A Student's Guide to the Manuscripts Relating to English History in the Seventeenth Century in the Bodleian Library (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Student's Guide to the Manuscripts Relating to English History in the Seventeenth Century in the Bodleian Library Before attempting to describe the seventeenth century mss. In the Bodlelan Library, Oxford, it is necessary to enumerate the existing catalogues. In the first place there is the series known as the Summary Catalogue of Western Manuscripts, edited by Mr. F. Madan, and, for the most recent volume, Dr. H. H. E. Craster. This gives, in order of acquisition, a short description of each ms. Unless it has been previously described in one of the 4to catalogues (the relevant volumes of which are mentioned below under the headings Ashmole, Rawlinson, and Tanner). The great defect of the Summary Catalogue, from the point of view. Of a student outside Oxford, is the absence of a printed index. This is in course of preparation: meanwhile a full slip-index is available in the Library. The 4to catalogues give details of the contents of each volume, indicate which portions were printed at the time of their compilation, * and have full indexes. Dr. Craster and others have attempted to keep this record up to date by entries in the annotated library copies of these catalogues, and students should consult these annotations before assuming that a document has not been printed.
