The Burley Manuscript
Peter Redford
Manchester University Press

The physical qualities of the miscellany are described, attention being given to paper size and weight, handwriting and watermarks. On this basis, the collection may be divided into five sections, useful for the analysis of provenance. Items in the manuscript are analysed by type (verse, letter, translation, etc) and language (English, Latin, Italian, French and Spanish), and the results are presented graphically. The database used in this analysis is described, and a case presented for the use of similar databases in relation to other miscellanies, that are hard to catalogue conventionally.
