    There was a great diversity among them in terms of changes in style and a willingness to deviate from prior exemplars, however, as observed in this copy of Jerome 's Epistolae Morale, compared to this copy of Cicero 's Letters, both dating from the 16th century. Wealthy people began to build up personal libraries; Philip the Bold probably had the largest personal library of his time in the midth century, is estimated to have had about illuminated manuscripts, whilst a number of his friends and relations had several dozen.

Additionally, university regulations forbade parchmenters from hiding the good parchment from university members wanting to buy.

    They had little room, or patience Manuscripts and their Makers book that matter, to disseminate the imaginary plants and fanciful texts that are so commonly imagined in the minds of those who think of this era. Universality and uniformity, medievalists believe, was seen among some late manuscripts, along with other changes typically associated with the printed book. Oswald rejected a system in which one must simply pick a single exemplar and correct according to it, or reproduce portions of texts which the scribe knew to be in error due to a proper exemplar not being attainable. The subject matter of these studies ranges chronologically from late antiquity to the later Middle Ages, adding the emergent medievalism of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. However, the varying quality of materials did not affect the quality of the text contained on it, as the transition was made from parchment to rag paper.

    Its wide range in time and space reflects the lifetime of manuscript research, teaching, and collecting by its honorees, Richard and Mary Rouse. Fortunately, images of more and more of these manuscripts can be viewed via the Web, though it has to be admitted that looking at the artefact can be a very different experience from looking at images on the Web. The publication is no longer available. The emphasis was on speed of acquisition instead of the quality of the product.
