Talking of digital, do you know what a manicula is?

I recognised it as soon as I saw it!  But as a musicologist, no-one ever told me what these little scribbles actually were.  St Andrews' Rare Books department explains all, in their latest Echoes from the Vault blogpost.  Most informative!

If you think you might ever, ever, remotely want to examine a mediaeval manuscript or book ... well, you never know.
