MSS. e Musaeo



Introduction

In 1655 Thomas Barlow (Bodley's Librarian, 1652-1660) formed the class in Musaeo, that is manuscripts kept in a cupboard in the Librarian's study. In this class were mainly placed miscellaneous donations and purchases of the period c. 1647-1683. In 1728 the manuscripts were moved and renumbered, and the name of the collection changed to e Musaeo.
