The physical arrangement of the volumes reflects the nature of a library. Throughout the various life stages of the Biblioteca di San Marco, astronomical manuscripts were placed on plutei and on shelves, according to an established order and to groupings by subject matter. Thus, our object of study will be the ancient (and the current) structure of the shelfmarks of the ‘Marciani’ manuscripts of astronomical content.
