Description
This finding aid lists the Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts holdings of the Department of Special Collections as cited in Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts at the University of California, Los Angeles (1991), compiled by Mirella Ferrari and edited by R.H. Rouse (Call Number - Z6621 C123m 1991). The catalog identifies the contents, illumination, physical makeup, binding, and provenance for all Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts in the UCLA library system. These manuscripts can be found in the Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library's History and Special Collections Division, the John E. Anderson Graduate School of Management Library's Robert E. Gross collection of Rare Books in Business and Economics, the Music Library's Hathaway Collection, and UCLA Library Special Collections. The various Indexes are brief lists of all manuscripts in the UCLA library system while the Container List consists only of the holdings in UCLA Library Special Collections.
Background
The present catalog, begun over a decade ago, stands at the beginning of modern cataloging of medieval manuscripts in North America. Its completion may serve as the occasion to pause for a moment and examine the beginnings and progress to date of manuscript cataloging in America, as well as to offer some comment on what it has taught us and how best to continue.1
