3. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00030
Description: - ff. 8;;Engraving - Bound, s. XVIIex , in Spanish calf, gold tooled with gilt plaquettes (possibly coats of arms) barely visible in center of front and back; remains of ties at top, bottom and fore edge. - From library of the Abate Luigi Celotti (ca. 1768-ca. 1846); his sale, Sotheby's, 14 March 1825, n. 208 to Thomas Thorpe; pencilled number "85" on front pastedown; "200" and "3/3/0" pencilled on back pastedown probably refer to catalogue number and sale price of Thomas Thorpe; Sir Thomas Phillipps' Middle Hill stamp on front pastedown and "Phillipps MS 4352" written on front of chart 1. The portolan is listed under the Thorpe sale in the Middle Hill catalogue p. 69 with the notation "Ex Bibl. Celotti." - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

4. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00031
Description: - ff. 2 - Bound, ca. 1830, with HM 2515 in pink marbled paper over cardboard, brown calf spine. - Sale of the library of Abate Luigi Celotti (ca. 1768-ca. 1846), Sotheby's, 14 March 1825, lot 207. A sale catalogue slip affixed to front pastedown describes a "map of the World on three leaves." Since this volume also contains the two charts made by Salvator Oliva (HM 02515) which form the first and second leaves and since neither is a "World map," the sale catalogue entry either was carelessly made or the slip actually refers to a different portolan chart and was erroneously placed in this volume. This volume may instead have been lot 210 or lot 283 in the Celotti sale: both numbers are pencilled on the pastedown. Number 391 on back pastedown refers to Cochrane's sale of the library of Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guilford (1766-1827), to Sir Thomas Phillipps, 8 December 1830 as dated by A. N. L. Munby, The Formation of the Phillipps Library up to the Year 1840, Phillipps Studies (Cambridge 1951-60) 3:56. Front pastedown bears his number "Phillipps MS 6360." - 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 , 41.

Sir Thomas Phillipps' Middle Hill stamp inside back cover and his number 2550 altered from 2634. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

16. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01158
Description: - ff. v + 80 + v - Bound, s. XVII, in Venetian style deep red morocco, elaborately tooled front and back in an all-over pattern of gold swirls and white enamel leaves with center rosettes in the same manner; later English marbled endpapers; gilt edges. For a reproduction of this binding, see One hundred and seventy-six historic and artistic Bookbindings dating from the Fifteenth Century to the Present Time…after the originals selected from the Library of Robert Hoe (New York 1895), vol. I, pl. 42. - Written ca. 1600 (?) by Iacobus Tarranus of Rome, who also copied an Officio della Beata Vergine Maria; see American Art Association, 20 December 1920, lot 567, the sale of a "Notable American Collection" (Oliver R. Barrett) to Sen. David A. Reed, and De Ricci, 495, n. 11. Most of Senator's Reed's collection is now at Princeton University; this manuscript, however, remains untraced. Although HM 1158 may once have been part of a larger manuscript which included an office of the Virgin, it was not part of Sen. Reed's manuscript, given the latter's larger size (7 9/16 × 5⅜ inches, i.e. approx. 190 × 140 mm.). Acquired by Robert Hoe at least by 1895 (see above); Cat. (1909) pp. 145-46; the slip from this catalogue pasted on f. ii; his sale, Anderson, New York, 1912, pt. III, n. 2086 to G. D. Smith. Precise source and date of acquisition by Henry E.

17. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 02098
Description: - f. 1 - Unbound: possibly originally mounted on boards since there is a sharp vertical crease in the center of this chart, but there are no cut-outs for hinges. A lesser horizontal fold was possibly made to fit a later binding. Chart is now flattened and in modern portfolio. - No owners' markings; according to Anderson sale catalogue, chart was found in chest of documents related to Plymouth district of Devonshire, all dated before 1601. Belonged to E. Williams. - 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 , 111. T. R.

18. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 02515
Description: - ff. 3 - Bound, ca. 1830, with HM 31, in pink marbled paper over cardboard, brown calf spine. - Sale of the library of Abate Luigi Celotti (ca. 1768-ca. 1846), Sotheby's, 14 March 1825, lot 207. A sale catalogue slip affixed to front pastedown describes a "…map of the World on three leaves." Since this volume also contains the Mediterranean chart made by Estienne Bremond (HM 31) which forms the third leaf and since neither is a "World map," the sale catalogue entry either was carelessly made or the slip actually refers to a different portolan chart and was erroneously placed in this volume. This volume may instead have been lot 210 or lot 283 in the Celotti sale: both numbers are pencilled on the pastedown. Number 391 on back pastedown refers to Cochrane's sale of the library of Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guilford (1766-1827), to Sir Thomas Phillipps, 8 December 1830 as dated by A. N. L. Munby, The Formation of the Phillipps Library up to the Year 1840, Phillipps Studies (Cambridge 1951-60) 3:56. Front pastedown bears his number "Phillipps MS 6360." - 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, 41.

19. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 30957
Description: - ff. vii + 199 - Bound, s. XVII, in limp parchment with remains of 2 fore edge ties; title on the spine in a round gothic script "derrotero de la Carrera de las India[s]." - Notes on front cover "SN 118," and on front pastedown, "$SEE" (?). A letter, dated 22 July 1968, on file in the Huntington Library from Dra. Lourdes Díaz-Trechuelo of the Escuela de Estudios Hispano-Americans de Sevilla suggests that this manuscript may have been in the private library of the Marqués de Ayamonte, to whom the book is dedicated. After his death it probably passed into the library of his relative, the Conde-Duque de Olivares, a library consulted by A. León Pinelo for his bibliography published in 1629. - 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). A. León Pinelo, Epitome de la biblioteca oriental i occidental, nautica i geografica (Madrid 1629) 149. A.

20. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 37542
Description: - ff. 10 - Formerly bound with HM 00177, vol. 2; separated in 1975. - On f. 1, upper left corner, "39" in ink, possibly indicating its number in a series of Spanish documents; in center of upper margin, "33," in pencil. On the first leaf of most books of HM 00177, with whose Vol. 2 HM 37542 was formerly bound, a small section has been clipped out, possibly to remove some identifying marks, and replaced with matching paper on which the original text was recopied by tracing. An early Huntington Library report mentions the presence of the bookplate of Don José Colón of Cáceres on the first page of Vol. 2 (Book IV); it is no longer in the book. The back pastedown bears a pencilled bookseller's notation "AY 81." - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

21. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 48048
Description: - ff. 178 (recte 146) - Bound, s. XVIII, in wooden boards with large bosses and studs on all sides and along spine; rebacked; cracks in the wood repaired with small brass plates on the inside. Thumb holes cut along the lower edge of each leaf; book marks of yellow silk and red braid hang from a wire attached to the top of the spine. Leaves from another antiphonal used as flyleaves (foliated as ff. 1 and 178, now scraped and written over) and as pastedowns (the front pastedown, once present as shown by offset on front cover, now missing; the back pastedown now lifted) from a book very similar to the present one. Two stoles and a strip of silk formerly loose in the volume; on a large, carved, pseudo-gothic lectern. - Written for use in a Franciscan house, after the canonization of Didacus in 1588. In 1719 P. Regulus added the table of contents and identified himself as being from "Vurno," probably the town of Vorno in the province of Lucca, which would have fallen under the jurisdiction of the Franciscan province of Tuscany. Date and source of acquisition by the Huntington Library unknown. - 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).
