9. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01035
Description: - ff. 98 - Bound, s. XVI (?), in limp parchment with title on the spine in a decorative gothic hand, but considerably damaged: "509. Arist. L[ogi?]ca Decor__?___ __?___oli__?___ __?___s de animali-[bus] Manuscript"; fore edge ties missing. On the back flyleaf, offset of a strip print [Woodward del. Rowlandson f.] Borders for Rooms, Plate 2, London, March 25 1799 at Ackerman's Gallery, 101 Strand. - Written in southern Italy for a member of the family of Charles I of Anjou, King of Sicily and Naples, 1266-85; the remaining coat of arms on f. 1 is of Anjou: azure, semy of fleur-de-lys or, differenced with a label of 5 points gules (Rietstap, vol. 1, pl. 52); Mr. Van de Put, according to De Ricci, has suggested that the 2 erased coats of arms are Jerusalem (Charles I was crowned King of Jerusalem in 1278) and Hungary ancient (Charles II married Mary of Hungary in 1270); both erased coats of arms bear traces of tinctures in gules and or. Belonged to Pier Leoni (d. 1492), physician to Lorenzo de' Medici. The inventory of Leoni's books is published in L. Dorez, "Recherches sur la bibliothèque de Pier Leoni, médecin de Laurent de Médicis," Revue des Bibliothèques 7 (1987) 81-106, where this manuscript may be identified with item 8, "Aristoteles de natura animalium." The single title, corresponding to HM 1035 as it stands today, suggests that the book had been bound in its more complete state (cf. the multiple titles on the spine, which must have referred to the text[s] on the missing 130 folios at the beginning of the book) and had then been dismembered before 1582, when the inventory of Leoni's library was compiled. See J. Ruysschaert, "Nouvelles recherches au sujet de la bibliothèque de Pier Leoni, médecin de Laurent le Magnifique," Bulletin de la classe des lettres et des sciences morales et politiques de l'Académie royale de Belgique, ser. 5, 46 (1960) 37-65, and his introduction to Bibliothecae Apostolicae Vaticanae . . . Codices 11414-11709 (Vatican 1959) p. vii, mentioning HM 1034 (evidently as typographical error for HM 1035): a number of Leoni books were in the library of the Jesuit College in Rome until ca. 1912, when approximately 27 of their manuscripts were sold to the bookdealer W. Voynich, possibly including HM 1035. On the front pastedown in modern pencil: J991, J992; on f. 1, in modern pencil: 992, a8665a. Acquired by Henry E. Huntington in 1918 from G. D. Smith. - C. W.

XVIII#^1# , in tan calf with the arms of the Abbey of Parc stamped in gold on front and back; in compartments on the spine, 2 reddish-brown morocco labels with the title Biblia Sacra and the volume number stamped in gold; red speckled edges; arms rubbed out in 1829 at the sale of the books. - Belonged to the Premonstratensian abbey of Parc near Louvain at least by the fourteenth century, when a note of ownership was inscribed in vol.

Wrongly said to have belonged to Petrarch and to have been among the books from his house near Milan, and to have been left by him to the Carthusians of Garegnano. In certain copies of Giacomo Filippo Tomasini, Petrarcha redivivus (2nd ed., Padua 1650) 281-86, a list of 114 codices, which, ostensibly having belonged to Petrarch, are said to have been bought in Padua by a "Marchese Linterno"; HM 1083 is n. 3 in that list. Of these presumed 114 codices, 26 later belonged to the Visconti di Modrone; ceded in 1834 by Duke Carlo Visconti di Modrone (d. 1836) to the Milanese engineer Giuseppe Bruschetti (1793-1871), who sold them to the bookdealer Gaetano Schiepatti; his sale catalogue of the Linterno codices issued in 1865. Offered to, but refused by the Italian government, because of their false attribution of ownership to Petrarch. Bought by another Milanese bookdealer, Luigi Arrigoni; HM 1083 is n. 2 in his sale catalogue (1883). At Arrigoni's death (1886), the remaining Linterno codices acquired by J. Rosenthal; placed by him at auction. Sotheby's, 12 April 1899; HM 1083 as lot 538 to Quaritch. Belonged to John Boyd Thacher (1847-1909) of New York; his sale, Anderson, New York, 8 January 1914, pt. II, n. 254 to G. D. Smith. - 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, 90. B. L.

21. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 03027
Description: - ff. 164 - Bound in original (?) oak boards, quarter backed in modern mottled calf; remains of 2 fore edge straps of pink leather closing to pins on the center back; flyleaves, washed, contained a prose text in French in 2 columns, written in a bâtarde script, s. XV. - Written in France, perhaps in Paris, during the next to the last decade of the thirteenth century, but in England by the third or certainly the last quarter of the fourteenth century, to judge by the script of the note added on f. 11v, correcting the king's name from "Edmundus" to "Edwardus." A modern note on f. i states that the manuscript came from Fountains Abbey, Yorkshire; rejected by Ker, MLGB, 89. Belonged to Sir Henry Ingilby, Bart., of Ripley Castle, Yorkshire and later to Lt. Col. Sir William Henry Ingilby, Bart. (1874-1950); his sale, Sotheby's, 21 October 1920, lot 172 to Sabin; at this point the current f. 164 began the volume.

22. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 19914
Description: - ff. 334 - Bound, s. XVII, in English brown calf over pasteboards; paper label on the front cover, also s. XVII, "Exposition on the Psalms, Lat. Liber artis praedicandi. Gregorii expositio in Job, et cetera"; edges speckled in red. - Although the 1959 Sotheby catalogue (see below) suggests that the manuscript may have belonged to the Augustinians of St. Osyth near Colchester because of the invocations of St. Osyth on ff. 184 and 200 (and possibly in the erasures on ff. 229, 334), there is no formal evidence to this effect. The manuscript was almost certainly in an institutional library in the fifteenth century, since below the rubric on f. 3, a later hand has added "2#^o# folio; causa distinctionis." Marginal notes by early owners: f. 2, s. XV: "Thoma Northall solvit domino Iohanni Wynton v s. viii d.," and on f. 334, s. XVI: "prec. xvi s." followed by an erasure. Belonged to the Welsh antiquary Robert Davies of Llannerch and Gwysaney (ca. 1658-1710). The earliest known catalogue of the Llannerch manuscripts, dated 1740, lists this manuscript as n. 14 (that number in ink on the front pastedown); the manuscript also appears in the 1778 catalogue as n. 69 (the cover of the manuscript has been rebacked, and thus probably lost its label with this designation). Later, when the collection had passed through inheritance to Philip Bryan Davies Cooke, a list of its contents was printed by the HMC, 6th Report , pt. I (1887-88); this manuscript on p. 419. When owned by Lt.-Col. Philip Ralph Davies-Cooke (b. 1896), the collection was placed on deposit in the National Library of Wales, 1947-59, where this book bore the number "Gwysaney 19" (in pencil on the inner front cover). For the history of the collection, see H. D. Emanuel, "The Gwysaney Manuscripts," National Library of Wales Journal# 7 (1952) 326-43. Davies-Cooke sale, Sotheby's, 15 June 1959, lot 203 to Maggs for the Huntington Library. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

23. 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.

Description: - ff. 10 - Bound in blue cloth over pasteboard probably by Bretherton. - Written in England or France in the opening years of the thirteenth century. Probably originates in a French collection, for the 2 quires are wrapped in a paper bifolium inscribed on the back leaf in a late eighteenth or early nineteenth century hand, "Chevaux D'artillerie De Campagne."
