32. San Marino, Huntington Library, FI 5096
Description: - ff. 113 - Bound, s. XVIII, in English brown mottled calf over pasteboards, very brittle; a paper label on the lower part of the spine, now removed, with the number "110" (see below), once covered what may have been an earlier shelf mark. - In Carthusian possession for most of its history: f. 1, lower margin, an erased ownership note, s. XV, "Cartusie __?___b__?___s"; f. 33, across the text and inner margin, s. XVI(?), "Vallis Pisii Cartusie" (Valle di Pesio in the province of Cuneo, south of Turin; suppressed 1802); prayer added in the sixteenth century on f. 113v "in honore sancte marie de gratia prope papiam ordinis cartusie," with reference to the famous Charterhouse of Pavia founded by the Visconti. A letter from Pickering Dodge glued to f. i states that he bought the manuscript in Turin in 1853 "under the arches of Piazza Castello," and that it bears the number "110" in his Catalogue. Pickering Dodge gave the manuscript to the American publisher James T. Fields (1817-81) in November 1863; it came to the Huntington Library in 1979 as part of the Fields Collection (see Guide to Literary Manuscripts in the Huntington Library, 168-71). - C. W.

33. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00001
Description: - ff. 132 - Bound, ca. 1815, by Charles Lewis according to the 27 June 1883 Sotheby catalogue entry, but without binder's ticket or signature, in dark olive straight grain morocco, gold tooled, with the arms of Sir Isaac Lyon Goldsmid (1778-1859) on both covers; the arms later covered by leather patches, partially removed ca. 1928; gilt edges. Evidence suggests at least 2 previous bindings: one, s. XVI?, which had a center clasp on the front cover that left a rust stain and hole on the present ff. 1 and 2, showing that the presumed first quire had already been lost, but that the 4 leaves now missing after f. 2 were still in place, since there is virtually no rust mark on the present f. 3. A second binding, s. XVII?, may have been done for Christopher Towneley, since his pressmark appears twice on f. 1, as if the book had been returned to him from the binder with his first mark partially trimmed away, and he had thus been obliged to inscribe it a second time farther from the edge. Narrow stain along the fore edge on f. 1 also due to a previous binding. - Among the pentrials: s. XVI: f. 13, "Iohn"; f. 73, "Spigart [?]"; f. 90, "James blake bowrn by"; ff. 101, 107v, "Iohn"; s. XVII: f. 35v, "Samuel" and "S. humer__?___"; f. 73v, "Thomas Hargraues"; f. 90, "Thomas Hargraues of Burnleye"; f. 97v, "William __?___"; f. 121v, "P. Haw [?]." Belonged to Christopher Towneley (1604-74) whose pressmark occurs twice on f. 1, "13½:35" above "F:35." In the sale of John Towneley (1731-1813) of Towneley Hall, Lancashire, by Evans, pt. I, 8 June 1814, lot 894 to John Louis Goldsmid (second cousin to Sir Isaac Lyon Goldsmid); his sale, Evans, 11 December 1815, lot 287 to John North; his sale, Evans, pt. III, 25 May 1819, lot 457 to Peregrine Edward Towneley (son of the aforementioned John Towneley; d. 1846), whose name appears in pencil on f. ii verso. Sale of Col. John Towneley (nephew of Peregrine Edward Towneley; d. 1878), Sotheby's, 27 June 1883, lot 202 to Quaritch. Quaritch Cat. 355 (1884) n. 21885; Cat. 369 (1886) n. 35673; Cat. 124 (1892) n. 343; Cat. 138 (1893) n. 77; Cat. 176 (1898) n. 43; Cat. 193 (1899) n. 86. Sold in August 1900 to Sir Edward F. Coates (d. 1921); letter dated 16 August [1900] from A. W. Pollard to Mr. E. Almack tipped into the volume, regretting that the British Museum had not been able to acquire the manuscript. Coates sale, Sotheby's, 8 February 1922, lot 1 with plate of f. 111v to A. S. W. Rosenbach for Henry E. Huntington; letter dated 10 January 1922 from Rosenbach to Huntington tipped into the Library copy of the Sotheby catalogue. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

34. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00002
Description: - ff. 145 (foliated 6-150) - Bound, ca. 1832, in English light brown calf, gold tooled; marbled endpapers; edges tinted green; rebacked, with original green morocco labels laid down, the upper with the volume number "10" of the Devonshire plays, folio series, and the lower label with the Devonshire crest. A series of former stabbing holes shows an irregular pattern of overcast stitching, out as far as 12 mm. from the gutter, and done in a careless manner, running through all 13 quires in one operation. - Written in England, the earliest known complete manuscript of this text, in 1591 according to the explicit on f. 150v. Art. 1, with the date "4 June 1600" on f. I and the name "Georgium Bellin" on f. IV verso, was copied from Harley 2013 in the nineteenth century. Below the explicit on f. 150v, in a more formal script, possibly by a different person, but difficult to see clearly due to discoloration from a reagent, another note with the same date of 1591 and the name of the copyist (?), "By me Edward Gregorie scholler at Bunburye the yeare of our lord god 1591." But see also Lumiansky and Mills, xi, xvi n. 18. Also on f. 150v, ca. 1600, the name "Richarde Gregorie" twice; on f. 41, s. XVII, "John Egerton esq.," probably not one of the first three Earls of Bridgewater, all of whom bore that name, but rather another member of the Egerton family, who possessed properties in Cheshire. J. Payne Collier in the 1831 edition of his History of English Dramatic Poetry, 2:227 states that the manuscript had been "only very recently" discovered and that it had come into the possession of J. B. Nichols, esq., F.S.A. (presumably John Bowyer Nichols, 1779-1863, of The Gentleman's Magazine) from an unnamed gentleman of Cheshire; Nichols' name is omitted in the 1879 edition. It was first suggested by W. W. Greg, "Bibliographical and Textual Problems of the English Miracle Cycles," The Library 5 (1914) 170 that the modern transcription from Harley 2013 on ff. I-XII (paper watermarked 1829) was supplied by J. Payne Collier, presumably meaning that Collier obtained the transcription or had it done, rather than copying it himself, as the script does not resemble other examples of Collier's handwriting in the Huntington Library. By 1836, when Collier printed the Antichrist pageant (art. 23) in his Five Miracle Plays, the manuscript had passed into the collection of the Duke of Devonshire; it was temporarily mislaid and not available to H. Deimling for his 1892 edition. Listed in the typescript "Alphabetical Handlist of the Titles of the Kemble-Devonshire Collection of English Plays," compiled 1906-07, vol. 1, p. 92. - C. W.

35. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00003
Description: - ff. 35 - Unbound, leaves mounted on strips of paper watermarked 1825; top and fore edges of all leaves except ff. 21-22 tinted green; formerly bound in English light brown calf, ca. 1830, in volume 9, folio series, of the Devonshire plays. - Discovered sometime between 1831-38 from among some old papers, probably once belonging to the Corporation of Ipswich (Collier, ed., p. vi) and transferred to the collection of the Duke of Devonshire, through the agency of Collier himself. Two leaves, ff. 21-22, were missing from the manuscript at that time and were only reunited with the rest in 1847; they had been found stitched in the copy of Collier's 1838 edition owned by a Mr. William Stevenson Fitch of Ipswich; through a friend of Mr. Fitch, one Mr. Pulman, they were acquired by Collier for the Duke of Devonshire; listed in the typescript Alphabetical Handlist of the Titles of the Kemble-Devonshire Collection of English Plays, compiled 1906-07, vol. 1, p. 292. The Duke of Devonshire collection of plays acquired by Henry E. Huntington in January 1914, through Sotheby's and G. D. Smith. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

43. 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.

60. 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.
