Highlights include a book that once belonged to the French jurist Guillaume Prousteau (1626-1715), in a 16th century blind stamped binding; four rare tracts printed by Nicolaus Jenson in Venice in 1471/72, bound together and previously not catalogued as separate items; a book of sermons heavily annotated by a contemporary reader; and an Italian translation of Seneca.
Regular visitors to the website may notice that we have now split the provenance index for individuals into three pages. This is because the page was becoming so long that we could no longer add any further data to it! As the project grows with more details of books being added, we will have to split other index pages similarly.
