Otto Ege-MSS collection #7 hand characteristic of N. France & England of the period, early 13th c.

Petri Rigae 1140? - (Biblia Versificata) Petrus de Riga (d. 1209) Aurora. c.1300 England, lot half of 13th c. (late 12th c) p 123? Complete leaf in vellum from the verse Bible Traditionally known as the Aurora for the light it shed on obscure passages of scripture. Written in a single column of 48-49 lines, regular early gothic script, brown ink, ruled in plummet, 4 two line initials in alternating red & blue, calligraphic first letter to each line, long upright format measuring 239x110 mm] (195 x approx. 67mm). - 2nd ed. "Recapitulationes." The unused format of this leaf, twice as long as it is now, shows the English custom of folding the skins lengthwise. -may date from end of the 12th c; may therefore be from the earliest manuscripts of the Aurora. Petrus de Riga (canon of St. Denis, Paris) composed the work late in the 12th c. [illegible] the text through 3 revisions. The Aurora was one of the most popular Latin books of poetry of the late 12th & 13th c. It was further revised & enlarged between 1200 & 1208 by Aegidius of Paris. It became a popular compendium of Bible texts & gained a reputation through use as a university textbook. -Su Maggs Bulletin [insert] #13 - 27 [end insert] # 12 - 23 & Quaritch # 1036 - 125. -It is remarkable that several 12th c Latin epics were printed & reprinted, but that 2 of the poems most frequent in manuscripts were never considered worth publishing: the Anti-Claudianus of Alanus de Insulis & the Aurora of Petrus de Riga.

The composition of the whole text of the Aurora must have covered a period of years. Perhaps 2 decades, between 1170 & 1200. Petri's longest ed. contained more than 15,000 lines. Between 1200, & even earlier, & 1208 Aegidius of Paris produced his 2 redactions of the Aurora. Actus Apostolorum, Iob, Cantica canticorum - books in riming hexameters - all other books were written in distiche. Recapitulationes is a lipogrammatic or "letter dropping" book.
