Scattered Leaves: the Otto Ege Medieval Manuscript Collection

...is a digital exhibit showcasing the Ege Manuscript collection.

In the early decades of the 20th century, a Cleveland book collector named Otto Ege (pronounced egg-ee) removed the pages from 50 medieval manuscript books, divided the pages among 40 boxes, and sold the boxes around the world. Most of the boxes now reside in university and public library collections in the United States and Canada.

This exhibit contains digitized images of the Ege manuscript portfolios that are in the collection of the University Archives and Special Collection, University of Saskatchewan.

It was created in conjunction with a physical exhibit that was on display in 2005 as a part of a symposium on the Ege Manuscripts.
