Subject: Manuscripts Database
The Penn Library is pleased to announce that it is now hosting a web
version of the Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts. This unique database
of more than 60,000 entries tracks the movement of manuscripts written
prior to 1600 through the book and auction trade in ca. 1800. It has
been compiled from book and auction catalogues, chiefly from the UK and
North America. With nearly 30 discrete, searchable fields, it is a
powerful tool for those doing research in and using medieval and early
modern manuscripts. The database is the property of Lawrence J.
Schoenberg, who is actively adding to it and updating it.
