The collection reached its final form of arrangement by subject in 1921, but includes material accumulated or worked on, both earlier and later, by E.W.B. Nicholson, F. Madan, H.H.E. Craster and E. Lobel.
The facsimiles are from various sources: clippings from printed books, prospectuses and sale-catalogues, as well as original reproductions from manuscripts in the Bodleian, Oxford College Libraries, and in other institutional or private libraries. The collection includes facsimiles of Latin, English, Greek and French manuscripts.
