Special Collections holds c. 70 MSS dating from the C11 – C15. Many of these items are fragments, but the collection includes such highlights as a late C15 Book of Hours (MS 1/17) and a late medieval copy of Thomas Aquinas’ Cantena aurea (MS 1/ 126). Also held in Special Collections are several examples of medieval manuscripts reused as binding for printed books, and an extensive collection of medieval manuscripts held on microfilm.

For more on our medieval manuscript holdings see the listings for MS 1 (Miscellaneous Manuscripts) and MS 3 (Brett Manuscript Collection)
