Willmott partbook joins its partner in the Bodleian Library

Posted: Feb. 3, 2022 by Julia Craig-McFeely

The Willmott partbook, formerly in private hands, has been acquired by the Bodleian Library and is now shelved as MS. Mus. c. 784. It is now under the same roof as the only other surviving book from the set, known as the 'Braikenridge' partbook (MS. Tenbury 1486) for the first time in several centuries. This also means that all of the partbooks associated with the Norwich grocer John Sadler are now accessible in the same place, possibly for the first time since they were copied.
