abstract

The present study traces the documented history of cataloguing the manuscript fonds of Venice’s Biblioteca Marciana, and in particular the Latin and Romance manuscript fonds, drawing from official sources (such as Anton Maria Zanetti’s published catalogues [1740‑41] and the Appendice a Zanetti), from published and unpublished pre-Zanetti sources, and from published and, most importantly, unpublished post-Zanetti sources. A particular inventory of early Marciana manuscripts not described in the Zanetti catalogues is brought to light and compared with entries in the later Appendice a Zanetti. Additional findings on cataloguing the French corpus are revealed.
