|16th/17th century codex, bound in a |
(non- Beneventan) fragment
I never really expected to find anything in the Beneventan script, a scarce and collectible Italian style of writing that pretty much avoided the innovations of Carolingian and Gothic scripts, maintaining its own sphere influence pretty much right through the middle ages.
|Two more sets of related Beneventan fragments|
You can also find there a variety of interesting--and even odball--items from roughly the thirteenth century to the seventeenth, from binding fragments and charters all the way to complete codices. Plenty of fun things to look at for medievalists, even if you don't see anything you'd like to buy.
|A nice bifolium recycled as a wrapper|
Of course, if you do find something you can't live without, the catalogue has instructions for getting hold of me!
