About the collection

The shelfmark MSS. Eng. was adopted for miscellaneous English-language manuscripts acquired from 1887 onwards, as part of the classification-system introduced by Bodley's Librarian, E. W. B. Nicholson (see R. W. Hunt in Summary Catalogue, vol. I pp. xlvxlvi). The manuscripts are subdivided by subject: (bibles, history, language, liturgies, poetry, theology and miscellaneous) and then further by size, from 'a' (largest, 20" and over) to 'g' (smallest, 5" and under).
