'Missing' Renaissance manuscript acquired for Rylands

The John Rylands University Library has acquired the 'missing' seventh volume of a celebrated Renaissance manuscript. The volume is part of the famous Colonna Missal, a magnificent service-book made for use in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. It now joins the six other volumes that have been housed at the John Rylands Library since 1901.
