Facsimiles of Medieval Manuscripts and Incunabula

Home

This guide organizes the medieval manuscript and incunabula collection by style, theme, and geographic region. Because many of the subcategories overlap each manuscript has been placed in as many categories as possible to maximize search results.

Each individual entry has information about the original production date and location, the manuscript’s unique shelfmark, a brief description of the book, a qualification of the quality and completeness of the facsimile, and the language of the accompanying commentary, if there is one. There are many types of facsimiles, from high-quality reproductions that include even the worm holes and sewing structures of the originals, to black-and-white copies and partial facsimiles that reproduce only the most important illustrations. 

Additional facsimiles can also be found using the library catalog's Advanced Search feature. Simply use one of the following search terms under "Subject Heading" to find materials in Special Collections, the Strozier circulating collections, and the Allen Music Library
