This essay draws attention to two largely untapped resources for manuscript study. Perhaps primarily, it exposes the potential riches still unexamined in local record offices. We here chronicle but a single example, the Staffordshire Record Office, where we uncovered more than sixty folios of medieval materials from bindings (presented in a brief catalogue). But more broadly, we here argue the need for investigation of medieval materials now extant as fragments within bindings of all sorts.
