Manuscript Project

This study of a manuscript is intended to provide an overview of the Taymouth Hours (Yates Thompson 13) as part of an assignment for Linda Main’s Spring 2013 History of Books and Libraries (LIBR 280) course.

The manuscript project is divided into three sections:

  • Background (includes title, context, authors/creators, and provenance)
  • Physical Description (includes size, binding, material written on, collation, ink, rubrication, historiated initials, and decoration)
  • Script (includes handwriting style, incipit, explicit, subscriptio, colophon, and marginalia)
