3. San Marino, Huntington Library, EL 34 B 07
Description: - ff. 86 (1-6 and 86 = foliated flyleaves) - Bound, ca. 1840, in dark blue morocco with the Bridgewater crest stamped in gold on both covers; gilt edges. - Written in England at the beginning of the sixteenth century presumably for Dame Margery Byrkenhed of the Benedictine nunnery of St. Mary at Chester; her ownership note on f. 85v appears to be in the same hand as the text. The saints whose altars are named for the washing ceremony of Maundy Thursday are not those of Salisbury and thus could be those of Chester; assigned to Chester by Ker, MLGB, 50. Early Bridgewater pressmarks on f. 1, "X/3/" in the hand of John Egerton (1622-86), 2nd Earl of Bridgewater, now cancelled, and "S,8./4." in the hand of the third Earl (1646-1701). The current Bridgewater pressmark and that Library's bookplate on the front pastedown. Acquired by Henry E. Huntington with the Bridgewater Library in 1917. - 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, 134. Aspects of Medieval England, n. 40 open at f. 42.

4. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00002
Description: - ff. 145 (foliated 6-150) - Bound, ca. 1832, in English light brown calf, gold tooled; marbled endpapers; edges tinted green; rebacked, with original green morocco labels laid down, the upper with the volume number "10" of the Devonshire plays, folio series, and the lower label with the Devonshire crest. A series of former stabbing holes shows an irregular pattern of overcast stitching, out as far as 12 mm. from the gutter, and done in a careless manner, running through all 13 quires in one operation. - Written in England, the earliest known complete manuscript of this text, in 1591 according to the explicit on f. 150v. Art. 1, with the date "4 June 1600" on f. I and the name "Georgium Bellin" on f. IV verso, was copied from Harley 2013 in the nineteenth century. Below the explicit on f. 150v, in a more formal script, possibly by a different person, but difficult to see clearly due to discoloration from a reagent, another note with the same date of 1591 and the name of the copyist (?), "By me Edward Gregorie scholler at Bunburye the yeare of our lord god 1591." But see also Lumiansky and Mills, xi, xvi n. 18. Also on f. 150v, ca. 1600, the name "Richarde Gregorie" twice; on f. 41, s. XVII, "John Egerton esq.," probably not one of the first three Earls of Bridgewater, all of whom bore that name, but rather another member of the Egerton family, who possessed properties in Cheshire. J. Payne Collier in the 1831 edition of his History of English Dramatic Poetry, 2:227 states that the manuscript had been "only very recently" discovered and that it had come into the possession of J. B. Nichols, esq., F.S.A. (presumably John Bowyer Nichols, 1779-1863, of The Gentleman's Magazine) from an unnamed gentleman of Cheshire; Nichols' name is omitted in the 1879 edition. It was first suggested by W. W. Greg, "Bibliographical and Textual Problems of the English Miracle Cycles," The Library 5 (1914) 170 that the modern transcription from Harley 2013 on ff. I-XII (paper watermarked 1829) was supplied by J. Payne Collier, presumably meaning that Collier obtained the transcription or had it done, rather than copying it himself, as the script does not resemble other examples of Collier's handwriting in the Huntington Library. By 1836, when Collier printed the Antichrist pageant (art. 23) in his Five Miracle Plays, the manuscript had passed into the collection of the Duke of Devonshire; it was temporarily mislaid and not available to H. Deimling for his 1892 edition. Listed in the typescript "Alphabetical Handlist of the Titles of the Kemble-Devonshire Collection of English Plays," compiled 1906-07, vol. 1, p. 92. - 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, 37-38.

Description: - ff. 35 - Unbound, leaves mounted on strips of paper watermarked 1825; top and fore edges of all leaves except ff. 21-22 tinted green; formerly bound in English light brown calf, ca. 1830, in volume 9, folio series, of the Devonshire plays. - Discovered sometime between 1831-38 from among some old papers, probably once belonging to the Corporation of Ipswich (Collier, ed., p. vi) and transferred to the collection of the Duke of Devonshire, through the agency of Collier himself. Two leaves, ff. 21-22, were missing from the manuscript at that time and were only reunited with the rest in 1847; they had been found stitched in the copy of Collier's 1838 edition owned by a Mr. William Stevenson Fitch of Ipswich; through a friend of Mr. Fitch, one Mr. Pulman, they were acquired by Collier for the Duke of Devonshire; listed in the typescript Alphabetical Handlist of the Titles of the Kemble-Devonshire Collection of English Plays, compiled 1906-07, vol. 1, p. 292. The Duke of Devonshire collection of plays acquired by Henry E. Huntington in January 1914, through Sotheby's and G. D. Smith. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

Given by a Dr. Moore (of Paris) ca. 1850 to Joseph Brooks Yates (1780-1855). Bequeathed by him to Henry Yates Thompson (1838-1928), whose bookplate is on front flyleaf marked "95, Inherited J. B.

22. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00048
Description: - ff. 107 - Bound in worn burgundy-colored velvet over wooden boards; gauffered gilt edges; kept in a red morocco box. - Written in France, possibly Tours, although the calendar and litany appear quite general, in the early sixteenth century. It has been suggested that the manuscript belonged to the Duchess of Namur on the basis of what was interpreted as a coat of arms in a roundel on f. 16, a ruby proper, in a lozenge or, surrounded by 4 pearls proper. However, this may simply be an ornamental Renaissance jewel, as is frequently found in Italian manuscripts of the time. Belonged to Herschel V. Jones of Minneapolis (1861-1928), and was obtained from him in February 1918 by Henry E. Huntington. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

25. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00121
Description: - ff. iii + 26 + iii - Bound by F. Bedford in brown russia, gold tooled; gilt edges. - The text is intended as a New Year's gift to Queen Mary (f. 2v, "As a token that the new yeare doth begyn/ I presente to your grace…"); HM 121 could possibly be the presentation copy; no other copy, printed or manuscript, is known to exist. De Ricci, referring to the initials R. T. on the frontispiece, has suggested that HM 121 might be a transcript of an edition printed by Richard Tottell; however, there seems to be no evidence to support this. The manuscript is dated 1557, possibly Old Style; in that case, it may not be the book listed among the "New Year's Gifts presented to Queen Mary in 1556" [which is certainly Old Style, as the subtitle refers to 3 and 4 Philip and Mary] in Illustrations of the Manners and Expences of Antient Times in England . . . (printed by and for John Nichols, London 1797) p. 13: "By Myles Huggard, a book written. With the Quene her Maiestie"; her return gift, op. cit., p. 24: "To Myles Huggard, oone guilte salte, Raynes per oz., 5 oz. di." In the dedication, Hogarde admits to a yearly tradition, "To presente youre grace, then thus baselie/ With suche a rude booke every yeare. . ." On f. 26, an inscription, s. XVI: "Thi mother naturall and loueynge to her little power [?] Elyzabethe Rychers wissethe to the my dowghter Ceselia all helthe and perfitt felisite." Belonged to Major Thomas Pearson (1740?-81); his sale, 14 April 1788, lot 2162 to Lord Charlemont. The Charlemont sale was to have taken place 10 July 1865 (this manuscript as lot 1073), but a large portion of the collection burned in the fire at Sotheby's on 28 June; some of the surviving books were sold on 11 August 1865, including this one, as lot 221 to Toovey. Belonged to the Rev. Thomas Corser (1793-1876); his sale, Sotheby's, 6 August 1869, pt. III, lot 542 to Ellis. Sold in 1869 by Hazlitt to Henry Huth (1815-78); see The Huth Library 2:745; Alfred H. Huth (1850-1910) sale, Sotheby's, 2 June 1913, pt. III, lot 3894 to Quaritch. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.
