14th century Bifolium from the Rouse Manuscript Collection.
One bifolium from a commercially-produced manuscript of Guido de Baysio's Rosarium written and illuminated in Bologna toward the end of the thirteenth century. The bifolium witnesses again that commercial manuscript production was a complex process involving numerous specialists, among them scribes, illuminators, decorators, notators, and correctors, each coordinated and paid independently for their work by a contractor. Given by the late Lawrence Witten to RHR after his lecture on Paris stationers and pecia production given to the Friends of the Beinecke Library, New Haven, Connecticut in May 1984.
