The Llangattock breviary, manuscript, between 1441 and 1448.

MS Typ 301

Houghton Library, Harvard University

The Llangattock breviary was broken up into individual leaves by a bookseller in the late 1950s (and, as here, some individual leaves suffered further losses). A project is underway to virtually reunite the manuscript by digitizing the leaves, now scattered throughout the US.
