Excerpt from The Western Manuscripts in the Library of Trinity College, Cambridge, Vol. 1: A Descriptive Catalogue

He gave some 150 MSS. In Strype's Life of him (iii.410 sqq.) is another list of his MSS., furnished to Strype by John Knight. A very large proportion of these books come from Christ Church, Canterbury, a few from St Augustine's, Canterbury, and a good many from Buildwas Abbey in Shropshire.

The second is Thomas Nevile, Dean of Canterbury, Master of the College from 1593 to 1615, to the very great advantage of it. The MSS. given by him number 126. Of those whose provenance can be determined, the larger number are from Christ Church, Canterbury.

The third is George Willmer, sometime Fellow-Commoner, who died in 1626.

He gave 39 MSS. A fair proportion of these also are Canterbury books.

Sir Edward Stanhope appears as the donor of 15 MSS.: and there is another list in the Memoriale of "Manuscripti ad Collegium pertinentes," 24 in number, of which by far the greater part are from the Abbey of Wardon, or de Sartis, in Bedfordshire, where the College had property. I have not been able to ascertain the date at which these books came into the Library.

The names and benefactions of more recent donors, and of those who gave only a few volumes, as Jonathan Dryden, Edward and Thomas Rud, Silvius Elwis, Richard Bentley, and Samuel Sandars, appear in one of the lists which follow this Preface.

The gifts of Sir Henry Puckering, being all placed in class R, will be more fitly discussed in the second volume of this catalogue.

The first printed Catalogue of the MSS. belonging to Trinity College is to be found in Thomas Jamess Ecloga Oxonio-Cantabrigiensis in 1600 (p. 138).
