1. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01079
Description: - ff. i + 141 (with f. 108 bis) + i - Bound in dark red morocco by Zaehnsdorf. - Written for a Cistercian abbey in Bohemia, as indicated by the Alleluia verses of the Sundays after Pentecost and by the saints of the sanctorale; Margaret, placed at 13 July (on f. 84v, between the Seven Brothers and the Divisio Apostolorum) rather than at 20 July, also suggests an origin in the Germanic area of Europe. The date of the copying may lie between 1252 (when Adalbert of Prague was inscribed in the Cistercian calendar) and 1255 (when the feast of Stanislas was introduced in the Cistercian calendar; here it has been added in the lower margin of f. 65). The book may have belonged at a later time to a monastery of Benedictine nuns: on f. 55v is an added line, "Salvam fac ancillam tuam," with a tie mark to the office of Benedict. On the front pastedown, the bookplate of the Piedmontese Counts Cays di Giletta e Caselette, engraved by Teresa Ramis Ronzini of Turin (ca. 1810?). Belonged to Henry White; his sale, Sotheby's, 21 April 1902, lot 1510 to Quaritch; alien sequestrated property sale, Anderson, New York, 17 February 1919, n. 29 to G. D. Smith; precise source and date of acquisition by Henry E. Huntington 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). De Ricci, 89. Aspects of Medieval England, n. 38 open at f. 51.
