The Manuscripts collection

The Manuscripts Collection was catalogued by Dr Richard Peter Maddox, following the form started by Gordon Anderson

The microfilms, photocopies, photographs, and fiche of actual manuscripts, ordered by Professor Anderson from all over the world, are organised in Anderson's own card index arrangement. This is set out alphabetically by city, rather than grouping by country, as is the practice in RISM.

A typical record:

Bibliotheque nationale
Ms fr. 146 [Fauv] Complete MFR; complete MFSp; complete PRINT
RISM ref. B.IV2, 163

In this example, the one manuscript is held in three of the six formats maintained in the collection which are:

  • MFR - Microfilm (MFR)
  • MFSp - microfilm spools in small cans
  • MFE - microfilm excerpt, cut into strips
  • Mfi - microfiche
  • PRINT - xerographic copy and photographs
  • HAND - handwritten copy
