I have published more than a dozen specially commissioned codicological descriptions of medieval manuscripts online via the Roman de la Rose Digital Library and e-codices: Virtual Manuscript Library of Switzerland. Each description is based on in-person consultation of the book and research on its origins and provenance. Included in this list are books from the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, the Bibliothèque nationale de France, the Bodleian Library, the Fondation Martin Bodmer, the J. Paul Getty Museum, Lausanne Bibliothèque Cantonale et Universitaire, the Morgan Library, the University of Pennsylvania, the Walters Art Museum, and several private collections.
