Chapter Summary

Scholars working on the navicula have concentrated on just two manuscripts: Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS Bodley 68 and, to a lesser extent, Cambridge, Trinity College, MS O.5.26. The sixteen manuscripts under consideration are grouped to the type of construction used for the instrument. These group include group A, group B, group C, group D and group E. Nine of the sixteen manuscripts contain texts are related to those edited by Gunther and Price, called as 'group A'. Three further manuscripts describe a different way of constructing the navicula-these are copies of a previously unknown work, and are referred as 'group B. The final three manuscripts are all unique copies of previously unknown texts on making and using the navicula, and are given as groups C, D and E.
