3. San Marino, Huntington Library, EL 34 A 01
Description: - ff. i + 166 + i - Bound, s. XVI, in French dark brown calf with a blind stamped design; varnished; worn gilt edges. - Written in France in the second half of the fifteenth century for owners whose names may have been Claude and Catherine, as indicated by the frequent use of the initials C. and C. in the decoration, and by the possible owner representation in the miniature of St. Claude, f. 155; the name of Catherine is suggested, less firmly, by the rather uncommon prominence given to Catherine of Siena, f. 158. The manuscript was acquired by Henry E. Huntington as part of the Bridgewater Library which he purchased in 1917. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

4. San Marino, Huntington Library, EL 35 B 53
Description: - ff. ii + 158 + ii - Bound, ca. 1840, in dark green morocco with the Bridgewater crest blind stamped on both covers; rust marks on the final leaves indicate that the book was once chained at the top and bottom of the back cover; gilt edges. - Written in France in the second half of the thirteenth century; was shortly thereafter in England. Among the fifteenth century marginalia in English hands: f. 100, "Ego pravo [?] Ricardus lely convisi ille est manus pravus istius societatis et Iohannes cestren. et cetera tomas ia"; f. 110v, "Dominus Willelmus de brunbury persona eclesie de ald__?___"; f. 111, "__?___ de dusbere Omnibus est notum quod multum __?___"; f. 119v, "Et quere enim gelido zeperus fer __?___ sire et bone Ami __?___ Iohannes de Arderne honorables et reverentes de tous amitez sachez sire que ioe ai travalie en tour vous bosognies tentivement pour coe que ioe ne voliei que ne vous fustis descu quant" (ending abruptly; an apparently different hand on f. 133v also makes reference to "gelides zefferus"; the various repetitions of the verse, "Fuit homo missus…Iohannes" appear to be in a different hand); f. 146, "hugo de Lincoln." On f. 1, the pressmark "I:3./2." in the hand of John Egerton (1622-86), 2nd Earl of Bridgewater. The current Bridgewater pressmark and the bookplate from that Library on the front pastedown.

6. 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.

8. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00046
Description: - ff. 20 - Bound, s. XIX, in red velvet with ties; world chart has been removed from volume, flattened and stored in separate modern brown cloth case. - On the extension of the world map originally bound into the front of the volume are the arms of Artus de Cossé, Maréchal de France (1512-82), the first owner (?); his name is pencilled below the coat of arms, and arms are described on flyleaf of the volume by a later owner. 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. Y. 1856" ( Cat. II, 1902, 2d series, n. 95). - 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).

10. 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. Rouse et al., Guide to Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the Huntington Library (San Marino, 1989). De Ricci, 45. R. S.

18. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00937
Description: - ff. 361 - Bound, towards the middle of the s. XVIII, in dark blue French morocco for the Comte d'Argenson with his arms stamped on both covers; on the spine the same arms done with a very small tool, and a morocco lable: Bocace Des Nobles Malheureux; gilt edges and marbled endpapers. - Written in 1461-1462, according to the marginal notes and the colophon, f. 359v, by Haquinet le Pesquier. His monogram appears below his name on f. 359v and in the pen flourishes on ff. 247v and 248. The first owner of the manuscript was Jean de Croy, sieur de Chimay (d. 1473), whose coat of arms is in the initials at the beginning of each book; his motto, Souveingne vous, and device, an armoured merman, usually alternate in the chapter initials. On ff. 110v, and 196v, in the pen flourishes at the bottom of the text, the same coat of arms with the quarters reversed, encircled by the collar of the Order of the Golden Fleece. "Messire Iean de Croy, seigneur de Tour-sur-Marne" was nominated to the Order by Philip the Good; see H. Kervyn de Lettenhove, La Toison d'or (Brussels 1907) 91. Erased inscription f. 359v, "C'est le livre de Jehan boccace en__?___1 est a mo__?___oy comte __?___," which may be that of Charles de Croy, comte de Chimay until 1486, thereafter prince de Chimay, known to have signed his books in this fashion; see A. Bayot, Martin Le Franc: L'Estrif De Fortune et De Vertu (Paris 1928) 52-56, for a partial list of the manuscripts which belonged to the Croy de Chimay family; for the manuscripts in the 1614 sale of Charles de Croy (1560-1612), see E. van Even, "Notice sur la bibliothèque de Charles de Croy, duc d'Aerschot," Bulletin du Bibliophile Belge 9 (1852) 380-93 and 436-51; HM 937 does not appear in either list. Belonged to Marc-Pierre de Voyer de Paulmy Comte d'Argenson (1696-1764) whose arms are on the covers; see H. Martin, Catalogue des Manuscrits de la Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal, (Paris 1899) t. VIII "Histoire de la Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal" p. 116, where this manuscript appears on the inventory of the Comte d'Argenson. It was inherited by his son, Marc-René, Marquis de Voyer (1722-82), and sold by him to his cousin, Antoine-René de Voyer d'Argenson, marquis de Paulmy (1722-87) who listed it in his hand-written inventory, Paris, Arsenal, MS 6291, p. 99, before selling it to the book dealer Molini, evidently because he already had other finely illuminated copies of this text ("double moins beau que les autres," possibly in reference to Paris, Arsenal, MS 5193, with 150 miniatures). Belonged to Frederick William Brooke Thellusson, Baron of Rendlesham (1840-1911); his sale, Sotheby's, 27 February 1899, lot 1829 to Leighton. Owned by Charles Butler (1821-1910); his sale, Sotheby's, 5 April 1911, lot 183 to Edwards. Acquired by Herschel V. Jones of Minneapolis (1861-1928); his sale, Anderson, New York, 29 January 1919 pt. II, lot 1070C to G. D. Smith. Precise source and date of acquisition by Henry E. Huntington unknown. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

26. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01077
Description: - ff. i + 248 + ii - Bound, s. XVIII, in French green morocco with gold dentelle, in the style of Derome le Jeune. - Written in the second half of the fifteenth century in France for use in the diocese of Autun. HM 1077 may have been part of a larger volume, or one of a set, since it contains references to parts of a breviary not in the present book. Arms of the first owner in lower margins of ff. 1, 1v, 25, 41v, 150v, 167v and 243: quarterly, 1 and 4 azure, three keys (2 and 1) or in pale; 2 and 3 argent on a bend azure a tiny bird argent; apparently those of the Rolin family of Autun (Rietstap, vol. 5, pl. 181) and Landes, representing Nicolas Rolin (1376-1462) and his first wife, Marie des Landes (marriage ca. 1406); these arms used by their son, Jean Rolin (1408-83) whose personal device "Deum time" is inscribed in the initial on f. 150v; although Jean Rolin was made cardinal in 1449, the expected cardinal's hat does not appear surmounting the arms (as it does, for example, in his missal, Lyons, Bibl. Mun. MS 517 or on the Nativity of Autun, commissioned by him from the Maître de Moulins). On the front pastedown, bookplate with the monogram "H.C.M." (?) and the motto "Audentes fortuna juvat"; a note with the manuscript suggests the owner's name was "Mackinnon." Belonged to William Keeny Bixby (1857-1931) of St. Louis, Missouri; his sale, Anderson, New York, 29 March 1916, n. 280 with a plate of f. 150v to G. D. Smith. Sold privately by Herschel V. Jones (1861-1928) of Minneapolis to Henry E. Huntington in February 1918. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

27. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01078
Description: - ff. iii + 214 + ii - Bound, s. XV, in calf over wooden boards, tooled to form rectangular frames with a 12-pointed star in the center in a pattern associated with Toledo. 2 brass clasps closing from top to bottom, hooks only remaining; rebacked and much repaired. - Written in the late fourteenth century, perhaps in southern France. The coat of arms in the lower margin of f. 1 is of the bishopric of Tarazona: 1 and 4, vert a cross moline or voided gules; 2 and 3, or three bars gules, supported by 2 angels. The bishop who first owned the book may have been Pedro Perez Calvillo, Bishop of Tarazona, 1352-91, or his brother, Fernando, Bishop of Tarazona, 1392-1404, who, as Cardinal, attended Benedict XIII in Avignon. The library of the Calvillo, by testament, passed to the parochial church of St. Mary Magdalene in Tarazona, and later, by papal intervention, to the cathedral of that city; cathedral inventories mention two pontificals, neither of which are certainly identifiable with the present volume (one, which belonged to Pedro Calvillo, "cum clausuris de argenteo," the other "cum certis officiis"). See also D. Yates, "The Cathedral Library of Tarazona, Its Medieval Manuscripts and Benefactors," The Journal of Library History 17 (1982) 268-77. Sold, Sotheby's, 20 November 1923, lot 498 with a plate of f. 1 to Maggs for Henry E. Huntington. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.
