[Author]. [Manuscript Title]. [City]: [Year]. Medieval Manuscript Leaves Collection, McHugh Special Collections, The University of Scranton.
Most medieval manuscripts were created between the fall of the Roman Empire through the 15th century. Printed books became popular during the second half of the 15th century and the manuscript tradition began to die out, although manuscript books continued to be produced well into the print era.
This collection contains 38 leaf fragments from 32 different medieval manuscripts ranging in date from the 12th century through the 15th century.
Acquisitions for this collection are continually added through purchases.
Items in this collection are continually processed as new acquisitions are purchased.
Approximately 30 leaves were digitized in Fall 2014 as part of the manuscriptlink project. Leaves were digitized in-house, using an Epson Expression 10000XL scanner. Images were captured at 300-800 dpi, 48-bit color in uncompressed TIFF format.
