Directory of Institutions in the United States and Canada with Pre-1600 Manuscripts
This Directory is the first part of a continuation of the Census of Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the United States and Canada by de Ricci and Wilson, published in 1935 and 1937, and its 1962 Supplement. The present Directory details, when known, the current location of the collections listed in the original Census and Supplement and identifies an additional 281 North American repositories of pre-1600 European manuscripts in Western languages that were not included in the earlier works. For all 475 North American repositories, this Directory provides updated contact data and general information on pre-1600 manuscript holdings. Following the organizational scheme of the original Census and Supplement, entries are organized alphabetically by state and city, with public collections listed first for each city, followed by private.
