York, Minster Library, Additional 1

Present Location: 
Medieval Provenance: 
Binding Description: 

The book probably lost its medieval silver-gilt cover about 1547 at the time of the royal injunction for episcopal inventories and subsequent confiscations. It was presumably rebound more simply at the time. Rebound in 1678 in reversed calf over paste-boards with no lettering on the spine. As a note on fol. ir recto reveals, the 1678 covers are preserved as York, Minster Library, MS Add. 1A. Rebound again by K. Phillips of the British Museum in full dark brown undecorated morocco, on spine in gold capitals 'THE | YORK | GOSPELS'. Kept in a box now. The shelfmark appears on the inner front cover.
