Schoyen Collection: Checklist of 222 Manuscripts Spanning 5000 Years

The National Library of Norway, Oslo Division brings users this selection from the Schoyen Collection. The Website showcases only a very small percentage of the collection (which is the largest private collection amassed in the 20th century); nonetheless, the 222 manuscripts featured here span an amazing range of time periods, countries, and subjects. The site's introduction does a good job of explaining the collection's emphases, and the online offerings are browseable via broad categories (Paleography, Literature, Bible, etc.). For each item on-site, users can read a detailed catalog description, including binding, provenance, context, commentary, and exhibit history. A thumbnail JPEG of a manuscript page is expandable with a click.
