Orth (Myra Dickman) research papers
Series II. Publications and research, 1970-2003 27.2 Linear Feet (65 boxes)
Subseries II.C. Topical research files, 1959-2002 11.3 Linear Feet (27 boxes)
As a leading specialist of illuminated manuscripts and books printed during the reigns of Francis I and Henry II of France, Orth gathered extensive research on these topics. The subseries reveals, however, the full range of Orth's research interests, including royal patronage, women writers and patrons, libraries, humanism, and the Evangelical reform.
