What are facsimiles?

Manuscript facsimiles (sometimes spelled facsimilies) are reproductions that attempt to convey the written forms and physical condition of a particular manuscript. They range from works that include black and white photographs of selected passages to highly faithful renderings of the complete object including the binding, illuminations, marginalia, and flaws.

Linked here are selected facsimiles of high quality. Use the links at the left to find further examples.
