MS. Laud Lat. 46

Summary Catalogue no.: 1012

Rámon Lull, Margarete Porete, pseudo-Augustine, (pseudo-) Jerome, (pseudo-) Seneca; A-C northern Italy, 15th century, second quarter and middle

Physical Description

Three parts, together early, part A created as a supplement to part B by one of the scribes of part C. Early foliation, apparently by the same (fifteenth-century) hand which added the partial table of contents on fol. i(a) recto, probably the main scribe of A and C.
Secundo Folio: (fol. iii) utrum beata uirgo
Secundo Folio: (fol. 2) inconueniens. Ait
Secundo Folio: (fol. 96) pecunia perdidi
Form: codex
Extent: i + 11 + 94 + 15 + i leaves
Dimensions (leaf): 295 × 215 mm.
Foliation: Modern foliation in pencil: i-x (i is doubled), 1-110 (67-70 are omitted, fol. 73 four-foliated, fol. 93 doubled)
Foliation: Earlier foliation in ink visible on some pages, some trimmed off.

Binding

Brown tanned calf over laminated pulpboard for Abp. Laud, 1637–1639; rebacked.

History

Origin: In the revised Quarto catalogue R. W. Hunt described this volume as 'written in Germany', presumably on palaeographical grounds. But on grounds of script, abbreviations and codicology an Italian origin for the whole volume seems more likely (as suggested by Römer (1971) p. 125). The script of fols. i-x and 95-105 is particularly marked by Italian features and spellings (such as 'x' for 's', 'concluxiones', 'glorioxus' etc.); Italian characteristics in fols. 1-94 include the abbreviations for 'qui', '-tur' and spellings such as 'sesaginta' (fol. 80vb).

Provenance and Acquisition

This manuscript is perhaps to be associated with others acquired by Laud from Italy (apparently mostly from Venice) in 1637 (Quarto Catalogue, p. xxvii). 'E 89' on fol. ii recto is the former Laudian shelfmark.

William Laud, 1573-1645, 1637.

Part of his third donation to the Bodleian, 1639.
