Just recently, I discovered a missing leaf from l1663—a Gospel lectionary codex housed in Chicago. This leaf, which is kept in the Rare Books and Special Collections of McGill University, has never been identified until now. There is an interesting question as to how it got separated from the larger codex in Chicago, but we know that there is at least one other separated folio in the private collection of E. Krentz. This particular item came into the McGill library during the 1930s, and many readers of this blog will be excited to know that it was purchased from Erik von Scherling. Thus, it is an item from von Scherling's private bulletin Rotulus, where it was no. 2035. There are many more (unpublished) precious gems from the McGill collection, some of which I am currently editing for publication. I am finishing up the edition of this codex leaf, but in the meantime I thought I would introduce it to the readers of this blog through a screen flow video. Enjoy!
UPDATE: The following image is a better example of the use of the suspended epsilon in both the new leaf and the Krentz leaf. Notice the near identical letter forms of the first three letters απε as well as the shape and placement of the breathing mark.
