1634 inventory

From History of Canterbury Cathedral Library
Jump to: navigation, search

An inventory of the Cathedral's movable objects was made under the supervision of Canon Meric Casaubon on the occasion of Archbishop Laud's Visitation in 1634. The inventory of the Library (Catalogus librorum qui sunt in Bibliotheca Ecclesiae Cantuariensis) recorded 31 printed books and 27 manuscripts. The Cathedral Archives document reference is CCA-DCc-LA/1/2.

Two other versions of this list survive in the complete inventory documents (CCA DCc/Inventories/9A and 9B). Version A is transcribed by J.W. Legg, in: J. Wickham Legg and W.H. St. John Hope, Inventories of Christchurch Canterbury (Westminster: Constable, 1902), 263-5. These two versions show slight differences from the list transcribed here.

For the printed books, an indication is given as to whether they are also found in the 1638 inventory and the 1649/50 list and the shelfmark of the probable copy in the Library today.

Almost all of the books which were in the Library in 1634 had been given in the previous six years.
