MS 211 is a collection of approx. 55 manuscript fragments, mainly rescued from bindings in which they were used as waste. They were collected by Laing over the course of many years. There are 35 main fragments, and 17 more in MS 211/XXXVI (these were deemed too small to be catalogued by Catherine Borland).
Each of them is described separately. See individual catalogue entries for more details.
Language of Materials
Mostly Latin, with some French, Anglo-Norman, Italian, and Old Norwegian.
Conditions Governing Access
The collection is open to all. The manuscripts can be consulted in the Centre for Research Collections, Edinburgh University Main Library.
