THE BARROIS MANUSCRIPTS 




HE Barrois Collection of Manuscripts, the Property of the 
Kt. Hon. the Earl of Ashburnham, now offered for Sale by 
Public Auction, was formed by M. Paul Barrois, Deputy 
for Lille, before the Kevolutioii in Paris in 1848, and was purchased 
from him m bloc by the late Earl of Ashburnham in 184'.'. 

It originally contained a number of volumes which M. Delisle, 
Chief Librarian of the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, conclusively 
proved to have belonged at some time or other to that Institution. 
These Volumes were in 1888, by negotiation with the present Earl 
of Ashburnham, acquired by France. 

It comprises a large number of Manuscripts of great importance 
and varied interest — historical, theological, literary and artistic. Jt 
includes Early French Romances in Verse, many connected with 
the Arthurian Legends ; the Writings of Dante, Boccaccio, Petrarch : 
Christine de Pisan, Guillaume Lorris, Jehan de Meun, and other Italian 
and French Writers of the 13th, 14th and 15th Centuries; Early 
MSS. of the Gospels and Epistles; Codexes of the Greek and Konian 
Classics ; the Early Fathers from St. Augustine ; the Schoolmen of 
the Middle Ages ; Old Chroniclers ; a long and most valuable Series 



; Anglo X « • 1 1 1 1 : t n Charters; Original Letters and Papers relating to 
Mary Queen of Scots ; and others of special English Interest ; Modern 
Documents connected with French and English History, many 
relating to Flanders and Burgundy. 

A large number of the IfSS, are veiy finely illuminated, as the 
facsimiles in the illustrated Catalogue show, many of which are of 
very great importance for details of the Costume, Civil, Ecclesiastical, 
Military and Domestic, as well as the Architecture of the period in 
wliirh they were written. 

M . : 1 1 y of the ICSS. are in fine historical bindings, some with 
Ancient Carved Ivory Plaques. 

There are also 16th, 17th and 18th Century MSS., exhibiting 
iMMiutiful specimens of Caligraphy and Artistic Decoration.

" The . . . French tract under the name of Britton is thought to 
have been composed under the direction of Edward I. The singular 
form of it seems to countenance such a supposition ; for the contents 
of the whole book are put into the King's mouth, and the law so 
delivered has the appearance of being promulgated by the immediate 
voice of the sovereign. The work .... is attributed by some to John 
Breton, who was Bishop of Hereford and a Judge ; but as he died in 
the third year of this king's reign, and this treatise takes notice of 
statutes made in the 13th, the truth of this account is justly doubted. 
By others it is considered as nothing more than an abridgment of 
Bracton, with the subsequent alterations that had been made in the 
law ; and that it is called Britton as one of the names of Bracton him- 
self." — History of tlie English Law .... by John Reeves. 

The work has also been attributed to a John Breton, who was a 
Judge in the first year of Edward II. Note by Paulin Paris pasted

This original and UNIQUE MS. formerly belonged to THE

Heber gave £43 for it from Mr. Nicol's collection. It was sold in the 
above part of the Heber Library by Mr. Evans, in Feb. 1836, for 
£131 5s., and in 1838, and for some time after, was for sale at the 
bookseller Crozet's boutique in Paris. Modern boarded hogskin. This

extra by Thompson of Paris. Quadrio, in his Storia e ragione 
d'ogni poesia, torn, vi, pp. 581, 582, says : Questo romanzo detto il 
Guerino di Durazzo, soprannomato II Meschino . . . fu gia in volgar 
drosa composto da un certo Maestro Andrea Fiorentino. L' incontro 
che ebbe quest' opera fu quello, che ne fece moltiplicar 1' edizioni ; e 
niossi altresi gli stanieri a portarla nelle materne loro favelle, &c. He 
afterwards speaks of the French translation by Jean Decuchermoys, 
printed at Lyons in 1530, and at Paris in 1532, as "ben bizzarro 
e galante," and as containing only a small part of the original. The 
translation in the present MS. is entirely different from that which 
has been printed. It is increased to perhaps double the extent of the 
original romance ; the greatest amplification being in the 7th and 8th 
books, which are equal in volume to the first six altogether. There 
are erasures at the end of the 4th and at the end of the 8th book ; the 
passages obliterated probably contained the information that the work 
was translated from the Italian, and the date of the performance. The 
great popularity of the original is alluded to by Quadrio in the extract 
quoted above. Tullia d' Aragona turned the prose romance into Italian 
verse, about the middle of the sixteenth century.

is prefixed a modern title : Romanz de Sapience cest la creinte de 
Diex ; this error has arisen from a misreading of the first line in some

HOR^E BEAT^E MARINE VIRGINIS CUM CALENDARIO. AVERY 
SPLENDIDLY ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM 

(225 //.), finely written in bold gothic in red and black, by a French scribe 
and illuminator, the Calendar in FRENCH on 12 leaves within exquisite 
scroll fioreate borders, in which are introduced fabulous monsters and 
humorous grotesque animals, in some of which the ordinal'// subjection of 
beasts to man is reversed, as A Horse riding a man, A Wild Boar hunting 
his hunter; A Stag is shooting with a bow, A Fox sliaves a goat, An Ox 
plays the bagpipes, An Ass the viola, &c. ; in the bottom margins are 
Circular Miniatures of the Signs of the Zodiac and Occupations of the 
Month, in an unusually clever and highly-finished manner. The Borders 
of the Text are also of a most unusual character, liaving 
among the conventional leafy scrolls numerous figures of animals, many 
being treated in a humorous or satirical manner. On the first page, A Fig 
rides a camel, clothed in a bishop's mitre and a red cloak, A Bear has a 
shield with an ogre's head on it, and charges another animal with a lance, 
&c. In other borders occur human figures in various natural occupations, 
nude human figures and monsters, animals and birds, natural and mon- 
strous ; Hunting scenes treated humorously ; Tico Greyhounds course a hare 
on crutches, &c. Wild animals, are represented in their native conditions, 
Dragons and other monsters play musical instruments. In the Text are 
10 very splendid Miniatures, representing the four Evangelists (St. 
Matthew wearing spectacles) ; The Virgin and Child enshrined by angels ; 
The Virgin and Child silting in a garden outside Jerusalem [See FLA TE] ; 
The Salutation ; David praying ; St. James Die Apostle ; and St. Bar- 
tholomew. There are also hundreds of large and small illuminated orna- 
mental initials with inner boi-ders and details. Purple velvet binding, 
stamped in mosaics of gold and colours, double" with purple silk, gold clasps, 
the catches having a perforated monogram, joints, g. and gauffred edges, by 
Simier, with his ticket. (XII) Mo. S.EC. XV 

%* A Remarkable and Magnificent Specimen of the Highest 
Style of the French Illuminator's Art of the middle of the 15th 
century. The figures, costumes, landscapes, the unconventional 
treatment of the borders, all reveal the work of a real artist, untram- 
melled by custom and revelling in grotesque and humorous ideas. 
Unfortunately in one respect, but perhaps not in another, the MS. has 
been left unfinished by the illuminator (not by the scribe), but all the 
unfinished leaves have indications of the methods adopted in the 
decoration of the MS., such as gold dots and frames, figures in outline, 
colourings half filled in, spaces for miniatures, intermediate pages 
with finished borders and initials only, &c, and we are thus afforded 
a unique opportunity of studying intimately the progress of the 
artist in his work.

tracts are taken: — "Ce precieux volume, ignore de tous les biblio- 
graphes, et dont il n'est pas meme fait mention dans la ' Bibliotheque 
de la France,' ou Ton a si curieusement recherche tous les manuscrits 
qui traiteut de notre histoire, est compose ainsi qu'il suit. . . . Un

de Nostradamus, et dans lequel est renferme le titre . . . . ; la dedi- 
cace au due de Lorraine, signee Nostradamus (sic), 2 f. ; un feuillet 
blanc ; quelques advis singuliers touchant la tacon d'escrire un poeme 
heroique, 19 f. Suivent cinq f., dont les trois premiers et le recto du 
quatrieme sout occupes par des pieces de vers latins et francois u la 
louange de l'auteur ; le verso du dernier etoit destine a recevoir le 
portrait du prince auquel le poeme est dedie. Le recto du cinquieme 
feuillet presente le portrait de l'auteur, trace par lui-nieme au crayon 
rouge et legerement arrete a la plume ; le verso, un sonnet dedicatoire 
egalement signe Nostradame. Le reste est rempli par les dix-sept 
livres du poeme, en 363 f. chiffres ; plus, un sonnet en guise d'epilogue, 
sur une page non chiffree, qui termine le volume. . . . Au merite 
d'etre unique, ce livre joint celui d'une magnifique conservation et 
d'une condition tout-a-fait curieuse. L'ecriture de Cesar de Nostra- 
damus est aussi lisible que la plus belle impression. ... II est incroy- 
able, enfin, qu'un livre si peu connu, et qui a passe pendant deux 
siecles de proprtetaire en proprietaire, sans eveiller une seule fois 
l'attention d'un seul d'entre eux, soit parvenu jusqu'a nous dans un si 
brillant etat de fraicheur et d'integrite\ . . . L'Hippiade, toute mau- 
vaise qu'elle est, comme poeme, n'est pas sans merite sous le rapport 
des recherches, et je m'etonne qu'elle n'ait pas trouve un editeur dans 
le dix-septieme siecle, oil Ton s'occupoit avec zele des illustrations de 
notre histoire. A combien de belles recherches et d'importantes 
deeouverte8 n'auroit elle pas donne lieu sur Petat personnel des Croises, 
sur leurs families, leurs alliances, leurs blasons, leurs couleurs, richesses 
dedaignees par le Tasse et inappreciables aux yeux de nos erudite ! 
La ' Jerusalem' est un diamant pour l'homme sensible et pour le poete ; 
1' 'Hippiade' auroit ete une mine inepuisable pour ces eplucheurs de 
genealogies, qui vieillissoient dans la poussiere des chartes et des 
chronique8." Then follows an analysis of the poem with extracts, <fec.

receipt for which is in the volume, as well as an Autograph Letter of

ornamented initials by an Italian hand apparently. The arms of 
Francois de Rochechouart, to whom it is dedicated, and for whom it

morocco, full gilt floreate back, broad ornamental floreate borders, 
g. e. The MS. was afterwards in the Library of the Comte de 
MacCarthy Keagh, and in that of Geo. Hibbert. The volume contains 
127 large initials, each letter in gold on a ground of very delicate pen 
and ink ornamentation in black and white (a few are in colours) ; at the 
head of nearly every initial is an historiated miniature in pen and ink, 
connected with the subject of the chapter following, which consists 
largely of biblical, classical, and mythological subjects, many of the 
figures being drawn nude, and others in the Greek and Roman costume 
of the period. On the reverse of fol. 2 is a drawing Z\ by 5£, repre- 
senting the Creation of Adam and Eve, and two other episodes in the 
Creation, with a i border, containing 7 circular drawings of Old 
Testament subjects, and one of the emblazoned arms of Rochechouart. 
On reverse of fol. 46 is another representing a Battle of the Romans 
under Julius Caesar against the Gauls, 4f by 5$ in. ; and another of a 
Roman interior connected with the life of Octavius Caesar. All 
THESE MINIATURES AND INITIALS ARE VERY HIGHLY FINISHED AND 
ARE EVIDENTLY THE WORK OF A SKILLED ARTIST.

tien who was tutor to Henry IV. It was afterwards in the Hohen- 
dorf collection. Subsequently belonging to Henry Drury, Hibbert, 
and Hanrott.' The authorship of both the original and translation of 
this work has been a subject of much speculation, and still remains 
undecided ; Philippe de Maizieres, Raoul de Presles, and several 
others, have had their respective advocates. The first miniature is in 
2 compartments, measures 6 by 7 in. with a fine illuminated ornamental 
initial within a rich ornamental border, and an outer border of ornamental 
scrolls ; the other of two men in a library (same size), with similar borders.
