Notes

University of Manchester Library (olim John Rylands Library) Cod. Arm. 20 (R55629).

Four Gospels, over 300 fols. copied and beautifully painted by Hakob of Djulfa, anno 1587.

Kiwrtean's catalogue (see Bibliography) not on WorldCat and not easily available outside University of Manchester Library (olim John Rylands Library). For brief overview of collection and details for Codd. 3 [our MAN.1.2], 10 and 20, see Agémian in Bibliography. (She lists our microfilm holdings as "D.O. 50.92", a numeration we are unaware of but probably referring to Prof. Ševčenko's old codes.)

For greater detail, see Nersessian in Bibliography (ISBN 0712349057; 1300+ pages; still forthcoming as of this writing; includes Manchester, whereas his Armenian Illuminated Gospel Books covers only the British Library, and his Catalogue of Early Armenian Books only the British Library and Bodley.)

See our link to the British Library for high-quality, enlargeable image of John Rylands Cod. Arm. 20, fol. 9 (illustration of the creation of Eve).
