Description:
MS 119 is predominantly a collection of letters. Most of the letters are either written to or by European Reformation leaders but a few are entirely English such as the autograph letter of Edward VI to Catherine Parr and the autograph letter of Anne Boleyn to her father, Sir Thomas Boleyn. The volume also contains a few additional brief pieces such as a copy of Martin Bucer's will, a copy of the Articles of unanimity in faith signed at Karlstadt, 1539 and also an English version of Thomas Gray's Preface to the Scala Chronica (original in CCCC MS 133).
