Deposited Manuscripts



Deposited Manuscripts

The manuscripts in this category are not owned by the Bodleian, but are deposited by their owners in the Library, where they are available for consultation. In certain cases special conditions apply to their use or reproduction. The same shelfmark 'Dep.' is used both for printed and manuscript items: there is no shelfmark 'MS. Dep.'. The lower case letters a to g in the shelfmark refer to the size of the manuscript.
