3. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01086
Description: - ff. i + 177 + i - Bound, s. XIX, in red velvet with silver filigree clasp. - Written in the middle of the fifteenth century, possibly in Bruges for export to England. Coat of arms placed in the lower margins of ff. 7v-8, very slightly overlapping the flowers of the border decoration: per pale, 1 argent a chevron or between 3 pheons the two in chief lying fesswise point to point and that in base erect sable; 2 or two lions combatant argent supporting a bezant. The first (although with a chevron gules) is given by J. Papworth, Ordinary of British Armorials (London 1874) 462 as Kyffin, co. Salop, agreeing with the note on f. 177 by the widow of "Gyffrey Kyffen" (d. 1479). Later notes on the same leaf show that the manuscript belonged to John Somers, 1st Baron Somers (1650/1-1716), whose library passed to his brother-in-law, Sir Joseph Jekyll (1663-1738); his sale, London, 26 February 1739, probably n. 5000 to James West (1704?-1772); the West sale, London, Langford, 27 February 1773, possibly n. 78. Thomas Windus acquired the book (ca. 1820?) from the booksellers John and Arthur Arch; the name Ansley Windus is neatly penned on f. i above an erasure; Thomas Windus sale, 27 February 1858, n. 197. A partially erased note reads "I bought this book at Leigh and Sotheby at auction for…" and seems to be signed "W. L__?___"; another partially erased note, in blue ink, appears to read "T__?___ Henry __?___." Sale of Edwin Henry Lawrence, Sotheby's, 9 May 1892, n. 299 to Quaritch. Belonged to Robert Hoe: Bierstadt (1895) 33 ; Cat. (1909) pp. 21-22 ; his sale, Anderson, New York, 1911, pt. I, n. 2128 to G. D. Smith; precise date and source of acquisition by Henry E.

4. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01087
Description: - ff. ii + 147 + ii - Bound by Douglas Cockerell in 1901 for J. B. Thacher, in bevelled wooden boards and stamped calf; 2 plaited fore edge straps to pins on the edge of the top cover; edges in red. Two sets of 2 holes on ff. i and 147, both originally pastedowns suggest long strap and pin closings on an earlier binding. - Written on the Continent (Bruges?) for English use; Ithamar and Paulinus in the calendar may indicate Rochester as the destination. The figure of a man kneeling before pope and emperor (f. 45v) may be intended to represent the owner of the book. The signature "Elizabeth Wyndesor" in an early sixteenth century hand on f. ii may be that of Elizabeth Blount, wife of Andrew Windsor; the same name occurs in a volume of Lydgate's poems, Oxford, Bod. Lib., Hatton 73, ff. 1v, 122 and 123 where an "Elyzabeth Wyndesore" is said to have died in 1531. Another sixteenth century owner was "Anne," to whom the book is dedicated on f. 146v: "Mystres Anne this boke and my hartte ys all yors/ Gode send you good chaunce and meny good New Yersse/ And al halloue that be with yn this boke exprest/ send me yor owne my desyre and harttes Reste/ En dieu essperaunce. A.W." The signature on f. ii of "Sir John Carrill," s. XVII, may be that of Lord John Caryll (1625-1711) whose heir was his nephew, John Caryll (1666?-1736); the latter's grandson held the sale in 1790 referred to on f. ii verso: "Benjamin Rotch, Dunkerque. Bought at a Sale of Lord Carryll's Library 6mo 15th 1790." Belonged to John Boyd Thacher of New York (1847-1909); his sale, Anderson, New York, 8 January 1914, pt. II, n. 253 to G. D. Smith. Source and date of acquisition by Henry E. Huntington unknown. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

5. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01125
Description: - ff. i + iii + 168 + iii + i - Bound, s. XIX, by Chambolle-Duru, in brown morocco with gilt tooling in a Grolieresque design; morocco doublures; gilt edges; brown morocco slipcase. - Written in the middle of the fifteenth century in Flanders or northern France for export to England. A coat of arms, s. XVI (?), has been added on f. 30v; per pale 1 azure a chevron or between three dogs' heads sable langued and collared gules; 2 quarterly, 1 and 4 azure three fish in a bend proper, 2 and 3 argent three escallops gules; above the arms, a stoat proper; below them, a fish or; the whole encircled by a chapelet of carnations.

6. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01131
Description: - ff. ii + i + 120 + i + ii - Bound, s. XVII, in Belgian red morocco with gold tooling; blue silk endpapers; gilt edges. - Written perhaps in the Ghent-Bruges area as suggested by the style of the miniatures, but liturgically intended for someone connected with a house of the Windesheim congregation. A reference in an indulgence on f. 93 to Pope Sixtus IV indicates a date certainly after 1471. Although most prayers present masculine forms, one, on f. 116v, refers to "me famulam tuam." The coat of arms on f. 1v bears the elaborate achievement of Margaretha van Bergen, consort of Floris van Egmond. The representation presumably dates from before 1500 when Floris van Egmond's father died, since the Egmond arms are here differenced with a label of six points argent; the representation is also considered to be before 1505 when Floris van Egmond was elected to the order of the Golden Fleece, the collar of that order is not present. Nor could these be the arms of Margaretha's and Floris' son, Maximilian, since she was not an heiress. The arms are, per pale, I, quarterly, 1 and 4, gules three chevrons or (Egmond; Rietstap, vol. 2, pl. 257); 2 and 3, gules one fesse counter-embattled argent (Arkel; Rietstap, vol. 1, pl. 66); over all, or a saltire checky argent and gules (Isselstein; Rietstap, vol. 3, pl. 258); II, per fesse, 1, per pale, sable a lion rampant or (Brabant; vol. 1, pl. 300); and paley gules and or (Berthout; Rietstap, vol. 1, pl. 196); 2, vert three mascles argent (Bautersem; Rietstap, vol. 1, pl. 146). This impaling, for Bergen-op-Zoom, in Rietstap, vol. 1, pl. 185. Belonged to Ambroise Firmin Didot (1790-1876); his sale, Paris, 12 June 1882 n. 18 to Baron de Beurnonville; later owned by William K. Bixby (1857-1931) of St. Louis; acquired by Henry E. Huntington through G. D. Smith in August 1918. - 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, 95.

16. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01200
Description: - ff. ii + ii + 162 + i - Bound, s. XVI, in pink velvet, very worn, over wooden boards; 2 gilt fore edge clasps; gilt edges; offset of binding reinforcement, apparently a document in French, s. XV#^2#, on inside front cover and on the recto of the now lifted pastedown. - Written in the middle of the fifteenth century in Flanders; liturgical use undetermined. The miniatures may not have been originally intended for this book, since the borders don't match; those for sext and none appear reversed, with the Presentation in the Temple preceding the Adoration of the Magi; all the full-page miniatures have been repainted. A possession note on the back flyleaf identifies a late sixteenth century owner as Johannes Hullandt; in another inscription, ca. 1600 (?), Carolus Hullandt "vicecomes Rolariensis villae" (Rousselaere?) gives the book to Catarina van Huerne. On the front flyleaf, f. i verso, are pious phrases and the inscription "Vertu pour guide, Jacqueline van." On f. ii verso, the inscriptions, "This Book belonged to Queen Mary of Scotland And shee used it at her death upon the Scaffold" (legible only under ultra-violet light), and "The above the Hand writing of King James the [?] 2," (s. XIX). A letter from Charles Browne Mostyn to Sir Gregory O. Page-Turner dated 1822 repeats this information, adding that the book eventually passed to the Scots College in Paris, where Mostyn obtained it during the Revolution. The letter, once loose in the manuscript, is now shelved as HM 46702. Sold at the Page-Turner sale, Battlesden House, 19 October 1824, probably n. 2524; Samuel Addington sale, Sotheby's, 24 May 1886, n. 285 to Nattali; belonged to Charles Butler (1821-1910); his sale, Sotheby's, 18 March 1912, pt.

Bixby (1857-1931) of St. Louis (St. Louis Republic, 18 March 1917, Feature section, p. 1). Acquired from him by Henry E. Huntington through G. D. Smith in August 1918. - C. W.
