Worth a Thousand Words
Although it may not be the favorite truth of us words-people, sometimes there’s a lot less to be said and a lot more to be seen.
That’s true of the two newly acquired manuscripts at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, the words of which, themselves, have been made pictures.
A “student Bible” — created in 1250 in Oxford, not in Paris as was more common — cost the UBC Library CA$179,000 (US$135,000) includes a handwritten concordance and margin notes.
