Music Faculty - DIAMM Publications
DIAMM Publications Online Shop
DIAMM Publications is an extension of a research project – the ‘Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music’. This project provides a leading resource for the study of medieval manuscripts through its website www.diamm.ac.uk
A selection of the manuscripts that have been digitally captured have been transformed into facsimile publications of the highest quality by the Faculty of Music. These are new scholarly editions with extensive introductions and commentaries by leading musicologists.
To date six facsimiles have been published – all available for sale below- and there are plans to publish new facsimiles at a rate of around one per year.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WITH CURRENT WORKING RESTRICTIONS SHIPPING IS SLOWER THAN USUAL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
We regret that we have had to reintroduce some shipping costs outside the UK as courier charges have increased by 350% due to worldwide shipping issues.
Issues with Customs: several parcels have been returned to us because of delayed customs notifications/payments. When placing an order please include a MOBILE phone number fi you have one as this seems to be more reliable than landlines.
Shipping to the USA and Australia is currently very slow. The last shipment to Australia took 22 days, so please allow around three weeks before contacting us. Tracking is unreliable beyond the UK border as the courier marks the item as 'delivered' when they hand over to the shipping agent at the airport. Tracking then seems to be unavailable until the parcel magically shows up at the destination. We have tried various couriers, but the delay is still considerable. We have not been able to find a faster way to ship for urgent orders.
Please note: our books require a signature on delivery, so will not be left outside your door if you are out. We would suggest shipping to a work address if you are unlikely to be home during office hours.
Please do not attempt to ship to a PO box address: the couriers will not deliver to them.
Postage and packing will be calculated during the checkout process. The charges range from £6.00 to £45 depending on the weight of the book and the shipping address. Please note that these charges are usually considerably less than the actual shipping cost to us, particularly when books are going outside the UK.
It no longer possible to arrange to collect copies in person from Oxford as we do not have any more copies here (sorry).
DIAMM facsimiles are also stocked by OMI - Old Manuscripts and Incunabula (New York).
