The Free Library Case Study focuses on manuscript cuttings and fragments from the John Frederick Lewis Collection at the Free Library of Philadelphia. The Free Library’s collection of approximately 2,300 fragments, principally of European origin and dating from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries, is one of the largest of its kind and remains relatively understudied.
