the calendar at 13 May about the birth of a son; the Skargills/Scargills are a well-documented Yorkshire family: the William in this inscription is presumably the son of the William Skargill of Thorpe Stapleton, who founded a chantry chapel in 1449 in Whitkirk parish church, for his own soul and that of his wife Constance and son William; this son William was presumably the William Skargill of Lede/Lead (about 10 miles north-east of Whitkirk), whose will was proved on 5 August 1484, while the son mentioned in the inscription is doubtless the William Skargill who was born in 1434 in Gawthorp (about 10 miles south-west of Whitkirk), and who married an Elizabeth Gascoigne of Burnby, Yorkshire, in 1458. Inscribed, s. XVII?, with initials(?) "J [or S?] S [or F/J/B?]" (f. 1). Erased ownership inscription, the name is perhaps "Mary M[...]h[...]ley"(??), ending "hir (?) Boek / 1700" (f. 71v). Inscribed, s. XVIIIex?, "Philip Ludwell" (f. 114v). Acquired by the Huntington through the Library Collectors' Council, in February 1998, from Sam Fogg Rare Books Ltd, London, who acquired it from Bruce Ferrini, Akron, OH (ex info. Sam Fogg). - Peter Kidd, "Supplement to the Guide to Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the Huntington Library," Huntington Library Quarterly, vol. 72, no. 4 (December 2009) pp. 1–101. For the will of William Skargill (proved in 1484), see James Raine, ed., Testamenta Eboracensia: A Selection of Wills from the Registry at York, III, Surtees Society, XLV (1865, for 1864), 256-257.
