"The Auchinleck Manuscript," ed. David Burnley and Alison Wiggins. [<http://auchinleck.nls.uk/>. "The Auchinleck Manuscript (NLS Adv MS 19.2.1) is one of the National Library of Scotland's greatest treasures. Produced in London in the 1330s, it provides a unique insight into the English language and literature that Chaucer and his generation grew up with and were influenced by. It acquired its name from its first known owner, Lord Auchinleck, who discovered the manuscript in 1740 and donated it to the precursor of the National Library in 1744. Among the features offered by this site are: A full transcription of the manuscript with sophisticated search facilities; a digital facsimile of the entire manuscript; background information on the origins and importance of the manuscript."] [* Subject heading: manuscripts (facsimiles and facsimile editions); Edinburgh, National Library of Scotland, Advocates Library, MS 19.2.1 *]

Working in a French noble library around the year 1410, the anonymous compiler of the Chronique told the story of humanity--nearly six thousand years by his reckoning--by editing historical texts at his disposal, arranging them in parallel columns on a vertical scroll, and filling the inter-columnar space with complex genealogical diagrams. The Chronique reflects a particular and particularly French self-image and worldview that become increasingly apparent as the reader traverses its direct and unbroken line from the Bible, Egypt, Greece and Troy to the histories of the Papacy, the Roman and Holy Roman Empires, the Crusades, and the royal houses of France and England."] [* Subject heading: manuscripts (facsimiles and facsimile editions); La Chronique anonyme universelle *]

[<http://ydc2.yale.edu/research-support/digitally-enabled-scholarship-medieval-manuscripts>. Four members of the Yale faculty currently have projects using the Canvas Viewer/Mirador tool: Alastair Minnis, Jessica Brantley, Anders Winroth, and Holly Rushmeier. "The four Yale faculty projects will utilize the Canvas Viewer/Mirador for image comparison and lightweight annotation. This tool, developed by Stanford University as part of a companion grant for Digital Manuscript Interoperability funded by the Andrew W. Mellon foundation, is an image viewer designed for the study of manuscripts. Researchers can select and view multiple pages from one or more manuscripts and study high-resolution images side-by-side using zooming and panning tools. Researchers can also display and compare various images of the same page, such as multispectral bands. The tool also supports the ability to view images with annotations, including transcriptions." The Canvas Viewer/Mirador tool allows for the photographing of manuscript leaves with careful colour control and multispectral filters which then can be analayzed spectographically in order to answer questions such as "is the pink in this particular decorative element the same pink as that in some other decorative element?"

The French text, written by the colourful figure Gaston Phébus, Count of Foix, between 1387 and 1389, contains not only technical details about the practice of huntsmanship in the 14th century, but also exact descriptions of the wild animals which were then hunted. Of the 44 known manuscripts with Gaston Phébus's text--most of them dating from the 15th century and a few from the beginning of the 16th century--the present manuscript, dated 1405-10, is one of the best known and most important. All its 87 miniatures are reproduced here in colour. The commentary, by an expert in hunting iconography, not only describes the subject matter of each miniature, but also summarizes and explains the text of each chapter."] [* Subject heading: manuscripts (facsimiles and facsimile editions); manuscript production; decoration and illustration (illumination); Gaston Phoebus, Livre de la chasse; medieval hunting manual; venery *]

Thomson, R[odney] M. The Bury Bible. Woodbridge, Suffolk: Boydell Press / Boydell and Brewer, 2008. [Publisher's description: "The Bury Bible (Cambridge, Corpus Christi College MS 2) is one of the capital monuments of Romanesque art. Produced at the abbey of Bury St Edmunds in about 1135, its importance was such that the abbey chronicler recorded its commissioning: 'Hervey, the sacrist, commissioned a large Bible for his brother the Prior and had it beautifully illuminated by Master Hugh.' Parchment was specially bought from Scotland for the illuminations. There were originally two volumes; the Old Testament survives, and, with 357 leaves, a format of 514 x 355mm, six full page miniatures, three historiated initials and thirty nine decorated initials, it is an imposing volume. It belongs to a small group of English twelfth-century Bibles of outstanding quality, which includes the Lambeth and Winchester Bibles. It is arguable that Master Hugh was the greatest artist of all those who worked on these books, working in a tradition developed at St Albans abbey and yet a great innovator, bringing a more naturalistic approach. This facsimile, at just under full size, affords the opportunity to appreciate some of the masterpieces of English romanesque painting. All the illuminations are reproduced in colour, from photographs specially taken by the HUMI project of the University of Keio. Professor Thomson provides a full discussion of the manuscript's production and its place among English manuscripts and art, together with photographs of comparable material."] [* Subject heading: manuscripts (facsimiles and facsimile editions); Bible; manuscript decoration and illustration (illumination); manuscript culture; Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, Parker Library, MS 2 (Bury Bible); Abbey of Bury St Edmunds *]
