Ege, Otto F. (Fragmentator)

A reconstruction of a Book of Hours dismantled in part by Otto Ege (Cleveland, OH) in the 1940s and used as no. 30 in his "Fifty Original Leaves of Medieval Manuscripts" portfolios. The leaf currently preserved at the Rochester Institute of Technology is a palimpsest; the lower text is a late fourteenth-century French document (https://phys.org/news/2020-11-students-hidden-15th-century-text-medieval.html). The individual leaves were catalogued in the fall of 2017 by students in Lisa Fagin Davis' course at the Simmons School of Library and Information Science (Boston, MA), "The Medieval Manuscript from Charlemagne to Gutenberg."
