This book showcases an important selection of forty manuscripts from the Bodleian's collections of medieval and renaissance Greek manuscripts for the first time in a modern catalogue. The introduction contains new research on the provenance of the collection and detailed descriptions of the manuscripts held within it. The book also includes forty integrated black and white illustrations of manuscript pages. The Meerman Library was composed almost exclusively of manuscripts which had belonged to the Jesuits of Clermont in Paris. It was bought for the Bodleian in 1824 from the collection of the Dutch bibliophile Gerard Meerman. Dr. Palau traces them further back to several previous owners, including Guillaume Pellicier, a French ambassador to Venice in the first half of the sixteenth century. This catalogue further demonstrates the importance of this group of manuscripts and is an essential and scholarly source of information on each item in the collection. It is an invaluable resource for scholars in the field.
