Paléographie des classiques latins

Émile Chatelain's Paléographie des classiques latins was produced in 14 fascicles between 1884 and 1900, and consists of more than 200 facsimiles of leaves from medieval manuscripts, with explanatory text. The leaves range in date from the fourth to the fifteenth century, and together demonstrate the range of scripts in which the main Latin classics were transmitted from antiquity to the modern world. More than thirty classical authors are represented in the collection, which has been an important paleographical reference work for more than a century. Collection size: approximately 305 items.
