93. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00135
Description: - ff. 86 - Bound, s. XIX, in English brown calf, blind tooled; marbled endpapers; by same binder as for HM 139 (cf. tool on turn-ins). - Obvious wear and soil on ff. 1 and 82v suggest that the first text was once a separate volume. Pen trials throughout the volume include these names: s. XVI, f. 12, "Thomas Parrsie gent."; f. 25, "Noverint universi per presentes nos Thomam Catffieldes"; s. XVII, f. 1, "Henricus Smitheus" (rubbed); f. 6, "To the Right honourable the Ea[rl] of Essex at Chartley __cropped___"; f. 17, "William Wacker of Ifield in the"; f. 31, "Thomas Mid" and in the same hand, f. 32, "Johannes"; f. 36, "Noverint universi per present[es] Henricus Colse de Michem __cropped___ Commitat. Surrey gent. et __cropped___ Hother of Horsham in the __cropped___ Sussex." Seymour has suggested that this manuscript may be identified with one owned by Richard Heber, his sale, Evans, 10 February 1836, lot 1163 which "wants beginning and end and has been cruelly mutilated in the middle for the sake of the illumination"; however, there is no reason to suppose that HM 135 is mutilated at the beginning.

97. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00140
Description: - ff. ii + 170 + ii - Bound, ca. 1835, in English russia; marbled endpapers; rebacked with early spine laid down. - If the book were indeed in 2 parts, they were probably united by 1521-27 when owned by William Marshall, whose name occurs in both parts: f. 98, a memorandum dated 16 December 1527 written by William Marshall, "armerar" of London about an obligation involving himself, "my lorde of exetore" (John Voysey or Veysey, Bishop of Exeter, 1519-51, 1553-54), "mastar doktar bernele" (Dr. John Burnell, almoner and treasurer to Princess Mary), "Rychard Jonson setezen & habardashar of london and yeman of the chambar with my lord feres" (Walter Devereux, Lord Ferrers, ca. 1488/9-1558), and "Rychard base notare" in regards to a debt incurred by "William Kartar armerar" (in charge of the artillery at Ludlow in 1534; died in 1551) by the purchase of a horse from Richard Welles at Stratford-at-Bow, mentioning also "bivdeley" (Bewdley, Worcs.) and "ane othar plase werre my lade prynses consell lyethe" (referring to the Council of the Marches of Wales under Princess Mary's titular head). On f. 166 is another note in William Marshall's hand (without names); on f. 166v, a note in a different hand (the same as on f. 160, regarding the rent of a house) on the "prosettes of Scavagyng gaderid by Robard Actun" (Groom of the Chamber, 1524) and William Marshall, including the names of "John More, the Cutlar nexte the flowiredeluse, Myghhell the Frutrare, John pachet, Rychard lyne, Thomas Alen, Nicolas krystin, Rychard Alen, John Bartun." On f. 167, is another note headed "william marshall" and in his hand, referring to events of 14-17 December 1521 and mentioning "John the Skot" (possibly the Queen's tailor), "mastar breges" (John Brydges, Master of the Wardrobe in 1521 and 1530), "Rogear otley" (of the Pitchford family?), and "nycolas slendon." William Marshall's name and handwriting also occur 3 times on f. 170v, including in the phrase "Memorandum that I william marshall hathe Received [?] of thomas." Another name occuring in both parts of the volume is that of William Turner, suggested by Manly and Rickert to be the William Turner who was Master of the Robes for Henry VIII, and suggested in Garmonsway and Raymo, "Life of St. Ursula," p. 353 to be the dean of Wells, physician and botanist of that name, who died in 1568: on f. 101, "ego wyllelmus Tornar scripsitt hic" and on f. 170v, "This is Master Turnars Boke testes Johan dolman, Jamys Crock and Master harrewood gentillman. Thomas miseracione divina"; a John Dolman was Yeoman of the Queen's Chamber in 1509-12; "Master harrewood" may be William Harwood, admitted to the Middle Temple in 1519. Other names are: on f. 113v, among various jottings in Latin, "propria manew [?] me Thomam smythe de wyllton" and "thomas mason"; on f. 123v, "Maister Johan hammwltone duyllyng in Seint Jeyllis Parishe withought cripulgat"; on f. 169v, "Johannes russe"; on f. 170, "Billyngten"; on f. 170v, among many jottings, "har ri gar de nar" (3 times; for "Harry Gardener"?), "Henry haworth," and an anathema against stealing books, "Thys Boke hys whon & crystes cors hys a nodor/ he that steles they boke thake they thodor." On f. 114, apparently in one seventeenth century hand, but difficult to read because of the elaborate but careless script: "__?___ bless [?] Hadlam"; "ys my Loue And Desire"; "Wyll James"; "Henry Diszell"; "Citiz. and stationer of London"; "the 18 yer of the yere [?] of our Souereygne Lady"; "Ed. London." For details, particularly speculation on the identity of the individuals named, see Manly and Rickert, 1:436-38. Belonged to Richard Gough (1735-1809); his sale, Sotheby's, 5 April 1810, lot 4197 to Richard Heber (1773-1833); Heber sale, by Evans, pt. XI, 10 February 1836, lot 1133 to Sir Thomas Phillipps; Phillipps n. 8299. Sold privately through A. S. W. Rosenbach to Henry E. Huntington in 1923. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.

98. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00142
Description: - ff. 62 - Bound, s. XIX, in half blue straight grain morocco over pasteboards, gold tooled. - Written in England in the middle of the fifteenth century; ff. 49-60 copied apparently by T. Werken in 1467. The change from masculine forms in a prayer on f. 17v to feminine forms in the prayers on ff. 50, 54v may reflect a change in ownership at the time when the second scribe, T. Werken, began his work. On f. 14v, s. XV/XVI, "Pray for ser Thomas Ware prieste." De Ricci suggests that the manuscript was sold to an American before 1889 by F. T. S. (?; Frank T. Sabin?), probably in reference to a pencil note with these initials and a price code in the upper right corner of f. i verso, and to a rather effusive note on this book's rarity, ". . .the only volume of its kind ever brought to America." Belonged to Clarence S. Bement of Philadelphia; not identified in his sales (28 February, 29 March 1923); apparently acquired by Henry E. Huntington before 1916. - 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, 57-58.

99. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00143
Description: - ff. 108 - Bound, s. XVIII, in tan calf by Thomas Elliott, blind tooled in a panel pattern with a carnation at each corner of the panel. See H. Nixon, "Harleian Bindings," Studies in the Book Trade in Honour of Graham Pollard. Oxford Bibliographical Society Publications n.s. 18 (1975), 153-94, and especially plate 15, no. 8; for variant forms of the carnation tool, see J. B. Oldham, Shrewsbury School Library Bindings (Oxford 1943) 115 n. 2. The same binding is on HM 00150 and Lawrence, University of Kansas, Spencer Library, MS B61, a mid-fourteenth century register of writs [NB: date of Kansas manuscript corrected in 2012 from date cited in the 1987 printed HEH catalogue]. Stains from the turn-ins of a previous binding are visible on ff. i and 108; rust holes from 2 former clasps extend through the front flyleaves and several text leaves. - Written at the end of the fourteenth century in England, and localizable by its dialect to southwestern Worcestershire (Malvern Wells or Upton area). A fifteenth-century owner recopied the first 4 lines of the poem on f. 108; another wrote on f. 107v: "Ihesu ihesu ihesu for thyn holy name to be me ihesus." "Dan John redbery," s. XV/XVI, signed his name on f. 108; another early owner, s. XVI or XVII, John Russell signs his name with a monogram flourish on f. i verso and f. 107v. Belonged to the Sotheby family by the late seventeenth century; signature of James Sotheby (d. 1720) on f. ii and on f. 1; on f. ii the numbers "Y666" (or D666?) and "80." Armorial bookplate of C. W. H. Sotheby on the front pastedown; Col. H. G. Sotheby sale, Sotheby's, 24 July 1924, lot 129 with plate of f. 1 to A. S. W. Rosenbach. Acquired by Henry E. Huntington in 1924. - C. W.

100. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00144
Description: - ff. 152 - Bound, s. XVI, ledger-style, sewn with twisted strips of parchment through each quire and through the limp parchment cover, and knotted on to heavy stamped leather on the outside of the spine; long extensions of front and back covers serve as fore edge flaps. - Several sixteenth century owners wrote their names in the book: f. ii, among many pentrials, "John thyll [second word erased]. John tylly owth for ii bowsylles of wy[cropped] the pres xxiiii d."; "Iste confessor domyni. Iste lyber pertenethe nicolaus serll"; on the inside of the front and back covers, "John Skynner" and "John Skynner of farnham." Manly and Rickert identify a wealthy family named Skinner in the records of Surrey, one of whom held a tenement in Farnham; a John Tylly is known to have had connections in Peckham where one John Skinner is also known; the musters for Farnham in 1569 list a Nicholas Searle. Manly and Rickert suggest that the note on f. 81 may be in the hand of William Thynne (d. 1546), who prepared editions of Chaucer's works in 1532 and 1542. The notes on ff. 1 and 9v appear to be written by John Stow (1525?-1605) who brought out a revised version of Thynne's edition of Chaucer in 1561; see E. P. Hammond, English Verse between Chaucer and Surrey (Duke University Press 1927) 193-94. On f. ii, "Th. Sayer me tenet 7 decembris 1617" and on f. iv verso "Th. Sayer." Belonged to a member of the Savile family; not in A. G. Watson, The Manuscripts of Henry Savile of Banke (London 1969) as Henry Savile died in 1617. Savile sale, Sotheby's, 6 February 1861, lot 34 to Ellis. Sold by Ellis in that year to Henry Huth (1815-78); Huth Catalogue (1880) 4:1158-59; sale of Alfred H. Huth (1850-1910), Sotheby's, pt. VI, 11 July 1917, lot 5871 to Quaritch. Acquired by Henry E. Huntington before 1925. - 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, 58-59. D. S.

Description: - ff. 116 - Bound, s. XVI, in English stamped calf with Oldham's roll HMc (5), recorded for 1539 and 1553, and with another unidentified roll; on both covers, the initials "T.M."; remains of 2 fore edge catches; rebacked. - Owners' notes in the book include: f. 113v, "Md. de i libr. rem. in cus.

Armorial book plate of Andrew Coltee Ducarel (1713-85) on the front pastedown; his sale, Sotheby's, 3 April 1786, lot 1445 to Ingilby. Not identified in the descriptions of Ingilby manuscripts in HMC, Sixth Report, Appendix (1877) 352-95; sale of Lt. Col. Sir William Henry Ingilby, Bart. (1874-1950), Sotheby's, 21 October 1920, lot 23 to Maggs, Cat. 404 (1921) n. 23 with plate of f. 1. Acquired from Maggs by Henry E. Huntington in March 1924. The incorrect mention in De Ricci of a fifteenth century owner, Nicholas Leigh, is probably due to confusion with lot 105 of the Ingilby sale, a Livre des Vices et des Vertues, which had also belonged to Ducarel, and is now Oxford, Bod. Lib., Lyell 47. - 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, 59.

Description: - ff. iii + 159 (1 = contemp. flyleaf) + iii - Bound, s. XVIII, in vellum over pasteboards with 2 fore edge ties; title on the front cover "Beichtbüchlin __?___." - Written in Bavaria on the basis of the dialect and the origin of the woodcuts, in the middle of the fifteenth century; the dates 1433 and 1435 on ff. 53 and 70 are thought to be the dates of translation of the texts rather than the dates of transcription. Belonged to the Benedictine abbey of Nonnbergin the diocese of Salzburg, where it apparently bore the pressmark 26.A*.11 (not in the book). Prayers occasionally use feminine forms. Inscriptions include: on the front pastedown, "1623L" and an erasure; on f. iii verso, "Auss der Nunbergerisch Librerei" (now partially erased); on f. 1, the date 1584, the motto "Mein vertrauen steet in Cristo all __cropped___," and erased name and the title, s.

Huntington from Maggs, was accessioned in February 1926. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.
