New page for references

I’ve added a new page to list websites where one can find digitised manuscripts of the same era as that of the VM.

  1. Have you considered the marked deterioration in the handwriting? If so, would you share any views you might have about that.

    • Thomas Sauvaget says:

      No I haven’t yet, but the variation in the handwriting is certainly something interesting that I would like to discuss later on.

      What also is puzzling is how unremarkable the end of f116r (i.e. the end of the whole text) actually is: no nice drawing, no evident signature or closing mark. In fact the last paragraph does not even have a nice gallow, and starts with the rare ‘o4o’ sequence of symbols.

      • I seem to remember reading a comment by one of the people who’d know – Nick, or Rene perhaps – that fol.116r was not originally the final folio. But there’s no particular reason that a florilegium – a kind of scrapbook – would have an intended final page.

      • I think – can’t give the reference – that Nick Pelling has pointed out that our last page probably wasn’t, originally.
