Cool!  Another one to add to the list of Atlantian-area exhibits of 
medieval schtuff at http://moas.atlantia.sca.org/museums.htm

The Brummer Collection has a website 
(http://www.duke.edu/web/duma/collections/brummer/) ... and 
Duke University also has a Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special 
Collections Library (http://scriptorium.lib.duke.edu/) with a Papyrus 
Archive, an Italian Literature collection, and something called the 
Guido Mazzoni Pamphlet Collection, which has some Renaissance-
period stuff.
