    Folio 9v in Psalterium.

    Date Created: 1310 (approximate)
    Library locations
    Spencer Collection
    Shelf locator: Spencer Collection Ms. 026
    Ownership : Written at the Augustinian Priory of Worksop (Radnor) in Nottinghamshire, by John Tickhill, prior of the monastery from 1303-14. Fourteen early coats of arms on various pages. The Marquess of Lothian collection. His sale (1932) to Rosenbach.

    Content : 30 lines per page (38 on ff. 3-6) in two columns, ruled in blackish-brown ink. Collation: quire I has 2 folios, which were probably added in the fifteenth century. The remaining quires, II-XX, have eight folios each. Prickings visible.

    Content : D.D. Egbert argues that the psalter was probably executed while John Tickhill was prior of Worksop, between 1303 and 1314, and perhaps more precisely to ca. 1310. See Egbert, ch. 1, for discussion of evidence. Last quire in a different hand?

    Content : De Ricci, 1340. Egbert volume. Library dossier.

    Content : Initials of various sizes and types of decoration, border decoration, rubrics, penwork, etc. Decorations are done in many colors, and much gold leaf is used. Decorations were not completed -- those later in the manuscript are missing text or coloring.

    Content : Parchment

    Content : Richly decorated with biblical scenes at the foot of each column, historiated initials, grotesques, animals and human faces.

    Content: The final quarter of the manuscript is decorated incompletely. Photographs and slides exist of all folios of this manuscript. The foliation only goes to f. 154; it skips f. 2 and is thereafter incorrect, but for convenience it will be used here.
