Description: - ff. i + 234 + i - Bound, s. XVI or XVII, recovered in black leather with small concentric stipple tooled pattern over original boards, rebacked; evidence of 2 fore edge clasps on boards; a pearshaped recess (65 × 35 mm., at its widest point) on the inside of the front cover probably intended to hold a religious object (an ampulla of holy water?); fore edge tabs; paper label on the spine. - Written in the northeastern Netherlands, to judge from the Ripuarian linguistic elements in the text.

Belonged to Henry William Poor (1844-1915), with his red morocco ex libris on f. i; his sale, Anderson, New York, 12 January 1909, pt. III, n. 766. Apparently acquired by Henry E.

Description: - Vol. I: ff. 316; Vol. II: ff. 394 - Bound, s. XVIII#^1# , in tan calf with the arms of the Abbey of Parc stamped in gold on front and back; in compartments on the spine, 2 reddish-brown morocco labels with the title Biblia Sacra and the volume number stamped in gold; red speckled edges; arms rubbed out in 1829 at the sale of the books. - Belonged to the Premonstratensian abbey of Parc near Louvain at least by the fourteenth century, when a note of ownership was inscribed in vol. I, f. 316, "Explicit liber sancte marie de parcho." Not identified in the inventory of Parc books complied by the abbot Jean Maes in 1635-36 for publication in A. Sanderus, Bibliotheca Belgica Manuscripta (Lille 1641-43/44; rep. London 1967 and Archives et Bibliothèques de Belgique, no special 7, Brussels 1972) 2:162-75. During the first half of the eighteenth century the Parc books were rebound in a characteristic tan calf, stamped with the abbey's arms; of the 2 stamps used, the larger, more ornate stamp was placed on HM 1075. At the same time, another ownership note was done, vol. I, f. 1, lower margin, "Liber Bibliothecae Parcensis [effaced in 1829]; Biblia Sacra ab initio usque ad Job inclusive pars prima; 111 G [?]." Sale of the Parc library, Louvain, 28 October 1829. See E. Van Balberghe, "Les Critères de Provenance des Manuscrits de Parc," Archives et Bibliothèques de Belgique, n#^o# special, Contribution à l'Histoire des Bibliothèques et de la Lecture aux Pays-Bas avant 1600 (Brussels 1974). On the front pastedown, a repair note dated August 1835 and signature of John Lee (born Fiott; 1783-1866) of Hartwell House near Aylesbury, Bucks. The endpapers in both volumes were apparently inserted at the time of the repair, since another set seems to be visible beneath them, and since the eighteenth century Parc pressmark, normally on the front pastedown, is no longer visible, not even under Lee's armorial ex libris: quarterly, 1 and 4, azure 2 bars or, a bend counter-compony gules and or (Lee; Rietstap , vol. 4, pl. 38 ), 2 and 3, azure a chevron charged with an anchor sable between 3 lozenges or (Fiott); Lee pressmark "Doctors Commons N. 11/93."

XIII) and a book in the Lee sale, Sotheby's, 8 November 1888, lot 59, "Aquaevilla de dominicis et festis" ( Belgium, dated 1340). - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

XV, in oak boards with recesses at the fore-edge of the front board for two clasp fittings; covered in brown suede from the spine to about the middle of the boards, which in turn is covered with later alum-tawed(?) pale leather, stained pink, to judge by the turn-ins; the outer cover worn away at the five raised bands on the spine; the second compartment with a paper label inscribed "M. S." (s. XVIII?); the edges of the leaves gilt over a red ground. - Written in the southern Netherlands for a English patron, perhaps living in the east midlands or East Anglia and perhaps with a connection to the Dominican house at Dunstable, to judge by the calendar.

XVI or XVII, "and Jesus / blesse mee / my granfathers [sic] / booke / Pe [or De?]" (f. i); apparently in recusant ownership in s.

11. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 57340
Description: - ff. i + 149 + i - Bound, s. XX, in polished brown leather, the covers with a blind triple fillet and a blind-stamped central panel, the plain spine (no title) with four raised bands; the pastedowns and flyleaves preserved from a previous binding, s. XVIII(?), with part of a fleur-de-lis watermark. - Written apparently in Utrecht, to judge by the script, decoration, Office of the Dead and some of the original red feasts in the calendar; apparently for an English owner, to judge by the Sarum Use of the Office of the Virgin and the English saints in the calendar. John Newsom (?) of the parish of Whitkirk in Yorkshire (? see below), by 1417 according to an entry in the calendar at 17 March about the birth of a daughter. William Skargyl (d. ca. 1484), by 1434 according to an entry in the calendar at 13 May about the birth of a son; the Skargills/Scargills are a well-documented Yorkshire family: the William in this inscription is presumably the son of the William Skargill of Thorpe Stapleton, who founded a chantry chapel in 1449 in Whitkirk parish church, for his own soul and that of his wife Constance and son William; this son William was presumably the William Skargill of Lede/Lead (about 10 miles north-east of Whitkirk), whose will was proved on 5 August 1484, while the son mentioned in the inscription is doubtless the William Skargill who was born in 1434 in Gawthorp (about 10 miles south-west of Whitkirk), and who married an Elizabeth Gascoigne of Burnby, Yorkshire, in 1458. Inscribed, s. XVII?, with initials(?) "J [or S?] S [or F/J/B?]" (f. 1). Erased ownership inscription, the name is perhaps "Mary M[...]h[...]ley"(??), ending "hir (?) Boek / 1700" (f. 71v). Inscribed, s. XVIIIex?, "Philip Ludwell" (f. 114v). Acquired by the Huntington through the Library Collectors' Council, in February 1998, from Sam Fogg Rare Books Ltd, London, who acquired it from Bruce Ferrini, Akron, OH (ex info. Sam Fogg). - Peter Kidd, "Supplement to the Guide to Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the Huntington Library," Huntington Library Quarterly, vol. 72, no. 4 (December 2009) pp. 1–101. For the will of William Skargill (proved in 1484), see James Raine, ed., Testamenta Eboracensia: A Selection of Wills from the Registry at York, III, Surtees Society, XLV (1865, for 1864), 256-257.
