Description

Although Special Collections holds manuscript fragments that are older, this is the oldest intact manuscript in the collection. It is a work on grammar, written in Latin with passages in Greek. The binding of this manuscript is later than the text, but it is also interesting because it’s a good example of a fifteenth-century German binding in blind-tooled pigskin. The back board still shows discoloration from the former site of a metal clasp.
