THE collection of books in Leicester which is commonly known there as the 
Old Town Hall Library is housed, as it has been housed ever since about 
the year 1633, '" 'l^e upper story of that part of the Old Town Hall 
which faces the west end of St. Martin's Church. A bronze tablet affixed to the 
outer wall bears the following inscription : — 

'This is the Town Library of Leicester, erected about the year 1632, at the 
instance of Mr, John Angell, Public Lecturer.' 

On the north side of the whole group of buildings, over the passage which leads 
to the little quadrangle, another bronze tablet is affixed, with the inscription : — 

' This building known as the Town Hall occupies the site of a building called 
" Corpus Christi Guild " and parts of the original fabric remain. It has been used 
for municipal purposes since the reign of H. VIL' 

These tablets were placed in their respective positions somewhere about the 
year 1879. They represent the current tradition as to a group of buildings of more 
than common interest. They give the impression, to those who read them to-day, 
that, in the main, the buildings as a whole took the place of older buildings, once 
the property of Corpus Christi Guild, and that, in particular, the part used as 
a Library was erected at the date given. 

When, however, the buildings themselves are allowed to tell their own story, 
and the accounts of the Corporation are searched to see if they throw any light 
on the matter, it is soon found that such an impression does not quite accord 
with the facts. 

To begin with the witness of the building itself. If we pass through the passage 
over which the second tablet is placed , into the quadrangle, the dwelling-house 
opposite is evidently of comparatively modern date and need not detain us. On the 
right hand we have the western side of the quadrangle — the beautiful panelled 
room, known as the Mayor's Parlour, on the ground floor, which has been recently 
described as ' a typical example of the manner in which the chief apartments of a fine 


house were adorned in the early part of the seventeenth century '. On viewing this 
room and that above it we find, along with abundant evidence of the work of adorn- 
ment done at that time, traces of earlier work, not only in the glass which fills the 
vi'indows and contains many times repeated the cognizance of the Guild, but in some 
of the stonework, especially in the upper story. The general impression left, how- 
ever, is that, whatever may have been preserved, the work of the seventeenth century 
practically amounted, in this part of the building, to a fairly thorough renovation. 

But when we pass from the Mayor's Parlour into the Great Hall, once the place 
where Assizes were held, and still bearing signs of such use, the main features of the 
fabric tell a different story. The substantial part, the walls and the roof, belong to 
the middle of the fifteenth century. The panelling at the back of the dais is of about 
the same date as the Mayor's Parlour. The rail in front of the gallery at the East 
end — from which gallery a persistent, if rather unsubstantial, tradition says that 
Queen Elizabeth watched the performance of one of Shakespere's plays — belongs in 
character to about the year 1720, and the same date may be assigned to the gallery 
overlooking the dais in front of what was used as the Grand Jury room. 

A staircase leads from the quadrangle to the upper story of the eastern part. We 
pass through a room now used by the Leicestershire Architectural and Archaeological 
Society into the Library, which is divided from this room by a modern wooden 
partition. Here the general characteristics are the same as in the western portion. 
The panelling of both rooms is of about the same date (1637) as that which is in 
embossed letters on the carved fire-place in the Mayor's Parlour; the beams were 
cased about the middle of the same century. Yet everything inside and out points 
not so much to 'erection' or even 'rebuilding' as to 'adornment' and 'improve- 

The general indications of such a survey are, that substantially what is known 
as the Old Town Hall is the older home of the Guild of Corpus Christi, ' restored ', 
as we shouid say in our day, but not rebuilt, the signs and results of ' restoration ' 
being more marked and prominent in some parts than in others. 

The Records of the Borough, especially the Chamberlains' Accounts, which are 
very clear and well kept, tend to confirm the story told by the building itself. 

We find from a study of them, first, that while the Hall of the Guild of Corpus 
Christi was used, from time to time, by the Corporation even in the fourteenth 
century, it was not purchased until some time during the reign of Queen Elizabeth. 
One of the conditions of purchase was the continuance of a yearly payment of 7j. 90'. 



This was continued year by year, and is entered almost invariably as ' for Corpus 
Christi Hall alias the Town yall', at least until the year 1775. 

Next, and chiefly, the actual account of what was expended on the Library in 
1633 speaks for itself and may be given in full : —

The total is £io 15^-. j,d., or, perhaps, £60 according to present value — not 
enough for the erection of the building but enough for the necessary repairs and 
furniture, not forgetting the cost of removing the books from St. Martin's and the 
usual ' bread and beere ' on the occasion. 

The accounts for the work done in 1637 are too lengthy to be given here. 
The total amount expended was £224 14^. j,d., equivalent to more than £1,100 of 
our money, and it is expressly said that this covers ' the Charges of newe-building the 
parlor of the Towne Hall and of the Chamber over it and the buildings adjoining to 
it '. At first reading this might seem to show that it was after all a work of erection 
which was carried out, not in 1633 but a few years later. But apart from the fact, 
about which there can be no mistake, that the books were actually removed from 
St. Martin's to the Library at the earlier date, the costliness of the work known to 
have been carried out in the Mayor's Parlour only allows for improvements and 
adornments to the other parts of the whole group of buildings, and not for their 

On the whole it seems clear that, no doubt unintentionally, both the tablets are 
rather misleading, and that the old Hall of the Guild of Corpus Christi is still standing, 
though in several parts, and notably in the Mayor's Parlour, it bears witness to the 
liberal improvements, adaptations, and renovations carried out, especially in the earlier 
part of the seventeenth century, by the Corporation, whose property it had become 
some half-century earlier. Tradition says that the room adapted and adorned for 
use as the Library had previously been occupied by the priests who ministered at the 
Altar of the Guild in St. Martin's Church. 

In the list of ' Charges about the Librarie ', reprinted from the Borough Accounts 
in the year 1632, there is a payment ' for carrying the bookes out of the Chauncell 
into the Librarie'. The Chancel meant is that of St. Martin's Church. The 
accounts of that church, still preserved, as well as the Accounts and Hall Papers 
of the Borough, show by many entries that books known as ' the Library ' had been 
there for some years, first in the belfry and afterwards in the Chancel, and that the 
Borough authorities were in part, at least, responsible for the care of them. There are 
records during several years before 1632 of gifts of books, of the appointment of 
library keepers, of sums voted both for necessary repairs and furniture, and for the 
purchase of books, coincident in point of time with similar entries in the Church 

Who first suggested the plan of removing the books from the church and of 



preparing a room for them in Corpus Christi Hall cannot now be discovered. A board 
affixed to the partition between the room where the books now rest and the room 
occupied by the Archaeological Society ascribes its existence, rightly enough, to the 
Corporation, adding that what was done was ' upon the Motion of the Right Revd 
Father in God John Lord Bishop of Lincoln and by the Promotion of M' John 
Angell Publick Lecturer of this Borough '. 

It is, perhaps, somewhat hard to decide the relative value of ' upon the 
Motion ' and ' by the Promotion ', but there is ample proof that both Mr. Angell, 
resident in Leicester, and Bishop Williams, the Bishop of the diocese of which Leicester 
then formed a part, were zealous and active in bringing about the removal of the 
old Library and the preparation and furnishing of the new. 

A Latin inscription on one of the books states that it was presented to the Library 
by John Angell, who for some time had been ' moderator juventutis Leicestriae ', in 
other words. Master of the Free School there. In the year 1*626 Angell was one of 
the candidates for the office of Ptiblic Preacher, and was eventually elected. A 
recommendatory letter in his favour was presented to the Mayor and ' his brethren ' 
from ' the Ministers and Schoolemasters of the Town '. Among the signatures 
to this letter are those of Thomas Holmes, Francis Higginson, John Bonnett, 
John Ilyff, and Richard Richardson, names which are found written on volumes 
still preserved in the Library. Francis Higginson in particular has left sufficient 
notes in his own hand to show that he was both a lover of books and a generous 
donor. v 

At a meeting of ' Mr Maior and his brethren ' the v^^ day of September 
4. Chas. I. 1628 'it is agreed by a generall consent that M^ Angell shall have vl' 
forth of the Chamber of the Towne for his Chardges goinge to London for the 
obtayninge of the Bishop's licence for the weekely lecture and buying books for 
the library '. Apparently he did not vacate the office of schoolmaster by becoming 
Public Lecturer, but held both until 1634, when he was suspended through the action 
of Laud. He remained in Leicester until 1650, and was afterwards Public Preacher 
at Grantham, where he died in 1655. 

A charming letter from Anthony Cade, Vicar of Billesdon, also a very liberal 
donor to the Library, who was a friend of Bishop Williams and Chaplain to the 
Duke of Buckingham, gives an attractive picture both of the writer and also of Angell, 
on whose behalf it was written. The original, in a very beautiful^ hand, is preserved 
in the Hall Papers. Petitions had been sent from a large number of the citizens 


asking that Angell's salary as Master of the Free School might be increased by £io 
a year, and Anthony Cade writes in support of this same request. 

Right Worll. With my very respective salutations and profession of the love 
and reverence which I beare unto you and the whole Company of 3 '' Corporation, and 
the whole towne of Leicester : I crave leave thus to write unto you. I was desired 
the last yeare about this time by M' Maior and some others of the Company, to 
come to Leicester and vpon some triall to deliver my judgem* of M^ Angel then in 
y'^ deliberation to be made yi" Schoolmaster. I willingly came and happily found 
him very sufficient, and vpon delivery of my opinion of him, he was intertayned, 
and hath continued this yeare in the place with you. I have since the time of his 
placing bene inquisitive of his diligence, and satisfaction which hee gave. I have 
alwayes heard well of him in every regard, to his great comendation, my great 
contentmt, and the credit, honour, and flourishing of y'' schoole. Now I have 
heard lately, that for fayling of some promise to augm* his' entertaynm* Ten 
pounds by yeare (wherof hee was at the first assuredly psuaded) you are likely 
to lose him. But lett my love to you all, and to the Country about you, challenge 
mee this priviledge and bouldnes, to counsel you not to lose so tryed and worthy 
a man for such a matter. I hould a good schoolmaister one of the best Jewels, 
and most necessary men (next after the Guides of our Soules to heaven) which 
the Comon welth can have, to p[er]fit and polish with his hand the best Jewels which 
God geves us, our Children : w^ if they be not polished and p[er]fited in their due 
times, their times are unrecoverably lost, and their persons too, or at least, lose 
much of their luster. And therefore such Jewels (or Jewelers) cannot be bought 
to deare. I know also such good polishers of such rare Jewels (as we ought to 
account our children) are not very ordinary, but either they fail in skill, diligence, 
or conscience. In none of which (I hope) you can taxe this Angell. And we 
all know also, that the world is not as it hath bene : the prices of all things 
are raised, and so must in aequity bee the stipends and entertaynm' of men (as all 
things are w'' they must buy). Besides, it is not for the honour of such a 
Corporation, to have it sayd that you have lost such an approved worthy 
Instrum' of yi^ good for such a matter ; or that you are content with others farre 
worse (at least untryed) so you may have them cheaper, ffar be it from you. 
And for a conclusion, it may bee, some will repent if they geve so much : but 
I think veryly you will all repent if you do otherwise. If I bee too bould with 
you, I pray and beseech you let my love crave pardon for my bouldness. Thus 


in all humility, referring the whole consideration of this matter to your wisdomes ; 
I take leave and Comend you to God's gracious goodnes. 

Billesdon. April! 2. 1629 

Yr WorPa in all Christian 
love and dutey 

Anthony Cade 

May it please you 

(good Mr Maior) to call 

)our Company together 

and again to consider of 

this matter. (in dorse) To the Right Wor" 

Mr Willyam Billers 
Maior of the Burrough 
of Leicester and 
to the Company 
of the Corpo 
ration there 


After reading such an appeal in the Hall Papers it is pleasing to find imme- 
diately afterwards the record that as on August 7, 1629, the 'four and twentie', i.e. 
' M"" Maior and his companie ', having been duly called together, Mr. Angell was 
voted the addition to his ' entertaynm* ' of £ lo a year. 

The extracts from the Borough records which have been given are sufficient to 
suggest that in the Leicester of the earlier part of the seventeenth century there 
were a number of friends bound together, if not in all cases by unity of political and 
religious convictions, certainly by the love of learning and a care for books. 
Angell was one of them ; an earnest, thoughtful man with strong beliefs but interests 
wider than his beliefs. We can understand the encouragement and support he received 
from those of like tastes and interests in ' promoting ' a change which in those days 
might be expected to lead to the advancement of learning. 

If Leicester was fortunate in the man by whose ' promotion ' the new Library was 
formed, it was at least equally fortunate in the Bishop upon whose ' motion ' the Mayor 
and his brethren acted. The career and character of John Williams, Dean of West- 
minster, Bishop of Lincoln, Archbishop of York, and the last clergyman to hold the 
office of Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, are full of incident and interest. 


His action in regard to the matter of the chancel of St. Martin's Church is referred 
to in many historical works dealing with the period. 

For the present purpose it will be best to give the Bishop's own letter to the 
Mayor in full. It was not included by Mr. J. C. Jeaffreson in his report on the 
Leicester Borough Records for the Historical Manuscripts Commission, but was 
published from the State Papers by Mr. B. H. Beedham in his Notices of 
Archbishop Williams, printed for private distribution in i86g. The copy preserved 
in the Hall Papers differs from this in a number of unimportant details. Neither is 
a holograph but the Leicester copy is written in a very neat hand and has the 
Bishop's own signature. 

After my verye heartiest Commendacons and best wishes unto you. I thanke 
you right heartilye and all the Towne of Leicester for your great care and charge 
in providinge and adorninge soe convenient a place for the Librarye there and 
especiallye for your resolution upon the motion I made unto you to returne the old 
Roome unto that Religious use it was formerlye buylded and designed for wct is, to 
be the Chauncell or Quire of y'^ ffaire and Beautifull Churche. I praye you take yo'' 
owne time between this and All Sainctes to remoove the Bookes into the newe place 
provided for them and to trimme up and adorne the other Roome for your Chauncell 
both with faire doores to open into yo^ Churche and some steps or ascents at the 
upper end thereof for yo'^ Communion Table to stand in, att such tymes as it shall 
not bee used in the participation of those Sacred mysteries, ffor att those tymes the 
Lawe doth appointe it shalbe sett in the most convenient place either the Chauncell or 
Bodye of the Churche whereunto the people maye have best accesse and where the 
Minister that officiates maye be most audiblye' heard, ^v"^ as I am informed is the 
place where it stood before. Lett it therefor att such tymes be placed there again 
untill by complaint made of the Minister or Churchwardens of the inconveniency 
thereof I shall give order to the Contrarye. Onely both then and att all other tymes 
my earnest suite unto you is, that yo'' "Table maye be fairely covered and adorned 
wheresoever it stands, that whereas all men that are not extremelye malicious must 
needes commend yo"^ wise and discreete manadginge of yo'^ Civill, idle people maye 
have noe occasion to taxe yo^ disposinge of Churche Affaires. And I assure you that 
a little charge in this kinde wold bee well placed being a thinge acceptable to God, 
to the Kinge and to all good People. 

Nowe for the Buysiness of the Librarye, if you shall be pleased to make as 
good a stypend as you can spare to the Keeper thereof, I doe not doubt but by the 
Noblenes and Charitye of the Nobilitye and Gentrye and Clergye of the Country 
the Stalles will fill a pace and that you shall receive much Comfort every waye, from 
this worthie and pious worke of yours. I have accordinge to my promisse sent my 
poore mite of Ten poundes to helpe to furnishe a parte of a Stall and writt my Letters 


to excite others to doe the like. And I will never faile to praye to God (as I am 
bound) for the prosperitie and happinesse of yo^ Corporation and so remayne ever 

yr very loving freind

of Leicester 


The fact that the greater part of this letter deals with the matter of the Chancel 
of St. Martin's, the proper uses for it and the lawful position of the Communion 
Table, led no doubt to the suggestion in local histories that the Bishop's care was 
for the Church rather than for the Library. 

This, however, is a mistake. Williams was one of the great booklovers of the 
time, and vied with his great opponent. Archbishop Laud, in his generous liberality 
towards places of learning. ' One of the best points in his character,' it has been 
said, ' as in Laud's, was his readiness to befriend individual men of learning and 
learned foundations.' 

Of this generosity it will be sufficient to cite two conspicuous examples. One 
of the noblest of his many benefactions was the founding of a new Library in 
his own College, St. John's, Cambridge. His offer was first made anonymously, 
but afterwards he revealed himself as the benefactor, and in the end the total sum 
he expended on the building alone is stated in the Baker MSS. in the Harleian 
Collection to have been over £2,500. 

Readers of Dean Stanley's Memorials of Westminster will recollect the charming 
extract from Racket's Life of Williams which, after describing in glowing words 
his care for the music of the Abbey, goes on to tell of his provision of a Library 
(still in existence) and of his gifts to it. 

' With the same generosity and strong propension of mind to enlarge the 
boundaries of learning he converted a waste-room, situate in the East side of 
the Cldisters, into Plato's Portico, into a goodly Library, modelled it into decent 
shape, furnished it with desks and chairs, accoutred it with all utensils, and stored 
it with a vast number of learned volumes. . . . When he received thanks from 
all the professors of learning in and about London, far beyond his expectations, 
because they had free admittance to seek honey from the flowers of such a garden 
as they wanted before, it compelled him to unlock his cabinet of jewels, and bring 


forth his choicest manuscripts. A right noble gift in all the books he gave to this 
Serapeum, but especially the parchments. Some good authors were conferred 
by other benefactors, but the richest fruit was shaken from the boughs of this 
one tree, which will keep green in an unfading memory in spite of the tempest 
of iniquity.' 

These larger benefactions to learning belong to an earlier period of Williams' 
life, that to Cambridge to the years 1623-4, and that to Westminster to 1626. But 
in 1632-3 his ' propen^ion of mind' was equally strong in the like direction. 

In addition to sending his ' poor mite of Ten poundes to helpe to furnishe 

a parte of a stall' — a gift equivalent to at least £50 of our money — the Bishop 

wrote a letter to the Lord-Lieutenant of the County, Henry Hastings, Fifth Earl 

of Huntingdon, which is preserved in the State Papers (S. P. Dom. Car. I. vol. 246. 

No. 41). It is worth quoting, if only because it is almos! sufficient to clear up all 

doubt as to whether a building was erected in 1632-3, or a room fitly provided. 

To the right hono^'^ my very good Lo: the Earle of Huntingdon. 

Right honorable and my most noble Lord : my best respects to yo^ good Lopp. 

and . my most honoWe Lady remembred. Whereas the Towne & Corporacon of 

Leicester being the shiretowne of that County hath been pleased piously to provide 

and furnish a fayre and decent Roome for a Library in that place, and to allot 

some meanes to maynteyne a Keeper of the Bookes that shalbe there sett up, 

which is like to prove not onely a great Benefitt and Comfort to all the Clergie of 

that remote and inland County, but withall a matter of greate conveniency to the 

gentrie thereabouts, and an Ornament to all the Shire. 

My humble suyte vnto yo' good Lpp. is, that God hath made yo^ Lpp: 
a personage of that great Eminencie, and equall pietie in those parts, soe that you 
wold be pleased to recomend this charitable worke, vnto the worthie Knights and

18 Sept. 1633. 


At the same date he wrote to Dr. Travers, the Rector of Thurcaston, probably 
his Commissary or Official for the Archdeaconry, requesting him to use his efforts 
in soliciting the aid of the Clergy in their respective Deaneries. This letter does not 
seem to have been preserved. The State Papers (Cal. S. P. Dom. 1633-4, p. 392) 
give a summary of what Dr. Travers wrote. He speaks of the ' pious design of his 
Lordship who, being a great blessing to, the places and times wherein he lives, is 
both studious of the same and actually has advanced it by many memorable good 
works, and deserves that his memory should be for ever blessed. Having been 
happy in works of the like nature in other places, and now beginning a like work 
among them, many reasons there be which should move them to go after him to 
that work, the charge and care whereof redound to him, the use and profit to them. 
The body politic of Leicester lend their helping hand. They have provided the lay 
part of a library, which is their proper, namely the body and case ; mutual love and 
correspondency require of the persons addressed that they should animate that body 
and fill that case vfith books. He urges them by various considerations to water that 
which others have planted. He is to give account to the Bishop, by the bearer, and 
requests them to return their answers by the same person.' 

The efforts of Mr. Angell and his friends, supported in these ways by a great 
Bishop, who was himself such a generous patron of learning, resulted in liberal gifts 
both of money and books. The list of the donors in Nichols' History need not now 
be repeated. It includes the names of Heyrick of Beaumanoir, Farnham of Quorndon, 
Hazlerig of Noseley, Pulteney of Misterton and Turvile of Normanton Turvyle, 
amongst the county families, many of the citizens of Leicester, with the Mayor and 
the Master of Wyggeston's Hospital at their head, and many also of the country clergy, 
including Anthony Cade of Billesdon and Richard Rustat of Barrow-on-Soar. 

In all probability the number of books at first was not large. On a liberal 
estimate those enumerated in Nichols under the names of the respective donors 
would be under 300, and if 100 more volumes (also a liberal estimate) be allowed 
for the remains of the old parochial library removed from St. Martin's Church, the 
total :<'ould be comparatively small. John Angell, who had been appointed Keeper 
of the Library, is stated to have made a classified catalogue of them to which he 
aflSxed the mottoes : — 

Qualis cujuscunque animi affectus, talis est homo. 
Ubi amor, ibi oculus. 
This, however, is not one of the rich store of documents which in Leicester have 


survived the times when such records received little care. It is impossible to say 
whether or not it included the generous bequest which, a few years after the Library 
was founded, enriched it with some of its choicest treasures and which must now be 

In the year 1645, under the will of Thomas Hayne, a native of Thrussington-— 
who for some years had been resident in London as a master at Merchant Taylors' 
School and, later, usher at Christ's Hospital — Leicester received several legacies, and 
amongst them the following, which may best be stated in the terms of the will itself. 

Th? part of the will which disposes of his books begins with bequests to his 
nephew ' Mr. Abraham Hayne, Preacher, my Montanus interlinear Bible and Junius 
and Tremelius his latine Bible and Doctor Willetts Synopsis ', and ' to Mr. Richard 
Hayne my brother the booke of Martirs in three volumes '. The will then pro- 
ceeds : — 

' I give and bequeath Master Hugh Broughtons works in fower volumes in 
quarto, and one finale booke of the lesser treatise bound in russett leather, and his 
coinent on the Revelation, and his large comment in vellum with manic notes 
written therein, to the Hbrary in Westminster CoUedge there to be kept for ever.' 

' I give and bequeath all my other books whatsoever not above menconed 
and bequeathed, to the Mayor and Aldermen and Corporation of Lester to bee 
kept and reserved for ever in a public Library there already made or to bee made 
hereafter. Item I give for and towards the carryinge of my said bookes to the 
said Library fower pounds.' 

The will was executed on September 28, 1640. Hayne died on July 27, 1645, 
and his will was proved on August 11. In regard to certain legacies to the town for 
the purpose of enabling the Mayor and Corporation to nominate to two exhibitions 
at Lincoln College, Oxford, from which he had graduated, the will provided that they 
should 'not bee payde or delivered to the said Colledge untill the present warres 
and distractions of Kingdome shall bee ended and Students settled peaceably in the 
Universities '. No such provision is found as to the legacies of books and the one to 
Leicester took effect within a few months. The Hall Papers contain letters from 
Mr. John Hayne, the brother and executor, dated October 4 and 10, 1645, and in 
the accounts of John Hynde and William Francke, Chamberlains of the Borough for 
1645-6, the entry is to be found : — 

' pd for the carridge of Mr. Hayne's books from london and other charges as 
appears by bill xl' ix^ iiijd '. 

A later letter from John Hayne speaks of ' an inventorie ' as having been sent, but 

C .Jit-chHshol) of y<rri^ 1641 ) 


his and the ' bill of chardges ' have both disappeared, and the inventories attached to 
wills proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury are wanting for that one month 
(August) in the year 1645. If, then, the question be asked whether Thomas Hayne's 
books can be identified in the Library at the present day, the answer is, in the first 
place, that a few certainly can. The well-known Codex Leicestrensis has his autograph 
on the first folio, together with the autograph (in Greek characters) of William 
Chark ; another autograph of Thomas Hayne was discovered in making the present 
catalogue, on the last page of a book or tract by Gibutius among some half illegible 
scribbling. In the next place the fact that Hayne's autograph and that of William 
Chark occur on the Codex makes it all but certain that another book bearing Chark's 
autograph (also in Greek characters) was part of Hayne's legacy. Further, the 
extracts from the will, as well as a letter to Bodley's Librarian preserved at Oxford 
(MS. Bodl. Add. A. 64, fol. 133), show that the works of Hugh Broughton were held 
by him in high esteem, and it is reasonable' to conclude that those of Broughton's 
works now in the Library (and also a work now missing which was in the Library in 
1669) were part of his bequest. Nichols tells us, on the authority of MS. details 
before him which cannot now be found, that Hayne owing to lameness had been a 
student from his Oxford days, that he was ' a noted critic and excellent linguist and a 
solid divine, beloved of learned men and particularly respected of Selden ' ; also, that 
' the books he bequeathed to Leicester were more than 600 in number, including some 
rare MSS. and many school books '. It is worthy of note, in view of this statement, 
that the Library contains now a good many books which bear the marks of having 
been used in schools, including a Latin Grammar with Ben Jonson's autograph and 
motto. If we take the number of books before Hayne's bequest at 400, even if 
allowance be made for the many losses during the eighteenth century and possibly 
later, there must be still about half at least of Hayne's bequest on the shelves at the 
present day. 

No local tradition has survived as to what influence secured Hayne's interest. 
He had a relative who was Rector of Leire in the County, and who has himself 
recorded the relationship on the Title-page of a book which he himself presented. 
Possibly Hayne may have heard in this way of what was being done on the motion 
and with the approbation of Bishop Williams. Yet as Williams held the Deanery of 
Westminster with his Bishopric, and had done so much, a few years before, for the 
Library there, Hayne, who clearly had an interest in that Library, may have been 
moved to further the work done by Williams in Leicester, by knowing what Williams 



had done for ' Westminster CoUedge ', or even by his own personal enjoyment in 
sucking honey from the flowers in that ' goodly Serapeum '. 

A collection of books which has seen but little change and comparatively few addi- 
tions since the year 1669, cannot fail to have an interest of its own. Whether the 
catalogue compiled by Angell had been lost in the Civil War or had been taken 
away by him in 1650, when he could not take the 'Engagement' of the Inde- 
pendents and, being dismissed from the Confratership Of Wyggeston Hospital, left 
Leicester for Grantham, another Catalogue was written in 1669, which still exists. 
This is practically a hand-list, giving short Titles and years of publication, with, some- 
times but not always, the places of publication also. Comparing this list with the 
books now on the shelves, it is a matter of great regret that the Library was not better 
safeguarded in the past, and that careless handling and worse have very seriously 
impaired the present value of the collection as a whole. More than 100 volumes are 
now wanting, and these include what, if they were still in the Library, would be 
among its choicest treasures. 

A further subject of regret is that many of the books now on the shelves have 
either lost their title-pages or have been deprived of the lower part of them, containing 
generally an illustration, either emblematical or historical, which presumably was 
desired by some collector, and was accordingly cut out. Extra-illustrating, which 
was at one time quite a passion with book-collectors, has been the cause of the 
mutilation and partial destruction of a great number of choice and valuable books, 
and a public collection such as this would be peculiarly liable to the raids of unprin- 
cipled persons, who, perhaps, judged that they had some justification in the fact that 
nobody cared for ' musty old folios '. The compilers of this new Catalogue have had 
no little difficulty in some cases in assigning proper dates to books which have been 
ill-treated in this way. Fair wear and tear is, of course, responsible for a good deal 
of damage, but when the loosening of the pages of some of the books, or the broken 
state of the binding, has made repairs necessary, the directions to the binder have not 
been always correctly given, and the lettering is in consequence very inaccurate. 

Enough has been said by way of regret for the past, its carelessness, and its 
mistakes. A much pleasanter task is to turn to the treasures which still remain, and 
to point out some of the features of general interest. 

First, no doubt, among the Library's treasures is the Cursive MS. of the New 
Testament known to the learned as the Codex Leicestrensis. Except that the 
beginning is wanting, and the last leaves seriously defective, this MS. is in excellent 


condition, and has escaped the injury that has befallen a beautiful (?) thirteenth- 
century MS. of the Vulgate, viz. the snipping away of a large number of the blank 
lower portions of its vellum leaves. The text, however, seems to have been hardly 
touched, and it is a beautiful specimen of caligraphy. Noteworthy also is a volume 
of miscellaneous tracts of the thirteenth century bound together. Several of them 
are imperfect, and they are of varying interest. The book was sent some years 
since to the British Museum and examined by the late Sir F. Madden, whose report 
seems to be incorporated in the list of contents now to be seen at the end of the 
volume. The contents are partly theological, partly grammatical, partly general, 
A treatise on dreams, attributed to the prophet Daniel, is among the more curious 

Another MS. still remaining of those which the Library once possessed is 
one in English of 2 1 2 folios which has been re-backed and lettered ' Wycliffe's 
Sermons in MS.' It consists of short postils for the Sundays of the year. 

These MSS. with a few books have been kept for some years past in the strong 
room at the present Town Hall. 

Passing from these to the Collection still in the old Town Hall, Theology 
is the strongest subject represented and that of the Reformers more strongly than 
that of their opponents. 

Conspicuous among the Bibles is Walton's Polyglott (London, 1657) (containing 
the Commonwealth not the Royalist dedication), with the Lexicon Orientale, by 
Golius and Castell. Wechel's editions of Tremellius, Junius and Beza's version, in 
folio, and also of the LXX and New Testament in Greek (1582), are present but 
injured. There is the New Testament, Vulgate version, with notes of Arias Montanus 
(Geneva, 16 19); the LXX version of the Old Testament printed at Paris in 1628, 
and Daniel's Cambridge edition of the New Testament (1542), while of EngHsh 
versions there are ' Cranmer's ' (1553), and ' The Bishops" (1595). The Geneva 
version (1599), the Authorized (1648), and 'Tindal's' Bible (so mentioned in the 
hand-list of 1669) seem now to be missing. 

Of the Greek and Latin Fathers we cannot expect, and do not find the critical 
Benedictine editions, ^either folio or quarto, but there is a noble copy of Savile's 
edition of St. Chrysostom (Greek Text) only printed at Eton, in eight volumes 
folio (16 1 2, 13). Of the same Father there is also the edition of Ducaeus of 
Bordeaux (Greek and Latin) in six volumes, folio (Paris), and the Latin only in 
five volumes (1556). Piscator's edition of St. Athanasius (Greek and Latin). 


Paris, 1627, in two volumes, is marred by the mutilation of the first Title. Clement 
of Alexandria (Paris, 1529, two volumes) has also one Title mutilated, also the Basle 
Edition of 1 7 18. St. Ambrose is the Paris edition of 1549, injured at the beginning ; 
St. Augustine, ten volumes in six, is the Basle edition of 1556 ; St. Basil (Greek 
and Latin), Basle, 1540 ; St. Jerome, nine volumes in four, is from the famous Froben 
press, Basle, 1553; St. Gregory the Great is the Antwerp edition of 1615 ; St. Gregory 
Nazianzen is represented by both the Aldine edition of 1553, in a fine leather binding 
with heraldic devices, and in the Greek only of Hervagius (Basle, 1550), also in a fine 
stamped leather cover. 

Among books printed in the fifteenth century may be noticed : — 
Anthoninus Florentinensis, Summe Pars Tertia (of St. Thomas Aquinas), 
printed by Peter Trach of Spire, 1488. In the original binding, re-backed, slightly 

Antonius de Butrio, Lectura de translatione Prelatorum. Venice, Bernardinus 
de Novaria. 1485. 

Bound in the same volume with the last is Johannes de Imola, Opus in 
Clementinas, Venice, John of Cologne and 'Johannes Manthen Gerettzem, 1480.' 
A beautiful copy, but wanting the first leaf. 

Legenda Aurea . . . quae lombardica nominatur historia. A very early 
instance of a Title-page, which is of excellent execution, as are also the initial 
capitals. It has the badge of 'Jaques Huguetan, libraire en Lyon ', and a colophon 
stating that the book is for sale at Lyons and in Paris. [1476.] 

Incipit liber dans modum legendi Abbreuiaturas, Peter Levet in the University 
of Paris, 1490. A rare book.' 

Henry Herp (Franciscan), Speculum aureum decem preceptorum dei. Printed 
at Nuremberg by Antony Koburger, 1481. 

Thomas de Argentina (of Strasburg) super quattuor libros Sententiarum. 
Printed by Martin Flach, Strasburg, 1490. A fine copy, perfect and with uncut 
edges, original binding of stamped leather over wooden boards. 

Commentaries on Holy Scripture are largely represented. Hugo Cardinalis, 
in six beautiful folio volumes by Antony Koburger at Nuremberg, 1498 to 1504, 
claims the first rank. Others can only be barely mentioned. Jansenius, Paraphrase 
on the Psalms, Canticles and Ecclesiastes, Louvain, 1574; Cornelius a Lapide, in 

' The Editors have to thank Mr. R. A. Peddle for calling attention to the fact that this edition 
has not been elsewhere noted. 


seven volumes, Antwerp and Lyons, 1615-1635, sadly mutilated, most of the Titles 
having disappeared. Cardinal Caietan on the Gospels, Paris, 1540; Calvin's 
Commentaries on the Bible, Geneva, 1563-16 17 ; Erasmus" Paraphrase on the New 
Testament, Basle, 1541 ; MEND09A on the Kings, three volumes, Lyons, 1633; 
Luther, Maldonatus, Marloratus, Oecolampadius, Pareus, Pellicanus, Piscator, 
ToLETUS, ZuiNGLius, and others. 

Of Ecclesiastical History there are the two great collections of Margarinus 
de la Bigne, Paris, 1624. The Titles representing a ship are mostly gone. There 
is also Concilia Generalia et Provincialia (Greek and Latin), Severinus Binius, four 
volumes in five, Cologne, 1618. 

Controversial Theology of course has its considerable place. Under the name 
of Arminius there is an 8vo volume of Disputations embracing a great part of 
Theology, and there are two books on Arminianism, printed in London, 1626, one 
of them by H. Burton. One Brandius introduces lengthy Conferences of Dutch 
Ministers on the subject of Predestination and the Remonstrants, 1615-18. There 
are also several 410 and 8vo volumes of Tracts relating to the different controversies 
in the English Church between 1613 and 1694. 

School-books, though many have been lost, still form a considerable class. 

Of Dictionaries and Lexicons there are two by Ambrose Calepin. His 
Lexicon, diligently corrected and published at Basle in 1530, and his Pentaglottos in 
Latin, Greek, German, Flemish and French, Antwerp, 1546. Thomas Cooper's 
Latin-English Dictionary, London, 1545, long the popular Latin Dictionary in 
England, is in good preservation. There are also Stephanus's Latin and French 
Dictionary, Paris, 1561, and Suidas' Greek Lexicon, two volumes, Geneva, 1619. 
There is a fine copy of Erasmus's Moriae Encomium revised by the author (Froben, 
Basle, 1522), in a choice stamped leather binding, and the same author's Familiar 
Colloquies (Basle, 1559), De recta . . . pronunciatione (Basle, 1528), and De copia 
verborum et rerum, a London edition of which the Title is missing. 

Of editions of the Classics may be noted: — Caesar (Basle, 1591), Cicero, Opera 
(Paris, 1554), and separate editions of De Oratore, Orationes, &c. Virgil, with 
wood-cut illustrations (Leipsic, 1596), Terence, a Lyons edition of 1560, and the 
Heautontimoroumenos (Frankfort, 1592). Of Tacitus there is no copy in the 
original, but Grenewey's Translation (London, 1605). Of Horace also there is no 
copy, nor of Juvenal, but there is an Index of words occurring in the Satires. Plautus 
is represented by a Basle edition of 1523 ; Plato also by an edition at the same place 


in 1556, and another, with Ficinus's translation (Frankfort, 1602). Of Aristotle there 
is an interesting folio volume without place or year, but c. 1490, which contains 
Commentaries on his works De Coelo et mundo, the Physics, and others. There are 
also editions of this Philosopher — complete works (Greek and Latin), two volumes in four, 
sine loco, 1597, Organum, Hanover, 161 1, and the Ethics, beginning wanting (c. 1530)- 
Thucydides in the original is Wechel's edition, Frankfort, 1594, and there is a copy 
of Hobbes' Translation of which the Title is missing. lamblichus, 1598, Isocrates, 
1502, Appian, 1592, and an Aldine edition of Athenaeus (editio princeps) may also 
be mentioned. 

The medical works, with some few exceptions, were not part of the original 
library or of the earher gifts to it. They were presented by Mr. Richard Ludlam 
of Leicester late in the seventeenth century, and many of them bear his autograph. 
A competent judge in such matters has described them as ' an average seventeenth- 
century collection '. In all probability it has suffered, like other classes in the Library, 
by being ' culled over '. 

Among lare, out of the way books or tracts one may notice : — 

The Seduction of Arthington by Hackett especiallie with some tokens of his 
unfeigned repentance, London (1592); Cygnaeus (Eusebius), Conspicilium Notitiae 
inserviens oculis aegris — on the Rosicrucians — 1 6 1 9 ; Pauli de Didis, Sophia Panaretos, 
a chronogram giving the date, 1618; Neuhusius (Petrus), Pia & utilissima admonitio, 
1618; and Kirstenius (Peter), of Breslau, Grammatica Arabica, &c., Breslau, 1608, 
10, II, with an appreciation of the author by certain reverend men, 161 1. This last 
may be considered one of the choicest books in the whole collection. It is in 
splendid condition. One hardly knows whether to admire most the beautifully 
engraved Title-page or the typical perfection of the whole work. It appears to have 
been the first attempt at an Arabic Grammar, and the Arabic type had to be cut under 
the author's immediate direction. In one note he apologizes for shortcomings in 
spite of his best exertions. The work may well have inspired Archbishop Laud with 
his zeal towards the Arabic language, of which Oxford University and the Bodleian 
Library have reaped the lasting benefit. In this work the dates are indicated by 

A rare collection of Tracts was printed at Basle in 1561. The first by Joannes de 
Rupescissa is on the five essences of all things ; then follow Arnald de Villanova, De 
Sanguine humano distillate, Savonarola, De aqua vitae, &c. Very rare also are the 
two early editions of Seton's Dialectica, 1563 and 1570. 


A specially choice volume may also be noted — Pharmacopoeia Bruxellensis 
(1641), followed by the Statutes of the Brussels College of Physicians. 

The catalogue of an old library in a provincial town must be in part of the nature 
of a guide-book if it is to be of use to the residents and the visitors. For men who 
have a thorough knowledge of books, all that is needed is an accurate list with dates, 
places, and sufficient descriptions, in the usual abbreviated forms. But for those who 
lack this knowledge and yet have a certain interest in books and in what has come 
down from the past, a larger fullness of detail is needed, if the interest is to be main- 
tained and the avenues of inquiry kept open. It is for such persons chiefly that this 
catalogue has been prepared. While doing their best to ensure accuracy on the 
points which are essential the compilers have endeavoured to give such full and 
detailed facts as may make it comparatively easy for any local student, of any degree, 
to follow his bent, if he is specially interested in anything which the Library contains. 
For this reason they have noted the badges and devices, with their mottoes and legends, 
which were adopted by printers in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and in 
some cases the quaint conceits of early printed books in other respects. They have 
also been specially careful to transcribe, or at all events call attention to, whatever 
they have found in MS. on any part of the books. 

This has led to some interesting discoveries in the course of their work. 

The undoubted autograph of Ben Jonson, already referred to, was recognized by 
Prebendary Deedes some years since, when he was on a visit to Leicester, and the 
autographs of Thomas Hayne and William Chark on the Codex are noted in Dr. 
Rendel Harris's work on that MS. published in 1887. But discoveries during the 
work of preparation include two autographs of the Earls of Huntingdon, who were so 
closely connected with the Borough in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, a second 
autograph of William Chark, together with many inscriptions on books given, such as 
those of representatives of the families of Heyrick, Farnham, Hazlerig, and Turvile. 
Every name, whether known or unknown, has been copied with the utmost care, and 
as much MS. besides as space allowed. The results are possibly more suggestive to 
the compilers than they can well be to others. But a careful comparison of them, 
together with a little knowledge of local history, will at least add to the human 
interest of a collection which, it is strange to reflect, was, when it was founded, a 
modern library, and is now a relic of the far-off past. 

Two things only need further be said. First, the compilers desire to tender 
their warmest thanks to the Mayor and Corporation for the confidence reposed in 


them, especially to Mr. Alderman Sawday, Mr. Alderman Chitham, and the other 
members of the Estates Committee — as also to the late Town Clerk (SirE. V. Hiley), 
the present Town Clerk (Mr. Pritchard), and his assistant (Mr. Payne), to Mr. Kirkby 
and Mr. Heme, the Librarians respectively of the Municipal Library and the Per- 
manent Library, for their readiness to facilitate and help in every way a work which 
could not be done in a short time, and which needed help of many kinds. And 
next, remembering the endless possibilities of mistakes where so much detail has to 
be given, they desire, like the good printers of old, when apologizing for the ' escapes ' 
in the press, to throw themselves on the mercy of their 'good Readers' and beg 
that ' in their fayre charity ' they will pardon all.

At the end : 

Good Reader, it may fall out, that iu this booke some faults are escaped in the printing, 
by mistaking or misplacing the figures and other parts of the quotation. Which is no maruell 
in quotations of this nature, where many figures go together : and I myselfe being many 
miles, aboue 100, from the presse, that I could not helpe it. Neuerthelesse I will maintaine 
the quotation, for substance to be true, though the Printer may haue mistaken it : and learned 
men that will take so much paines, may find that which I intend, I doubt not, by their owne 
knowledge of the place, if the numbers of the quotation deceiue them. I know not whether 
there be any such defects yet or no : but this I admonish because the Papists, if they find an 
errour in the printing of one of our bookes, use to exclame as if an article of our faith were 
razed out : neuer remembring the like casualties of their owne. It is one thing if I haue wil- 
fully forged or falsified a place, and another thing if the Printer only haue mistaken the 
quotation. The latter may be, but the former is not : as I will be ready to satisfie any that 
will charge me with it.

The gift of Mr. Tliomas Hayne. It bears the autograph of the donor, and in Greelc characters 
that of William Chark. 

The beginning is wanting and the last leaves are defective. 

On the fly-leaf opposite the first page there is a note of its having been collated by Dr. Scrivener 
in 1855, followedby (i)a note on Apoc. xi. 9, p. 202 ; (2) by a relerence in pencil to Dr. Scrivener's 
Introduction, &c., signed ' W. H. Simcox, Rector of Harlaxton '. 

On the fly-leaf opposite the last page the following is written : ' Collated, Sep. 1866. Richard 
Smyth, M.A., Prof. Orient. Lit. London.' 

On p. 203 there are marginal notes on u particular passage, first in an unknown hand, next 
by Dr. Tregelles, and lastly by one who only gives initials, ' O. T. D,' 

The late Mr. Kelly has noted in pencil certain defects and injuries on folios 77, 86, and 201, 
besides the marginal annotations just mentioned. 

BIBLIA LATINA, transcribed on Vellum. 

At the end : ' W. Stanlay alio noie Walne sc'psit.' 

It is mutilated by the cutting away of parts of the pages which were not %vritten upon, and in 
some cases this has slightly injured the writing itself. 

The Royal Arms are stamped on the front and back, with the motto ' Honi soit ', &c. 
The following names are on the last page : — 

J) me Richardu Feterssen ; Jhon Coke, John Stoone, Lestere.

A note in W. Kelly's hand states that Mr. T. Wright, F.S.A., read a description of the contents 
at the Archaeological Congress in Leicester. The date 1S70, first inserted, is erased and 1862
