The shelfmark MS. Lat. was adopted for miscellaneous Latin-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. xlv–xlvi). The manuscripts are subdivided by subject: (MSS. Lat. bib., Lat. class., Lat. hist., Lat. liturg., Lat. misc., and Lat. th.) and then further by size, from 'a' (largest, 20" and over) to 'g' (smallest, 5" and under).
