Brussels, Belgium: Centre d'études des Manuscrits, 1946-1999. CAVE. Hardbound. Variously bound in red, blue library buckram with a few loose issues. VG generally. Item #103790
An incomplete but substantial run of this periodical, 1946-1999, requiring 9 feet of shelf space. Includes Vols. 1-16 and 21-54, and within that range missing just Vols. 22, 40, 43 pt 2, and 54 pt 1. Includes indexes for Vols. 41, 45, 46. A large collection of a scarce reference work. Scriptorium is a "multilingual publication essentially dealing with codicology (i.e. material description of any aspect of manuscripts: supporting material, page-setting, binding, paleography, miniatures...), informing on cultural environment and offering a bibliography regarding mediaeval manuscripts through Western, Central and Eastern Europe." This run provides 50 out of its first 54 years. Not bad.
