2Title:  [Hybrid book of letters of Poliziano, Symmachus, and Laudinus]   
 Creator:  Poliziano, Angelo, 1454-1494 | Symmachus, Quintus Aurelius, ca. 340-402 | Laudiviode Vezzano | MehmedII, Sultan of the Turks, 1432-1481 | Martens, Thierry, 1450?-1534 | Schott, Johann, 1477-1548 | Cuntius, Leonhardus | Jahn, Otto, 1813-1869 | Schennis, Friederich de, 1852-1918 
 Notes:  Collection of two published works with manuscript additions related to one of the works and manuscript annotations. The letters of Poliziano that comprise just over half the volume were published by Theodericus Martini (Thierry Martens) in Antwerp in 1514 and include letters to numerous Italian humanists, church officials, and secular leaders. Recipients include Lorenzo de' Medici (referred to in the letter as Poliziano's patron), Piero de' Medici, Giovanni Pico della Mirandola, Ludovico Sforza (Duke of Milan), Iacopo Antiquari (secretary to Ludovico Sforza), Aldo Manuzio, Jacopo Ammannati Piccolomini (Cardinal of Pavia), Francesco Piccolomini (Cardinal of Siena, later Pope Pius III), and Pope Innocent VIII. Following the printed text are manuscript copies, a few years earlier than the printed letters, of 17 letters to Poliziano or between friends of Poliziano, most of whom are represented in the printed collection, such as John II of Portugal, Lorenzo de' Medici, Ludovico Sforza, Iacopo Antiquari, Innocent VIII, Francisco Piccolomini, Battista Guarini, and Marco Lucido Fazini. The manuscript section also includes 2 orations by Poliziano. The second published work, issued by Johann Schott in Strasbourg in 1510, presents letters of the 4th-century Roman statesman Symmachus and the supposed correspondence of Mehmed II, Sultan of the Turks, written by the humanist Laudinus, also known as Laudivio de Vezzano, a popular work first published in 1473. Early annotations in 1 or 2 hands in red ink appear throughout volume except in the letters of Symmachus, dated 1511 at the end of the manuscript letters and 1512 at the end of the second published work. Many of the annotations are literary in nature, highlighting references to classical authors or proverbs and adages in the text. Later annotations added in pencil and red pencil. Title supplied by cataloger. Foliation: Paper, ii + 208 + iii; [1-208]; contemporary foliation in pencil, lower right recto. Layout: Manuscript letters written in 27-33 long lines and frame-ruled in red ink. Script: Manuscript letters written in a Gothic cursive script. Decoration: Underlining in red ink; initials touched with red ink; rubrication in red ink in manuscript letters; annotation in red ink except in Symmachus, including numerous manicules in manuscript letters; 2 later, more elaborate manicules (f. 44v, 77r). Binding: Contemporary stamped pigskin over wooden boards with a clasp; Politianus Sym[m]achus written on spine in ink in early hand. Origin: Manuscript letters copied ca. 1511 (f. 125v); annotations on last work dated 1512 (f. 208v); and first work annotated in or after 1514 (publication date).

These complement the printed items, which have similar concerns but also document the privileges granted to the Frisians by the Holy Roman Emperors. The writer of the 1910 inscription about C. Oldenhove (f. 464r) also added several pages of notes on Frisian history at the end of the volume in Latin, with citations from scholarly or official sources (f. 456r-463v).

Subjects range widely, from Academies to Ypres. The fifth volume is an index to the subject arrangement of the set with additional entries for personal names, places, and subjects underlined in the printed slips, resulting in an index half again as large as the subject index printed with the 1715 Compilation. The preliminary leaves of the 1715 Compilation are bound in at the beginning of Volume 1 (p. i-viii), together with a foldout letterpress royal genealogy (p. ix); the subject index of the 1715 Compilation is bound in at the end of Volume 5 (p. [291-334]). Manuscript bifolium laid into Volume 3 (between p. [1160]-1161) presents additional entries for the Prevosts des Marêchaux (Volume 3, p. 1157-1165).

17Title:  [Sermons]   
 Creator:   
 Notes:  Ms. codex. Manuscript sermons, interleaved with a printed Greek lectionary text. Title supplied by cataloger. Spine title: Evangelia et Epistolae. Foliation: iii (modern paper) + i (earlier parchment) + 189 + i (earlier parchment) + iv (modern paper); [1-189]; modern foliation in pencil, lower right recto. The printed text is paginated 1-158, [2]. Script: Written in various cursive scripts, with many of the sermons appearing to be in the same hand and the notes appearing to be in several other hands. Binding: 19th-century[?] vellum, splitting at upper hinge. Front and back endleaves include a reused parchment leaf from an earlier Latin text. Origin: No date or place given for the sermons. The printed text was produced in Antwerp in 1564 (f. 5r). Interleaved with a printed lectionary text in Greek with Latin headings. In general, each printed leaf is separated from the next by at least one or two manuscript leaves. The manuscript leaves are the same height as the printed leaves, but often of slightly greater width. The manuscript text is generally written out to the edges of the leaf, leaving no margins and no gutter. Thus on many leaves the wearing of the edges has obscured portions of the text. The printed Greek lectionary text has a separate record. To obtain it, do a keyword search for the phrase Ms. Codex 216.
