The Digital Walters

W.23, Psalter


This manuscript is housed in a sumptuous binding, which, though not original to the book, contains several striking medieval elements. The manuscript is listed in 1864 as coming from the collection of Guglielmo Libri, who was notorious for having ornate bindings and inscriptions added to existing manuscripts, so it is likely the binding was created for him. It was listed as an authentic, fully medieval treasure binding in Libri's catalog. Because of the fragile nature of the binding, the book was not able to be opened, and the information regarding the interior in this catalog entry is derived from earlier images and notes.
