Introduction to Western Manuscripts at Dartmouth College The origins of the College's early manuscript collection are undocumented. Imprecise acquisition records of the nineteenth century indicate that some single leaves were acquired by gift at least as early as the presidency of Samuel Colcord Bartlett (1877-1892). It is known that President Bartlett brought materials back from the Middle East and Europe for the Library's collections and the first early manuscripts may well have been acquired at that time. The impetus to develop a significant collection of early manuscripts for teaching purposes lies with the work of Harold Goddard Rugg, sometime Assistant Librarian of the College. Mr. Rugg labored for nearly fifty years to develop a small but rich collection of early manuscripts so that students at Dartmouth could examine and study materials from all eras of the history of the written word.

Medieval Manuscripts (Free Library of Philadelphia) Our manuscript collection includes most of the kinds of books used between 1000 and 1500 A.D.: prayer books and poetry, Bibles and political propaganda, philosophical works, and fantastic histories. Some manuscripts are elaborate and beautiful works of art; others are humble "owner-produced" books, copied out from a borrowed copy by someone who needed a particular text. Each one tells us something about a long-vanished age. The Free Library’s digital manuscript collection includes two different sorts of objects: complete manuscript books, or “codices,” and separate leaves and cuttings—fragments separated from their original contexts. With the images you will find basic information about the object pictured: when and where it was made, and what its imagery depicts.

Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, Paris, France In the heart of Paris's museum land, neighbouring the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay, a few minutes from the Grand and Petit Palais, the Palais de Tokyo and the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac has an exceptional location on the banks of the River Seine, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. The arts of Africa, Oceania, Asia, and the Americas now form part of the historical and artistic grand tour of the capital. The Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac is an innovative cultural institution - museum, educational and research centre, and public living space all in one. Built on one of the last available sites in the heart of Paris, the architectural design of this original project is the work of Jean Nouvel. A museum of non-Western arts During the 20th century, non-Western arts started to be seen in museum collections.
