Marsh’s Library currently has a fascinating series of posts on its website. Scholars who have been visiting Fellows at Marsh’s over the last year share what they have been working on at the Dublin rare books library and disclose some of their findings in the archives. It’s a wonderful spotlight on one of Ireland’s most important scholarly resources and reveals the unique riches available there.
In a few posts over the coming weeks, we’ll share links to these glimpses of scholarly detective work in Irish archives.
This week, in our final link to this series of posts on the Marsh’s Library website, Gabor Gelleri takes us “On the trail of a mysterious Renaissance manuscript”. He explains its link to Marsh’s and leaves us on a cliffhanger, noting that the “[t]he ‘hunt’ for this important manuscript is still ongoing”.
