Digitised material for Durham Cathedral Library MS. A.III.35 - Tabula to glossed Bible
Digitised January 2018 as part of the Durham Priory Library Recreated project. The volume is tightly bound and many pages throughout have marginalia not visible in the image because they are too far into the gutter. This is particularly a problem at the beginning of the manuscript. The parchment throughout the volume cannot be made to lie flat and the undulation of it has caused more than usual distortion in the images. The text is clear on all images but, in certain areas, letter shapes and sharpness in some images have been affected.
