Fragments of a manuscript containing rare translations of Old French courtly love poems into Old Norse prose were discovered as linings in a bishop’s mitre, and just as remarkably about three-quarters of the original manuscript miraculously survives in the University Library in Uppsala. Our link is to a blog post from two years ago by Erik Kwakkel, but the fragments were also featured with new photographs in Manuscripts from the Arnamagnaean Collection (2015), a recent arrival in Green Library.

The Stanford University Press, a division of the Libraries, has issued its Fall 2015 catalog. Alongside various academic imprints and series, the recently launched Redwood Press publishes intellectually stimulating books written for a trade audience, spanning a variety of topics in an array of diverse voices and styles. Issuing its first catalog in 1926, the Press has a long and proud history of publication with recent emphases on the humanities and social sciences.
