Edward Rowe Mores (1731-78) was an antiquary. Details are given in the Dictionary of National Biography.
Manuscripts collected by Edward Rowe Mores, relating to the Queen's College, Oxford.
After Mores's death in 1778 the manuscripts came into the hands of Thomas Astle (d. 1803) who gave them to Dr. John Price, Bodley's Librarian, in whose possession they were in 1790.Immediate Source of Acquisition
As they appear in the Gough Catalogue published in 1814 as in the Gough collection, it seems that Dr Price handed over the volumes to the Bodleian before his death in 1813, probably in 1809 when the Gough books themselves came.Access Conditions
Entry to read in the Library is permitted only on presentation of a valid reader's card (for admissions procedures see http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/services/admissions/).
