Henry Spelman. Concilia, Decreta, Constitutiones in re ecclesiarum orbis Britannici.
London, 1639.
Extensive annotations in the hand of William Somner, confirmed in a note (by E. S.) pasted on the front pastedown and in the handlist compiled by C.E. Woodruff.
Label pasted on front pastedown with an inscription recording William Somner's presentation of a copy of the Antiquities to the city of Canterbury at a meeting of the Burgmote in 1640, with a reference to the Burgmote minutes.
The copy listed in the 1649 inventory (CCA-DCc-LA/1/6) is probably the Dean and Chapter's copy of the first volume acquired on publication in 1639, since discarded in favour of Somner's copy of the complete work.
