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 leaf fragments from over 30 different medieval manuscripts ranging in date from the 12th century through the 15th century.
Acquisitions for this collection are continually added through purchases.
