  • Danfrie Reconsidered. Philippe Danfrié's (d. 1606) Civilite Types
    • Authors: Vervliet H.
      Pages: 3 - 45
      Abstract: Though little known to the general public, to type historians Philippe Danfrie (c. 1532–1606) will be recognized as a competitor to Robert Granjon’s claim for being the inventor of the first Civilité type, a mid-sixteenth-century gothic script type that superseded the French bâtarde. The bâtarde was the usual script for vernacular texts north of the Alps (with the exception of German speaking countries): authors such as Caxton or Rabelais were read in this script. In their Civilité Types (Oxford, 1966) Carter & Vervliet described five of Danfrie’s founts. This article aims to present an update of their work and to expand it with four more founts. Danfrie’s civil career is broadly documented and that may be a help for gaining a closer insight in the characteristics of a late sixteenth-century type production that balanced between an incunabular model of private type ownership and the seventeenth-century norm of sales of cast types through large monopolistic typefoundries.

  • The Thomas Mans, their Books, and Jesus College Librarianship
    • Authors: Hanna R.
      Pages: 46 - 73
      Abstract: On 21 January 1684/5, Thomas Man, a thirty-year-old Fellow, made a substantial donation of manuscripts to Jesus College, Cambridge. These included a substantial number of books from medieval institutional collections, including at least thirty-one from Durham cathedral priory. The essay ascertains the extent of the donation, a discussion intertwined with that of librarianship at Jesus College. It also offers information about the collection activity of Man’s father, also Thomas, who assembled the collection, and points to several Man books now preserved elsewhere.

  • A New Source for the History of Eighteenth-Century Bookselling: The
           Journal of Stephen Armitage
    • Authors: King P.
      Pages: 74 - 88
      Abstract: This article brings to light and discusses a rare survival, the journal of an eighteenth-century bookdealer, identified here as the Irish seller Stephen Armitage (d. 1799). The journal details business and leisure activities in England and Ireland between 1776 and 1784 and includes ten contemporary topographical plates pasted in.

  • New Light on the History of Isaac Newton's Library
    • Authors: Thomson K.
      Pages: 89 - 97
      Abstract: In the standard scholarly work, The Library of Isaac Newton published by CUP in 1978, John Harrison makes two significant assumptions about the library’s early history which are incorrect. This paper highlights the necessary revisions, including the unnoticed role played by Mrs Jane Musgrave, Jane Austen’s godmother, in the library’s preservation. It also proposes for the first time a plausible reason why John Huggins, Warden of the Fleet Prison, bought the library from the executors immediately after Newton’s death.

  • The Location of the Fullest Manuscript of the Louth Park Abbey Chronicle,
           Brutus to 1413
    • Authors: Smith T.
      Pages: 98 - 101
      Abstract: This note discusses the Louth Park Abbey Chronicle, which survives in three manuscripts in varying levels of completeness, the fullest of which has changed hands several times since the only edition of the text was produced in 1891. Further study of the text and its two additional manuscripts has been impossible, however, as the fullest manuscript has been untraced since 1987, at the latest. This article examines the provenance of this lost manuscript and identifies its current location.

  • Maidenhead to Conventicle: The Curious Transformation of a Woodcut
    • Authors: Williams W.
      Pages: 102 - 109
      Abstract: Thomas Heywood’s play A Maidenhead Well Lost (1634), printed by Nicholas Okes, has a woodcut larger than the usual page size for this quarto on its title-page and later in the book. It was clearly devised for this book only. Aside from this curious fact, the woodcut, considerably modified, was used later in John Taylor’s polemical The Brownists conventicle (1641) which was not printed by Okes who was dead by then. Although the existence of this woodcut is noted by scholars, notably Greg and Foakes, it has never been given careful bibliographical study. This paper provides such a study and considers the curious use of the woodcut in both books.

  • Thomas Fisher Library's Initiative to Report Holdings to the English
           Short- Title Catalogue Online Database
    • Authors: Paul H.
      Pages: 110 - 111
      Abstract: In 2018, while reporting the acquisition of a copy of William Caxton's Cicero, staff at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library at the University of Toronto discovered that their institution's eligible holdings were severely under-reported in the English Short-Title Catalogue online database. As many readers of The Library will know, the ESTC website acts as a centralized database designed to help scholars locate every known copy of extant British letterpress printed between 1474 and 1800. Although the Thomas Fisher Library holds some 1,300 books in its ‘short title catalogue’ collection (and many other relevant items in other collections), fewer than one hundred of these records were recorded in the ESTC census. Recognizing that records in the ESTC database are an important way for researchers to locate copies at the Fisher Library, Head of Rare Books and Manuscripts, Pearce Carefoote, has authorized a project to report holdings to the English Short- Title Catalogue online database and simultaneously add detail to the library's internal online catalogue.

  • A New Project for Provenance Research in Brazil
    • Authors: de Azevedo F.
      Pages: 112 - 112
      Abstract: Provenance research in Latin America generally, and Brazil in particular, lags well behind that of European countries. Brazil has a history of library dispersals over the past 300 years: the Jesuits, Benedictines, Franciscans, and Dominicans all built impressive libraries, now largely scattered, with books and manuscripts brought from the old world; cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Recife, and Maranhao were cosmopolitan entrepots for wealthy foreigners who left their books there. Since March 2019, the Department of Librarianship of the Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro) has been conducting the research project A Eloquencia dos Livros: Marcas de Proveniencia (‘The Eloquence of Books: Provenance Marks’), co-ordinated by Professor Fabiano Cataldo de Azevedo and Professor Stefanie Cavalcanti Freire. This project is hosted by what was the first library school in Latin America, founded in 1911 at the National Library of Brazil, with a curriculum based on that of the École nationale des chartes in Paris.
