David T. Gura's innovative catalogue describes the 288 medieval and Renaissance manuscripts held by the University of Notre Dame (Hesburgh Library and Snite Museum of Art) and Saint Mary's College. Bound manuscripts, leaves, and fragments, which span the late eleventh through the sixteenth century and include bibles, books of hours, calendars, liturgical texts, and much more, are given thorough critical treatment and scholarly description. Organized by repository, each manuscript description is based on Gura's intensive paleographical and codicological analyses, which address features such as material and support, collation, illumination, layout, script types, ownership history, book bindings, and bibliographical references. Scaled diagrams of distinct and variant ruling patterns and border arrangements are included with each catalogue entry to facilitate comparison with each other and with manuscripts outside the collection. Gura's flexible schematic for analytical manuscript description presents the important aspects of particular genres of the manuscripts, distinguishes their uncommon features, and interprets them.

In his introduction to the catalogue, Gura provides a history of the formation of the manuscript collections, a scholarly overview organized by genre, and a detailed explanation of his analytical schematic. Paratextual materials allow readers to browse all manuscripts in the collections by repository, date, country or region of origin, language, and textual contents. Academic librarians, manuscript dealers and collectors, and the community of scholars, curators, and librarians who work with medieval and Renaissance manuscripts will find this an accessible and valuable resource.

"David T. Gura's fastidious and comprehensive treatment of the manuscripts he catalogues ranks among the very best scholarship I have ever encountered. Both the originality and exceptional detail of this catalogue convey its potential to be a model for similar cataloguing endeavors in the future. This is no mere 'catalogue,' in other words; on the contrary, it represents the future of manuscript taxonomy, a departure from anything I know of for any American collection of manuscripts." -Scott James Gwara, University of South Carolina


Representation Theory Of Finite Groups : Proceedings Of A Special Research Quarter At The Ohio State University, Spring 1995

RRP $448.99

Contains articles by many of the participants at the conference on modular representation theory of finite groups, which took place under the auspices of the Mathematical Research Institute of the Ohio State University with additional support from the National Science Foundation. The book is addressed to specialists and students in the field of group representation theory, including both the general theory and the special theories related to the representations of the symmetric groups and the finite groups of Lie type. Latest reports are given on important conjectures including the Lusztig conjecture, the Alperin-McKay-Dade conjectures and the k(GV) problem. Important new research avenues are illuminated, including the theory of infinite-dimensional modules for finite groups and the theory of Rickard equivalences of module categories.
