Very nice, clean catalogues which together represent the eighth and ninth portions of a rare book auction held June 4, 1974 and March 25, 1975 in London. Not only are they hardcover and illustrated with photographs (both color and black and white) of the illuminated Hornby Manuscripts of the 9th to the 16th centuries -- a total of 68 in all -- but Volume I shows realized prices inked in, as well as notes that may well be of interest to the buyer. Major John Roland Abby was an important British collector who sold some of his manuscripts porior to his death in 1969. These, of course, were sold later.
