DescriptionA selection of over 200 volumes of medieval and early modern manuscripts, dating from the 9th to the 17th century. Some of Scotland's most important early manuscripts are included in the many Scottish volumes.

Most of the manuscripts were collected by the Advocates Library, the forerunner of the National Library of Scotland.
