HLS MS No. 177

England. Statutes, Magna Carta to 5 Edw. 3

ca. 1335

http://nrs.harvard.edu/urn-3:HLS.LIBR:12987959

 

 

The HOLLIS cataloguing may be found here.

The cataloguing in Baker’s English Legal Manuscripts, 1, no. 108 reads as follows:

“108 STATUTA VETERA
“MS. 177.

“C.xiv, 202 ff., illum. initials, miniature of a king.

“Sold at S. 4 May 1948, no. 433, to Thorp; purchased from him, and received on 16 June 1948.”

The HLS bookplate and Baker’s provenance may be reconciled if we assume that Gilbert Holland provided the funds that allowed HLS to purchase the manuscript.

The manuscript is small, approximately 100 mm X 75 mm.

Bound in board covered in leather, probably in the 19th century.

The two blank folios at the beginning and at the end were probably added when the manuscript was bound.

The blank folios at the beginning are not foliated. The first seven folios after that are foliated in heavy arabic numbers, certainly not contemporary with the manuscript. When the manuscript was placed in the PDS we continued that foliation digitally until we reached the first added blank folio at the end. That gave us 203 folios; the HOLLIS and Baker foliation ends with the last folio that has writing on it.

Following the blank bifolium at the beginning, the manuscript begins with two ternions that contain the table and capitularia. The main text of the manuscript contains 23 regular quaternions, followed by a duernion, which ends with the end of the last statute (1 Edw. 3, stat. 1). The notes on ‘Dampna in triplo’ begin what was probably originally also a duernion, but two folios have been torn out, without, so far as we can tell, any loss of text.

Collation: 12 (unfoliated), 2-36 (f. 1–12), 4-268 (f. 13–196), 27–284 (f. 197–203, fols. torn out after f. 202v and 203v), 292 (unfoliated).

Most, perhaps all, of the pages of the main manuscript are laid out in pencil with lines for 26 lines of text, and a rather large space at the bottom. A later hand has made some corrections to the texts, particularly in the statute of Westminster II.

The condition of the manuscript is generally quite good, an exception being made for fol. 1r, which is faded. Except for ‘Dampna in triplo’, the script is a regular, professional, semi-cursive book hand.

The manuscript is decorated profusely throughout with illuminated major initials with floral strapwork, painted initials for subheadings, red and blue paragraph marks, and an occasional grotesque. Color is varied, and there is much use of gold leaf. The initial ‘E’ of Magna Carta is decorated with a minature of a king and much color.

The decoration continues almost to the end of the manuscript. There is none on ‘Dampna in triplo’. The final statutes of Edward III have only the major initials illuminated, and  after the Statute of Northampton the headers and headings have been supplied by a more informal hand. There may be a change of hand at the beginning of the statutes of Edward III. The contents and capitularia at the beginning of the manuscript, however, includes all of the statutes of Edward III except for 1 Edward 3, stat. 1. If the Edward III material is a bit later than the rest of the manuscript, it is certainly not much later. The last datable item in the manuscript is 5 Edward 3 (1331), and there is nothing in the manuscript that would lead us to assign a date to it much after that year.

The contents of the manuscript suggest that in the early years of Edward III a distinction between ‘Statuta vetera’ and ‘Statuta nova’ had not yet emerged.
