I started in Cambrai, where I had a wonderfully comfortable bed in a hotel that had seen better days but still had its dignity (unlike the unfortunate Pension Arenberg in Vienna). I took this picture from my position in the breakfast room while I was waiting for my coffee:

Then I walked to the library:

I was greeted by a friendly archivist and given full run of the manuscript - want to take digital images of the whole thing? Sure! I spent the morning doing the description, ran out for lunch, and came back in the afternoon and took 238 pictures - one for each folio. I had to shoot one-handed because the library didn't have anything for propping books open, and I was feeling the burn by the end.

Lots of cool stuff! CLICKY )
