Detail of illustration and text from a leaf from a French Book of Hours, c. 1300 (MS 5650/89).

Last year the University was fortunate to make an important new acquisition, the European Manuscripts Collection. This display will feature highlights dating from the twelfth to the seventeenth century, including illuminated leaves from the Books of Hours, breviaries and graduals.

The collection has been generously presented to the University by a private collector with the support of the Art Fund.
