Biographical Note

Philip Bliss, Oxford antiquary, was one of the first collectors to recognize the historical and cultural importance of the medieval manuscript fragments. Most of the fragments came from the best known books of the Middle Ages; they survived intact in England until ca. 1520-70 at which time, particularly in Oxford and Cambridge, they were taken to pieces for use by binders as pastedowns, wrappers, fly leaves, and reinforcing strips.

From the guide to the Medieval manuscript fragments, ca. 850-1499, (Stanford University. Libraries. Dept. of Special Collections and University Archives.)
