This is a leaf from MS.33, a 15th century Gradual received by the Library as part of the David Laing bequest in 1878.  We have recently been awarded a substantial grant from the National Manuscripts Conservation Trust to preserve the Laing manuscript books, which are among our greatest treasures.  Happy Christmas to all our blog readers and we look forward to sharing more tales from the collections in 2014.
