The Cuerden Psalter

The Cuerden Psalter now belongs to the Pierpoint Morgan Library in New York, where it has been since they purchased it in 1929, three years after the death of Reginald Arthur Tatton.

Images and information about the Psalter can be found by searching the catalogue on the Corsair Morgan website

The book long belonged with Lancashire families; Nowell (1536), Peter Brooke of Astley, Robert Townley Parker and  Reginald Tatton.  It is the very here and now of rural Lancashire communities that I am endeavouring to 'connect' with the vellum pages of the psalter.
