Note:Amongst the many additions over the years to the Bodleian's holdings of English medieval manuscripts, perhaps the most famous are the illuminated manuscripts bequeathed by Francis Douce (1757-1834), which include masterpieces such as the early Gothic Douce Apocalypse (MS. Douce 180). Bodley Ms Douce 180 contains two main sections: a version of the Apocalypse in Old French, with commentary and very limited ornamentation, and the lavishly illuminated Latin text of the Apocalypse
