Provenance Studies

This article contains information about Provenance Studies. While typically Provenance Studies is mentioned in relation to geological studies, I am interested in Historical Provenance Studies. As far as I’m aware, there is no discipline yet that has this name in the historical arenas.

M. R. James (1899) reports that he was “anxious to set the example” in studying the provenance for a complete collection of manuscripts. The only other attempt which he recognized that aimed in the same direction was made by Rev. W. D. Macray in Annals of the Bodleian Library. James then indirectly says that “every one of the older collections of manuscripts in England” have not yet had the provenances of the MSS in their collections investigated.

Who is J. Nasmyth? 1777.
