Watermarks in Romance-language manuscripts from the Berlin Collection at the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow – Part 2 Watermarks that we reproduce on the following pages come from Romancelanguage manuscripts from the Berlin collection presently held at the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow. This collection is not an archive. The cases in which we can precisely determine the date and the place of a manuscript’s execution, thus also about the paper on which the manuscript is made, are not numerous. Among the oldest paper manuscripts, there are a dozen or so in which the watermarks are identical to the reproductions available in the Briquet and Piccard repertories. We were also able to find some of the later watermarks in other repertories. We do not reproduce here those watermarks that already have been identified and dated in other collections. As we lack comparative tools, especially when it comes to the papers dated after the sixteenth century, we decided to progressively publish in Fibula examples of various watermarks that we were able to date. We have started with Italian manuscripts (Fibula 3), now we continue with French ones. There is a connection between two parts (Italian and French) in the manuscript gall. fol. 145, written in French but in Italy, mostly on Italian papers. The reproductions will be listed according to their catalogue number and according to their format: in folio, in quarto, in octavo. To make searching easier, an index of motifs appearing in the watermarks will be provided, with references to the relevant catalogue numbers.
