Statutes of the Guild of Butchers, Wormditt, Prussia [CUL 4600 Bd. Ms. 230—MN to check]

Shaw and music

Note: Cover title: George Bernard Shaw as musician, original compositions, 1885. A loose note from Bernard Burgunder says this title is outrageous because he has copied Wagner, and puts the date in the early 1880s.

New discovered poems of Ossian

Note: Poems written by Baron Edmund von Harold in imitation of Ossian. Harold admits his authorship in the preface, which is dated 1784. An inscription on the flyleaf reads: "This copy of Ossian was made for James Wadmore ... by one of his clerks about the year 1811."

Illegible title

 

Bancroft BANC MSS 89/62 z Box 37 Folder 47 (John Clifford Mortimer papers)

 

Item is typical Mortimer, written in black ink, edited in red ink (all in his hand); with a title in red ink, utterly illegible by processing Archivist (myself, AEB), public services staff and Mortimer's secretary. 

 

Supplied title:

Q: This is a single item appearing in a F.A. currently with square brackets around it, which I think universally says that it is supplied, but would it be better suited to add a note that says illegible title. That way it differentiates it from something where there was no title and it was supplied? (AEB) That sounds like a good idea to me--MN
