MSS. Douce:
manuscripts from the collection of Francis Douce (1757-1834)



Note. As an experiment, and until a more sophisticated system can be put in place, scanned page-images of the Summary Catalogue descriptions of the Douce manuscripts have been made available. File names consist of 'SC', the volume number 'IV', and the page number. If you do not know the page number of the description you require, you will have to use trial and error to find the appropriate image; the following may be used as a rough guide:

History of the collection

A brief history of the collection may be found in Summary Catalogue, IV, pp. 488-9, preceding the descriptions of manuscripts. Considerably more detail may be found in the exhibition catalogue cited under Further Reading.
