Acknowledgments 



In the preparation of this, as with the previous and subsequent Oxford 
volumes, the editors have been grateful for the support of the National 
Endowment for the Humanities, which awarded the project a grant for 
the years 1991 to 1994, and to the Committee on Faculty Research at 
the College of William and Mary. 

For expert advice, we are again indebted to Simon Bailey of the 
Oxford University Archives for elucidating problems arising directly 
from our sources, to the Bodleian Library for allowing the Editor in the 
United Kingdom access to the on-line catalogue of its pre-1922 
holdings, and to the staffs not only of the Earl Gregg Swem Library at 
William and Mary, of the Library of Congress, of the Folger Library, of 
Cambridge University Library and of the Library of Magdalen College, 
Oxford, but of those many libraries to which our Contributing Editors 
have laid siege. Many individuals, too many to enumerate, have been 
generously forthcoming with expert advice and with encouragement. 

To our Contributing Editors, who have pursued with pertinacity, 
ingenuity and patience the identifications of the items in the inventories 
our debt is obvious, but not too obvious to state. To their scholarly 
labours they have had to add the frequently galling experience of 
submitting, for the sake of over-all consistency, to the irksome 
limitations of "the system." We thank them for their enthusiasm and 
their tolerance as well as for their skills. 

As one who, on being recruited to the project in the early days, won- 
dered whether the whole scheme were not too fraught with ambition ever 
to leave the runway, I must record here my astonishment at the level of 



XIV PLRE 

commitment of the General Editor. Without his cheerful determina- 
tion, his constant attention to detail and his irresistible powers to 
persuasion, the project would surely have foundered. With them there 
seems no limit to what may be achieved.

Introduction 



With this volume, PLRE continues publication of 162 book-lists 1 con- 
tained in the inventories taken between 1507 and 1653 under the juris- 
diction of the Chancellor of Oxford University (exercised by the Vice- 
Chancellor), mostly for the purposes of probate. The lists are published 
in chronological order (see Order under Methodology and Format below); 
twenty lists, dating from 1558 to 1570, appear in the present volume to 
bring the total of Oxford lists edited in PLRE to eighty-two (see PLRE 
1993, Volume 2 for the first sixty-two). The remaining lists will be 
published in Volumes 4 through 7. Like all book-lists in this Oxford 
series, the lists edited here are found in manuscripts in the Oxford 
University Archives housed in the Bodleian, specifically in the probate 
records and the Chancellors's Registers. These records have been made 
available on microfilm by Research Publications under the title The 
Social History of Property and Possessions: Part I: Inventories and Wills, 
Including Renaissance Library Catalogues, from the Bodleian Library, Oxford, 
1436-1814 (Reading, England, 1990). 

A team of nearly fifty international scholars, working from transcrip- 
tions of the manuscripts made by Mr. Walter Mitchell, M.A. (sometime 



1 This number differs from the total given in Volume 1; in editing, several lists 
were identified as printer's stock or as books borrowed from colleges, not personally 
owned books. 



XXII PLRE 

Assistant to the Keeper of the University Archives), has been enlisted to 
edit the 162 lists. By granting PLRE permission to use his transcrip- 
tions, a labor of many years, Mr. Mitchell has immeasurably reduced the 
time required to make this information available to the scholarly com- 
munity. This professional generosity places the PLRE project and 
scholars working in the Tudor and early Stuart periods greatly in Mr. 
Mitchell's debt. 

The purpose and three-part design of PLRE has been described in its 
first volume, to which the reader is referred for details (PLRE 1992, 
l:xvi-xviii). In brief, however, Part 1 of PLRE is the published form of 
annotated book-lists associated with Tudor and early Stuart men and 
women; PLRE 67-86 are contained in this volume. Part 2 is in elec- 
tronic form and is a cumulative and more detailed catalogue of those 
lists and others (Appended, or APND lists) previously published 
elsewhere. It is available upon request from the General Editor and 
from the Editor in the United Kingdom, and is soon to be available in 
CD-ROM from the publishers. Part 3, the PLRE Cumulative Catalogue, 
is a series of indices and concordances to the complete PLRE database. 
This Cumulative Catalogue, which appears near the end of each volume 
of PLRE, is regularly enlarged and revised to incorporate newly edited 
book-lists. 

Errors and Connections 

Anyone with even a passing acquaintance with early book-lists knows 
that their fragmentary and too often simply illegible entries make 
identifying books an extremely difficult task. Further, details of these 
early books resist uniformity, even when the works are identifiable; yet 
this information must be uniformly entered into a database to meet the 
categorical requirements of PLRE's design and purpose. However 
methodical and careful the labor, providing error-free information 
under such conditions is more to be wished than realized. Happily, 
however, the ease with which a database can be corrected promises that 
any misdirection PLRE may inadvertently provide will be temporary, 
and will encourage PLRE's users to become part of the scholarly 
collaboration that has always been central to the project. The editors of 
PLRE ask, therefore, that errors noted and corrections proposed be 
forwarded (with supporting evidence for the corrections) to either 
address found in the Appendix.

INTRODUCTION XXIII 

Methodology and Format 

Identification and Annotation. Identification of items, the annotations, 
and the bio-bibliographical introductions preceding the book-lists are 
the work of diverse scholars and reflect their individual research and 
study. But collaboration, intending to provide a reasonable uniformity, 
is routine at all editorial stages of the PLRE project. Consistency is 
necessary to avoid offering confusing information when the results of 
research conducted by individual scholars are combined; it is also 
required to meet the practical demands of a searchable database. For 
example, editorial consultation would discourage identifying a late 
sixteenth-century manuscript entry of Elucidarius poeticus as the school 
text written by Johann Gast and issued, apparently, in a single edition 
(1544) to the disregard of the widely published encyclopedic work of 
the same name by Hermann Torrentinus, appearing as it did in at least 
a dozen editions before 1600. If, however, a Contributing Editor has 
good reason to question whether such an entry represents the Torrenti- 
nus title, the Gast work, or Robert Estienne's book, another popular 
work of that same name, the Torrentinus identification would carry one 
of the standard PLRE qualifying terms, probable or perhaps. Understand- 
ably, annotations to such an item may also vaiy from one Contributing 
Editor to another. 

Among the most troublesome entries to identify with consistency and 
uniformity are the appearances, by name only, of various widely pub- 
lished authors such as Virgil, Quintilian, Horace, Terence, Sallust, Lu- 
cian, and Homer. On occasion, context and supplementary information 
(e.g., cum commento) will help to identify these entries as Works, but 
generally editors choose to qualify such items with probable or perhaps if 
they do not list them as Unidentified. Similarly, when an entry consists 
of the name of an author popularly associated with one particular title, 
that work is assumed in the absence of a clear connection to one of his 
less well-known works, with a qualification often attached. Thus, an 
entry of "Agostino Dad" will usually result in an identification of 
Elegantiolae, and an entry of "Theodorus, Gaza" will normally result in 
an identification of Institutiones grammaticae, both usually qualified. Such 
differences as may appear in identifications and commentary, then, 
reflect the regard that PLRE has for reasonable disagreement among 
scholars, particularly in an area of research where the primary material 
is so often fragmentary and imprecise. 



XXIV PLRE 

Order. The book-lists are presented in chronological order by year of 
the owner's death, or, if the date of death is unknown, by year of an 
owner's will if extant, and then alphabetically within each year. In some 
cases, however, the dates of death and a will are unknown; in others, 
documents and biographical sources disagree about the dates; and in 
still others, such dates are irrelevant (e.g., an inventory of books may 
have been compiled for purposes other than evaluating an owner's es- 
tate, with the owner dying years later). In these cases, other informa- 
tion, such as the date of the inventory, is used to determine the place of 
a book-list in PLRE order. An explanation of the determining date is 
parenthetically appended to each owner's name in the Table of Con- 
tents. For more complete information about the owners' dates of 
deaths, wills, and inventories, readers are directed to the individual 
introductions and to the PLRE database. 

Introduction. Each book-list is preceded by an introductory essay treat- 
ing biographical and bibliographical matters relating to the owner and 
the collection. The introduction is not intended to provide a complete 
analysis of the book-list, and even less a full study of the owner's life. 
Except where two dates are provided (e.g., 25 February 1587/88), all 
dates are given in new style. 

Names of owners have been regularized according to modern forms 
with, in many cases, variant spellings provided. Such alternate forms are 
derived from published sources such as BRUO, BRU02, and Alumni 
Oxonienses; whenever the form given in BRUO or BRU02 (the standard 
authorities on members of Oxford University to 1540) differs from the 
adopted PLRE form, it is listed first among the variants and identified. 
The name of the owner at the head of the introduction is followed by: 
the owner's profession and appropriate academic degrees (if any), the 
kind of source the list of books is taken from (inventory, receipt, will, 
etc.), and the date of that book-list. 

For nearly all of these Oxford men happening to die in residence at 
whatever stage of their academic career, PLRE has chosen to use the ge- 
neric term "scholar" to indicate their presumed avocations at the time 
of death and to distinguish graduates still at the University from those 
who had gone out into the world. Most of them would have been at 
least in minor orders, and a good many of them supported in their 
studies by the revenue of one or more benefices, but they are not here 
designated "clerics" except where there is some evidence that they were 
actively serving a cure. (Similarly, medical graduates are not designated 
"physician" in the absence of evidence for their actually having 



INTRODUCTION XXV 

practiced as such.) Instead their status is indicated either by the term 
"student," for those who had not yet graduated, or by their degree or 
degrees. A Doctor of Theology who had pursued the conventional 
course would previously have graduated B.A., M.A., and B.Th. The 
dates, and any other details, of these earlier degrees will, when 
documented, be found in the introductions to each list, but in the 
headings the senior degree alone will usually be found. Two degrees are 
given where neither is significantly senior to the other (as in the case of 
a Doctor of both Civil and Canon Law), where more than one senior 
Faculty is involved (as in the case of a theologian having also qualified 
in Canon Law), or when holding certain degrees together indicates the 
exercise of an option (it was, for example, possible to proceed to 
medical degrees either via the arts course or not: where a Bachelor of 
Medicine had previously graduated M.A., both degrees are shown). 

Classmarks and Transcriptions. The Oxford University Archives 
classmark of the document containing the book-list and the source of 
any previously published transcriptions of the list are appended to the 
introduction. 

Reference List. Placed between the introduction and the annotated en- 
tries and serving both, a reference list provides a bibliography of works 
cited in each (except for the sources found in the Common Abbrevi- 
ations). The form used in the reference list is the Author-Date System 
of the Chicago Manual of Style, 13th ed., 1982, 399-435. 

The List of Books. The book-list is presented, with clarifying emenda- 
tions, as it appears in the manuscript. Each entry is preceded by its 
assigned PLRE Number. 

Entries. Each entry is composed of some or all of the following: 



PLRE Number Book-list entry 

Name of author (alternative name of author). Title of work. Other con- 
tributors. Place of publication: stationer(s), date or range of dates. 

STC status. Annotations. Language(s) of book. Cost or appraised value 
and date of same. Current location of the book. 2 



2 PLRE has attempted to avoid the use of signs and symbols; this design is most 
prominently seen in the use of perhaps and probable (or probably) to convey degrees 
of doubt, and of commonly employed abbreviations, such as c. and et seq. 



XXVI PLRE 

PLRE Number. A PLRE Number is always composed of at least two 
numbers separated by a period. The number preceding the period 
identifies the place of the book-list within the PLRE catalogue, and the 
number following the period identifies the individual entries within that 
book-list. Thus, the forty-seventh item in the third book-list published in 
PLRE is assigned 3.47. A PLRE Number that carries an extension 
(beginning with a colon) identifies an entry in the book-list that repre- 
sents two or more works. If published separately, the works are assigned 
numeric extensions (e.g., 3.48:1 and 3.48:2); if published together in 
one volume, they are assigned letters (e.g., 3. 49: A and 3.49:B). Entries 
that contain unidentified multiple works are assigned an appropriate 
range extension (e.g., 3.50:1-4 would be used to identify "four bookes 
of verse"). If the number of works listed is unknown, the extension 
given is "multiple" (e.g., 3.51 multiple would be used to identify "divers 
small bookes"). PLRE numbers in APND lists are preceded by Ad, as in 
Ad4.36. 

Book-list entry. Within certain limits, book-lists are transcribed to repro- 
duce as faithfully as possible the entries as they appear in the manu- 
script. The letters u/v and i/j are regularized and modernized, and 
thorn is transcribed th. Readily identifiable contractions and abbrevi- 
ations are not altered, (e.g., agt, Mr, and wch), but the less common 
ones, along with unusual or ambiguous spellings, are followed by an 
emendation placed in square brackets (e.g., The trades inclease is tran- 
scribed as The trades inclease [increase]). Damaged or otherwise illegible 
portions of the manuscript are treated similarly (e.g.,/*7 us [to represent 
a hole between the / and the u in the manuscript] is transcribed asfil*us 
[filius]). Where an item is recorded as an object of bequest in a Latin 
will, its accusative form is retained. 

Name of author (alternative name of author). Names are STC forms; for 
names not appearing in the STC, forms are taken from a list of Uni- 
form Names developed by PLRE. Uniformity, as well as ease of recogni- 
tion, is the goal of PLRE in establishing names. But 1) in cases where 
the established name differs from the form in the entry and may cause 
confusion for the user, and 2) in cases where two different forms make 
virtually equal claims for recognition among scholars, parenthetical al- 
ternative forms are given. Examples: Nicolas Des Gallars is followed by 
(Nicolaus Salicetus), John Holywood by (Joannes Sacrobosco), and Nicolaus 
Tudeschis by (Panormitanus). 

On occasion, the name of an editor will appear in this place, his role

INTRODUCTION XXVII 

appropriately identified. Unidentified is used when the author cannot be 
identified from the entry (which is different from an identified work 
having been published anonymously). 

Title of work. The title of a work (short title, usually terminating with the 
first full stop) is entered when known. Often, however, the precise title 
is impossible to determine from the truncated and abbreviated entries 
commonly found in early book-lists. Further, the standard bibliograph- 
ical sources (e.g., BL, Goff, Adams), on which Contributing Editors 
usually depend for determining titles, frequently modify the actual 
titles. The main principle here, then, must be to identify the work rather 
than a particular title, especially when a work has gone through several 
editions with varied titles. As with names, uniformity is essential if titles 
in the PLRE database are to be selected for analysis. Accordingly, a Uni- 
form Titles list has been developed by PLRE along the following princi- 
ples: 1) a work that exists in a single edition is identified by its short 
title; 2) a work that exists in two or more editions that bear only slightly 
varying titles is identified by one of these titles; 3) a work that exists in 
several editions with widely varied titles is identified by an artificial title, 
a) in a construction to reflect one or more of the existing titles, but b) 
often in a construction designed to describe the work without any 
attempt to simulate a title. Artificial titles are always enclosed in square 
brackets. Livy's [Historiae Romanae decades] is an example of the first 
kind of artificial title mentioned above (3a), and [Aristotle-Ethica: com- 
mentary] by Walter Burley is an example of the latter (3b). Unidentified 
is provided when the precise work represented by the entry cannot be 
determined. 

Other contributors. The names of translators, editors, compilers, and illus- 
trators (their contributions appropriately described) are found here. 
The forms used follow the same principles described in the section 
Name of author above. 

Place of publication. If an entry is identified as a single edition of a single 
work, the city of publication is provided, regularized and modernized. 
If the entry represents a work of more than one edition printed in 
more than one city, one of three general locations is provided: Britain 
(if the identified printing houses were all in the British Isles), Continent 
(if the identified printing houses were all located on the Continent), 
and Britain or Continent (if editions were known to have been issued 
from different presses located in the British Isles and on the Conti- 



XXVIII PLRE 

nent). If a work is completely unidentified, the phrase Place unknown is 
used; where the place of publication of an identified book is unknown, 
the phrase Place not given is used. 

Stationer(s). When an entry represents a specific, identifiable edition, 
every stationer involved in the publication of the book (printer, publish- 
er, bookseller) is supplied. But since Contributing Editors generally rely 
upon bibliographical sources rather than a copy of the identified book 
for this information, the forms of presentation differ. Accordingly, 
varied forms will be found, such as: "G. Eld for L. Lisle" and "per 
Johannem Barbier, expensis Dionisii Roce," but also the non-distin- 
guishing "George Bishop, Ralph Newberie, and Robert Barker"; the 
same stationer will appear in various constructions: "ap. J. Dayum," but 
elsewhere "John Day" and "J. Daye." All stationers, however, are 
accessible by uniform names in the database. 

When a work is identified as having been published in a single city, 
but the precise edition of several possibilities issued by different print- 
ing houses cannot be determined, the phrase different houses is given. If 
the place of publication is identified as Britain, Continent, or Britain or 
Continent— signifying the impossibility of determining a precise place of 
publication— the impossibility of determining the stationer obviously fol- 
lows and this section is left blank. Stationer unknown is used when a 
work is completely unidentified or when the printer, publisher, or book- 
seller for a known book has not been identified by bibliographers. 

Date or range of dates. If a precise date of publication is known, it is 
provided. If two or more editions of different dates are possibilities, 
either a range of dates (given as, for example, 1562-1573) or the phrase 
date indeterminable is provided. NOTE: except for works listed in the 
STC and in Shaaber (which together offer for English authors a prac- 
tical comprehensiveness if not absolute inclusiveness) date ranges must 
be understood to be at best a guide. The range represents the limit 
known to the Contributing Editor who has consulted a number of bibli- 
ographical sources, but the chance that at least one earlier or later edi- 
tion exists unknown to the Contributing Editor remains a possibility. 
The same reservation also applies to works presented as a sole edition, 
and doubts, therefore, must be harbored even when a single date is 
given. A work, however, that is known to have gone through several edi- 
tions over several years understandably invites questions about any 
attempt to assign a date range with certainty (excepting the few authors 
for whom comprehensive censuses exist). Such uncertainty is particular- 



INTRODUCTION XXIX 

ly a problem with authors who were widely published during this period 
(Aristotle, Saint Augustine, Cicero, Duns, Scotus, Peter Lombard, and 
Virgil, to name but a few). 

STC status, A variety of self-explanatory phrases appear in this section, 
but the primary purpose of this information is to identify the work rep- 
resented as an STC (or Wing) book. When a work is known to have 
been published both in England and on the Continent, and the edition 
cannot be identified, its STC (or Wing) number and its non-STC status 
are both cited. If, however, an entry is unidentified, nothing can be 
determined about its place of publication; therefore, the phrase 
STC/non-STC status unknown is used. When a work issued in more than 
one edition is identified as an STC (or Wing) book, but the precise 
edition cannot be determined, only the first possible STC (or Wing) 
number is given, and et seq. is appended. 

Here also is indicated whether an entry is considered to be 
something other than a printed book, e.g., a manuscript or a book of 
blank leaves intended for use as a notebook. An entry is assumed to be 
a printed book unless clear evidence is provided to the contrary (the 
use of terms and phrases such as scriptus, books of parchment, written 
sermons, or a book of clean paper). 

Annotations. Here Contributing Editors furnish whatever information 
they believe will be useful and instructive in connection with the entry. 
All citations are abbreviated according to the Chicago Manual of Style's 
Author-Date System (Chapter 15); full bibliographical sources are found 
in the Common Abbreviations and in the Reference Lists appended to 
the individual introductions to book-lists. 

Language(s). The language (or languages) of the book is given here. If 
multiple, the languages are listed, without punctuation, in alphabetical 
order and in the order of probability. Thus, English Greek Latin will be 
found if all are known to have been employed, but Latin Greek (prob- 
able) English (perhaps) when doubts of varying degrees exist. Sometimes 
the word "or," expressing further doubt about which language was em- 
ployed, is entered. Thus, English (probable) or Latin (perhaps) will be 
found. 

Cost or appraised value and date of same. Either 1) the amount the owner 
paid for the book represented or 2) its appraised value as estimated by 
the compiler of the book-list is furnished here; the date when the 



XXX PLRE 

amount was paid or when the appraisal was made is usually limited to 
a year, which always precedes the day and month when they are given. 

Current location of the book. This information is restricted to the physical 
book cited in the book-list and should not be misunderstood to identify 
locations of other copies of the book. Whenever possible, the reposito- 
ries are cited as they appear in the STC (l:xlix-liii), identified by name, 
not by symbol.

Probate Inventory. 1558

The sheets bearing the list below are inserted in the inventory of David 
Tolley (see BRU02, 570-71, 740-41 and PLRE 68), and BRU02 (740-41) 
printed the list as part of Tolley's collection of books (items 1-228). Unlike 
the portion of the inventory definitely Tolley's, however, the inserted list is 
written in a good italic hand and bears no appraisal values. Nor does it 
carry any heading. Jayne ([1956] 1983, 134), recognizing that the list should 
be distinguished from Tolley's, conjectured c.1600 for its date in the 
absence of the owner's identity. Recently, however, the date and ownership 
have been addressed by giving attention to two notes at the foot of the list. 
The first note reads: "mr babyngton the proctor hathe sten [certain] bokes 
besides thes as hit appereth by a byll of his one [own] hand," and the 
second: "Also mr smythe of mton [Merton] collige hathe some the wch mr 
browne had of mton collyge." The first dates the list to the proctorship, 
1557 to 1558, of Francis Babington (Master of Balliol, 1559; Rector of 
Lincoln and Vice-Chancellor, 1560) while the second gives evidence that the 
owner was William Brown of Merton (Ker, 471 n. 1, and McConica, 703), 
who, like Tolley, died in 1558. 

Brown ([Browne] BRU02, 78) came from the West Country and first 
appears in the records of the University as a scholar of St. Alban's Hall. He 
proceeded B.A. in 1533 and M.A. in 1539, embarking thereafter on the 
theology course. Meanwhile, he had been elected a Fellow of Merton in 
1537 and served, in the fullness of time, as third bursar (1547-48), second 
bursar (1539-40, 1543-44 and 1546-47), first bursar (1550-51) and princi- 
pal of the post-masters (i.e., scholars) (1545-46). His aptitude for worldly 
business was recognized by the University with his appointment in 1539 as 
Clerk of the Market, and his deserts acknowledged by the ecclesiastical 
establishment by his appointment in 1554 as a prebendary of Barton and 
Canon of Wells. His college marked him as a very shrewd philosopher 
(argutissimus philosophus). He died on 19 August 1558 leaving ten pounds to 



2 PLRE 67 

Merton where, it may be inferred, he had maintained his principal resi- 
dence. 

This extensive list is particularly rich in literary material and in grammar 
and rhetoric. Practically all major classical poets and dramatists known in 
the period figure here, often in more than one edition, sometimes in Greek 
and Latin separately, together with many of the historians. There is also a 
smattering of Neo-Latin literature, and a few works of contemporary 
political interest. The list contains several bibliographical rarities and 
several works in the vernacular or in English translation.

No J. Frobenius is known as an author; perhaps the scribe mistook the 
printer's name for the author's on the book's title-page, or perhaps the item 
is one of Froben's various learned compilations (e.g., works by Seneca or 
Erasmus), which carried his name prominently on the title-page. See PLRE

Listed as one of a group of five items in uno volumine. The Sylvae were 
divided into "Manto," "Ambra," "Rusticus," and "Nutricia"; this entry may 
represent a separately-published section or a hasty scribal notation from the 
title-page of a complete edition. Language(s): Latin. 

67.34:1 plautus therentius 

Titus Maccius Plautus. Probably Comoediae. Continent: date indetermina-

Leonard Bruno, Aretino. Unidentified. Continent: date indeterminable. 

The balance of probability is difficult to determine between Leonardo 
Bruno Aretini's Epistolae familiares and his De bonis studiis epistola. Because 
of the presence of a good deal of Homer in Brown's collection, the Latin 
translation of the Batrachomyomachia by Carolus Marsuppini, under the title 
Epistola Karoli Aretini in vatrachomachiam (Venice, 1475?) is a remote 
possibility. Language(s): Latin.

No editions of Dionysius with Ausonius appear to be recorded. Most

David Tolley. Physician (M.A., B.M.): 
Probate Inventory. 1558 



KATY HOOPER 



David Tolley (Tablaeus, Talley, Taulaeus, Tavelegus, Tayley, Tolleius, Tolly, 
Towle, Towley, Toyley) was born c.1506 in Kingsbridge, Devon. He went up 
to St. Mary's Hall at Oxford, and took the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and 
Master of Arts, incepting as Master of Arts in February 1528. He then took 
the degree of Bachelor of Medicine, and was admitted to practice in 
February 1532. In June 1533 he supplicated for the Doctorate in Medicine. 

Tolley is recorded as a scholar of St. Mary's Hall in 1522 and 1534, and 
as a senior student (theologus) of Christ Church in 1549. He held the posts 
of Keeper of the Shelton and Warwick chest in 1528, Keeper of the Vienne 
chest 1531-33, and exorcist in 1534. 

Tolley had a reputation in his own time as a classical scholar and teacher 
of grammar in the University. His own works include Progymnasmata gram- 
matice Graece (written for the use of Edward, Prince of Wales, whose copy 
survives in the British Library at BL C.28.a.l4), Grammatica regia, Institutio- 
nes linguae graecae and Themata Homeri. (BRU02, 570-71 and Athenae 
Oxonienses, 1:195). 

Tolley's library has been taken to be much larger than the fifty titles re- 
corded here, by confusion with the inventory of William Brown, fellow of 
Merton, who also died in 1558, to which inventory it has, inexplicably, been 
stitched for many years. The transcript printed by Emden, as noted below, 
is a conflation of the two libraries. (For Brown's library, see PLRE 67.) The 
medical section of the library forms two-thirds of the whole and is dominat- 
ed by the writings of Galen, Hippocrates and Avicenna, the classic texts of 
the medical curriculum. The remainder is divided chiefly between theology 
and grammar. Horman's Vulgaria is the only book in the library definitely 
printed in England and in a language (English) other than Greek or Latin.

68.2 Epistole manardi 

Joannes Manardus. [Epistolae viedicinales]. Continent: 1521-1557. 

This commentary on Mesue appeared in several editions, with different 
titles, during the first half of the sixteenth century; it is possible but less 
likely that this entry represents the compendium published in Lyons in 
1556 under the title Epistolae medicinales {Wellcome no. 2050) in which 
Manardus is the first named author. Language(s): Latin Greek (perhaps). 
Appraised at 2s in 1558. 

68.3 dioscorides grece et Latine 

Dioscorides. De medica materia. Continent: 1529-1549. 

There is another entry for this text at 68.18, appraised at the lower sum 
of 14d; the rough draft of the inventory specifies in octavo for the later 
entry, which suggests that this entry may represent the folio edition printed 
in Cologne, 1529, by Joannes Soter, in the translation by Marcellus Vergili- 
us. Language(s): Greek Latin. Appraised at 2s 6d in 1558. 

68.4 opera ahesitii

Jacques Goupyl with Latin translation by Joannes Guinterius (Andernacus). 
Basle: per H. Petrum, 1556. 

The rough draft of the inventory adds "grece et latine," which narrows 
the possible editions to that printed in Basle in 1556, the tide-page of which 
prominently identifies the two languages. Language(s): Greek Latin. Ap- 
praised at 6d in 1558. 

68.14 Compendium fushii 

Leonard Fuchs. [Methodus, sen ratio compendiaria perveniendi ad medici- 
nam]. Continent: 1531-1550. 

Likely, one of the earlier editions, which begin: Compendiaria. . . . Lan- 
guage^): Latin. Appraised at 8d in 1558.

nent: c. 1516-1545. 

Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 6d in 1558. 

68.18 Dios co rides grece et latine 

Dioscorides. De medica materia. Continent: date indeterminable. 

The rough draft of the inventory adds "in 8"; there is another entry for

Appraised at 14d in 1558. 

68.19 Galenus de sanitate tuenda

1558. 

68.20 Chirurgia tagaltii 

Joannes Tagaultius. De chirurgia institutions Continent: 1543-1549. 
The work is also the leading item in Chirurgia, edited by Conrad Gesner 
(Zurich, 1555). Language(s): Latin. Appraised at lOd in 1558. 



David Tolley 41 

68.21 fushius in aphorismos Ipocratis 

Leonard Fuchs. In Hippocratis . . . septem Aphorismorum libris [sic] commen- 
taria. Translated by Leonard Fuchs, with his explanations of Galen's com- 
mentary on the text. Lyon: (different houses), 1558-1559. 

Conceivably, the edition of Hippocrates' work that first appeared in 1544 
with Fuchs's commentary, but the entry suggests this work. See 68.35 for 
the same text at the lower valuation of 4d. Language(s): Greek Latin. 
Appraised at 6d in 1558. 

68.22 Lexicon grece et Latine

1557. 

STC 10496 and non-STC. A Cambridge edition in 1521. Language(s): 
Latin. Appraised at 6d in 1558. 

68.24 Erasmus de tuenda valetudine 

Galen. De sanitate tuenda. Basle: (different houses), 1538 [colophon: 
1539]-1549. 

The rough draft of the inventory adds "grece." The Greek editions 
issued in Basle (see NLM6 no. 1925 and Adams G109) give the title in the 
entry's form (in Greek: Ilepl oyieiv&v pipAJcc £i;) rather than the more 
usual De sanitate tuenda. Probably Erasmus is a simple mistake, carried down 
from the preceding entry, although his own Encomium artis medicae did 
appear in 1525 in Paulus, Aegineta, Salubria de tuenda valetudine praecepta 
{Wellcome no. 4860). Another copy at 68.19. Language(s): Greek. Appraised

68.31 galenus de locis affectis 

Galen. De locis affectis. Continent: 1510-1557. 

There were numerous editions of Copus's Latin translation, and Fuchs's 
translation appeared 1549-1554, but the entry might alternatively represent 
either the 1540 or the 1554 Greek edition. Language(s): Latin (probable) 
Greek (perhaps). Appraised at 6d in 1558. 

68.32 Compendium patricii

Conceivably, the edition of Hippocrates' work that first appeared in 1544

Thomas Allen. Scholar (B.A.): 
Probate Inventory. 1561 

CHARLES A. HUTTAR 



Thomas Allen (Aleyn [BRU02], Alan, Alen, Alyn, Alyne) was admitted to the 
degree Bachelor of Arts in May 1522 and elected a Probationary Fellow of Bal- 
liol College in 1523 (BRU02, 5; further details in Boase, 118). He is named as 
"Mr Alyne of Baylie" in the inventory on decease made 17 October 1561. 

His library of some thirty-five volumes reflects a strong conservatism and 
suggests he would have been more comfortable during the reign of Queen 
Mary than in the final years of his tenure after the accession of Elizabeth I. 
About a third of his library is theology, in which, alongside older authorities 
such as Augustine and Lyra, he has a handful of contemporary works by 
such Catholic writers as the German Franciscan Franz Titelmann and the 
younger Englishman William Allen— possibly a relative— who would finally 
become a cardinal. They include works expounding and defending the doc- 
trines of Purgatory and of the Eucharist. The only Protestant writer is Stur- 
mius, and Allen's book by him is as likely to be a work on education or a 
commentary on an ancient text as a work of theological controversy. 

Classic texts make up another third of the collection. Standard school 
fare, they include two in Greek, a good deal more prose than poetry, pos- 
sibly one or two Erasmian editions, the faintly nonestablishment authors 
Lucretius and Lucian, and perhaps a slight stress on oratory with Demos- 
thenes and Livy's Condones. Supplementing these are Erasmus's handbook 
on copia, the old warhorse Perottus, and one or two newer rhetoric or 
grammar textbooks. 

One gets the impression that nearly all the humanist part of Allen's li- 
brary could have been in place very early in his academic career. Only the 
works in conservative theology are necessarily newer acquisitions. And the 
only "modern" tone in the collection comes from Erasmus's Colloquies, to- 
gether with its forerunner Lucian. His scientific books are standard texts 
composed at least two centuries before. 



46 __ PLRE 69 

Only one of Allen's books, an Oxford imprint, can be identified with any 
assurance as an STC volume. Nearly all are printed works. With one excep- 
tion, all are in Latin or Greek so far as can be determined. No individual 
appraisals are given.

69. 1 vi volumes of Sanct Augustine 

Augustine, Saint. Probably [Works]. Continent (probable): date(s) indeter- 
minable. 

Probably not STC books, but see STC 919 et seq. if a collection of six 
separately published titles. There was at least one edition of the Works in six 
volumes. Alternatively, these six volumes could be a fragment of any of 
several early sixteenth-century editions in seven to eleven volumes (e.g., 
Erasmus, 10 vols., 1529); or they might be separate titles; or they could be 
a ten-volume set bound in six. Language(s): Latin. 

69.2 plinie de historia animalium 

Pliny, the Elder. Probably part of Historia naturalis. Continent (probable): 
date indeterminable. 

Probably a printed book, but perhaps a manuscript. Books 8-12 of the 
thirty-seven books in Pliny's Natural History deal with the animal kingdom. 
No edition found contains only these sections. Language(s): Latin. 

69.3 halie de judiciis astrorum 

Ha\y t filiusAbenragel. De judiciis astrorum. Continent: date indeterminable. 
Language(s): Latin. 

69.4 lyra in quatuor evangelistas 

Nicolaus de Lyra. [Postilla]. (Bibte-N.T. -Gospels: commentary). Continent: 
1473-C.1485. 

In the manuscript entry, in is followed by an illegible character and the 
word mattheum, both deleted. In printed editions of this work the Incipit 
typically identified it as "super Matheum," delaying full identification until 
the Explicit, e.g., "Postilla Nicolai de lira super quatuor evangeliis cum 
Additionibus Pauli Burgensis episcopi et cum Replicationibus fratris Mathei 
do ring ordinis minorum" (BL: Mantua, 1477). Perhaps the text as well. Lan- 
guage(s): Latin. 



48 PLRE 69 

69.5 opus mathematicum 

Unidentified. Place unknown: stationer unknown, date indeterminable. 

STC/non-STC status unknown. Joannes Taisnier's Opus mathematicum is 
too late for this 1561 inventory if its 1562 date is accurate. Language(s): 
Latin (probable). 

69.6 lucrecius 

Titus Lucretius Carus. De return natura. Continent: date indeterminable. 
Language(s): Latin. 

69.7 alin de purgatorio 

William Allen, Cardinal. A defense and declaration of the catholike churchies 
[sic] dactrine, touching purgatory. Louvain (perhaps): c.1561 

Manuscript. Cardinal Allen's work on Purgatory (STC 371) was first pub- 
lished in Antwerp in 1565, too late for this inventory. In the Epistle, dated 
2 May 1565, however, Allen tells the reader that at a friend's request he had 
previously written a short explanation of the doctrine of Purgatory and 
prayers for the departed. The friend, Allen writes, made this "rude" com- 
position "common to many moe, then I woulde my selfe." Allen therefore 
decided, despite his "lacke of yeares" and his reluctance to provoke con- 
troversy that would keep him from other studies, to "make a more full dec- 
laration" of what he "had so briefly touched before" (fol. 2v). According to 
Nicholas Fitzherbert, Allen's biographer, the work was written in 1561 while 
Allen was in Louvain and made a considerable impact despite its being in 
English (see Southern 1950, 380). What is here inventoried, then, is neces- 
sarily the short version, in manuscript, which was later ("these late 
mounthes," Allen writes, fol. 5r) expanded for publication. Conceivably, 
William was related to Thomas, who was some thirty years his elder, al- 
though we know too little about the latter to do more than speculate. Such 
a connection would, however, help explain the appearance of the earlier 
manuscript form of this work in Thomas's library. The title was probably 
given in Latin for academic respectability (see BCI 1:322, entry 103). Lan- 
guage(s): English (probable). 

69.8 Catholicon Johannis Januensis 

Joannes Balbus (dejanua). Catholicon. Continent: 1460-1520. 
Language(s): Latin. 

69.9 a old boke sine nomine 

Unidentified. Place unknown: stationer unknown, date indeterminable. 
STC/non-STC status unknown. Language(s): Unknown. 

69.10 nicholis perratt 

Probably Nicolaus Perottus. Unidentified. Continent (probable): date in- 
determinable. 



Thomas Allen 49 

Probably not an STC book, but see STC 19767.3 et seq. Either his popu- 
lar Cornucopia or his often printed (once in London) Rudimenta grammatices. 
Manuscript entry has, between the two words, "pp" deleted. The hand- 
writing in the second word is abnormal. The word might be read as "per- 
vatt," a name unidentifiable except possibly as that of Nicole Prevost 
(Nicolaus Praepositi), author of Dispensarium ad aromatorios, which appeared 
in several Continental editions between c.1490 and 1538 (e.g., Adams 
N244). Language(s): Latin. 

69.11:1 Anthonius andreas de Spera mundi 

Antonius Andreae. Unidentified. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Taken to be a double entry since Antonius Andreae, whose philosophical 
works based on Aristotle were much read in early sixteenth-century Oxford, 
is not known to have interested himself in the Sphaera mundi of John Holy- 
wood (Joannes Sacrobosco), or of the De mundi sphaera of Oronce Fine. 
Conceivably bound with 69.11:2. Language(s): Latin (probable). 

69.11:2 [See 69.11:1] 

Unidentified. Continent (probable): date indeterminable. 

Either the work of John Holywood (Joannes Sacrobosco) or that of 
Oronce Fine is most likely intended here. Works by Diadochus Proclus and 
by Joannes Stoeffler are less likely possibilities. See the notes to 69.11:1, 
with which this may have been bound. Language(s): Latin (probable). 

69.12 officia Ciceronis 

Marcus Tullius Cicero. De officiis. Continent (probable): date indetermi- 
nable. 

Probably not an STC book, but see 5278 et seq. Commonly this work is 
the leading title in collections of Cicero's works. Language(s): Latin. 

69.13 Valerius maxim us 

Valerius Maximus. Facta et dicta memorabilia. Continent: date indetermi- 
nable. 

Language(s): Latin. 

69.14 despauterius 

Jean Despautere. Unidentified. Place unknown: stationer unknown, date 
indeterminable. 

STC/non-STC status unknown. STC lists twelve editions or issues of four 
different books by Despautere— nearly all published in Scotland. Adams 
D330-67 displays a wider range of titles and editions from Continental 
presses. His collected works appeared in 1537 (Adams D338) under the title 
Commentarii grammatici. Language(s): Latin. 



50 PLRE 69 

69.15 Johannes Sturm ius 

Joannes Sturmius. Unidentified. Continent (probable): date indetermina- 
ble. 

Probably a non^STC book, but see STC 23407. Sturmius was highly 
regarded as a classical scholar and as a writer on educational and theologi- 
cal matters. Only one work of his was published in England by the time of 
this inventory. Language(s): Latin. 

69.16 Comentaria Julii cesaris 

Caius Julius Caesar. Commentarii. Continent: date indeterminable. 
There is an English translation, STC 4337, within the period before 
1561. Language(s): Latin. 

69.17 titlemannus 

Franz Titelmann. Unidentified. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Besides commentaries on most of the New Testament and the poetical 
books of the Old Testament, Titelmann wrote devotional works on the 
Mass (1549) and on Christian doctrine (1555), as well as De considerations 
rerum naturalium (1530), a study of Aristotle's Dialectics (1543), controversial 
writings against Erasmus, and a variety of other works. Language(s): Latin. 

69.18 luciani dialogi grece et latine 

Lucian, of Samosata. [Dialogues-Selected]. Continent: date indeterminable. 
Conceivably the collected works. Language(s): Greek Latin. 

69.19 wyllin bergensis 

Unidentified. Continent (probable): date indeterminable. 

Almost certainly not an STC book, and perhaps a manuscript. Probably 
the Latini eloquii synonymorum collectanea or one of the philosophical 
writings of Hieronymus Wildenbergius. Alternatively, perhaps the Rerum 
Anglicarum of William, of Newburgh (Neubrigensis) or the Chirurgia of 
Wilhelm von Congeinna (Burgensis), neither of which was printed by the 
date of this inventory. Language(s): Latin (probable). 

69.20 antydodagma 

Antididagma sen Christianae et Catholicae religionis propugnatio. (Cologne 
Cathedral). Continent: 1544-1549. 

Said to be mainly the work of Johann Groepper. Language(s): Latin.

STC/non-STC status unknown. Ker (1971), p. 32, cites an unidentified 
Consilium utile super Eucharistia in a 1568 bequest of David Pole to All Souls 
College Library, and BCI (1:158 and 2:238) lists an unidentified Magnum et

Thomas Griffith. Scholar, perhaps Physician 
(MA, perhaps B.M.): Probate Inventory. 1562 

MARGERY H. SMITH, C.S.J. 



Of the Thomas Griffith, M.A., associated with the following book-list, all 
that is known is found in Alumni Oxonienses where he is described as having 
been a Fellow of Corpus Christi College (2:612). A contemporary of this 
Griffith, also Thomas Griffith, M.A., is cited in Alumni Oxonienses as having 
been a Fellow of Oriel College, supplicating in June 1562 for both the 
degree of Bachelor of Medicine and the "leave to practice" (2:612). The 
Corpus Christi Griffith is not mentioned by Fowler (1893), nor does he 
seem to make any appearance in the records of the College. Similarly, there 
is no evidence of the Oriel Griffith after his supplication for the medical 
degree. While the Fellows of Corpus Christi were, by and large, theologians, 
its statutes stated that one was to be "medicus deputatus" and allowed to 
study medicine, probably to provide treatment for the other members of 
the College. Fowler (1893, 372-73) extracted a list of these medicinae 
deputati from the College Register, a list he believed to be "tolerably 
complete" (372). Griffith's name is not listed. But people did move between 
colleges, and the physician Griffith had no fellowship to keep him at Oriel 
after June 1562. In light of the high proportion of medical texts in this 
collection, along with the paucity of theological works, it seems reasonable 
to consider the Oriel Thomas Griffith, probably a practicing physician after 
mid-1562, to have been the Thomas Griffith who owned the books listed 
below, whether he was the same as or different from the Corpus Christi 
Griffith cited separately in Alumni Oxonienses. 

Medical works constitute about a third of the collection, both the 
ancients (including Galen, Dioscorides, Hippocrates, Avicenna, and Rhazes) 
and more recent writers (including Leonard Fuchs, Joannes Argenterius, 
and Joannes Baptista Montanus). Theology is hardly represented, but the 
classics are, including works by Sophocles, Euripides, Xenophon, Cicero, 
Homer, Virgil, and, of course, Aristotle. Modern humanists are represented 
by Erasmus and Budaeus. Only one work in the list definitely came from an 



54 PLRE 70 

English press, John White's Diacosiomartyrion, and only about a half-dozen 
of the remaining could possibly have been printed in England.

Nicholas Sykes. Butler: Probate Inventory, 1562 

J. R. ROMANO 



Nicholas Sykes (Syckes), butler of Christ Church, enjoyed the "privileged" 
status in law accorded to college and university retainers and is among the 
handful of such privileged persons in sixteenth-century Oxford whose 
probate inventories contain books (Ker, 470 n. 3). While not formally an 
academic member of the college or university community, Sykes may, 
however, have been an unmatriculated student financing his way from his 
stipend as butler, a practice that was not unknown. 

For the most part, his books focus on the theological controversies of 
the Reformation and reflect both Roman Catholic and Protestant opinion. 
The spectrum of Protestant authors in Sykes's collection ranges from 
Lutheran positions to Calvinism, with various Swiss and German positions 
between, but does not extend to the more radical sorts of Protestant 
thought such as Anabaptism. Although neither a cleric nor a member of 
the university, Sykes's interest is not surprising for one who had just lived 
through the reign of Mary Tudor and the first years of the Elizabethan 
setdement in religion. 

Only five of the forty-two items in his inventory are definitely secular: 
two dictionaries, a Greek grammar, Quintus Curtius Rufus, and Cicero's De 
qfficiis. A sixth possibility is only conjecturally identified as a work by 
Claudius Claudianus. What was to be found in the "nomber of other smale 
bokes" that concludes the inventory remains a tantalizing, unanswered 
question.

1558-1560. 

Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 4s in 1562. 

71.4 Bible of Tygur 

The Bible. Zurich (probable): probably Christoph Froschouer, date inde- 
terminable. 

The publication information assumes that the entry is more likely a refer- 
ence to a Bible printed in Zurich than to the Biblical text called the "Zurich 
Bible" prepared originally in Zurich but published elsewhere as well. Lan- 
guage^): Latin. Appraised at 5s in 1562. 

71.5 Bible of Jerome 

The Bible. Britain or Continent: date indeterminable. 
STC 2055 and non-STC. STC 2055 (1535) is the only Vulgate Bible

Perhaps Alfonso de Castro. Unidentified. Continent: date indetermina- 
ble. 

Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 2s in 1562. 

71.7 Claudion 

Claudius Claudianus. Probably [Wor/w]. Continent: date indeterminable. 

One of the few non-theological works in this collection. In a theological 
context, it could be the more obscure Claudianus Mamertius. Language(s): 
Latin. Appraised at 2s in 1562. 

71.8 dictionarium Eliotti 

Sir Thomas Elyot. The dictionary ofsyr Thomas Elyot. London (probable):

Jean Calvin. Institutio Christianae religionis. Continent (probable): date in- 
determinable. 



Nicholas Sykes T\_ 

Probably not an STC book, but see STC 4414 et seq. If an English 
version, it must be the Thomas Norton translation published in 1561. Lan- 
guage^): Latin (probable) English (perhaps). Appraised at 3s in 1562.

Ambrogio Calepino. Dictionarium. Continent: 1502-1562. 

Vernacular languages possible.

71.11 Consiliorum Quatuor Gene' Ramus [Generalium] 

Concilia quatuor generalia. (Councils of the Church). Continent: date inde- 
terminable. 

The transactions of the first four councils of the Church were of great 
interest in Reformation controversy and editions of the transactions were 
printed on the Continent, notably at Paris, 1524 and 1535, and at Cologne 
in 1530. Gene* Ramus is surely a slip for "Generalium." Language(s): Latin. 
Appraised at 2s 6d in 1562.

1530-1561. 

Althamer (1498-1564) took the Protestant position, defending Luther in 
Berne in 1527 and 1528. Saint Augustine's work also very possible; see 
Adams A2175. If Althamer, this is a second copy; see 71.27. Language(s): 
Latin. Appraised at 16d in 1562.

work is represented. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 5s in 1562. 

71.16 Opera Cipriani 

Cyprian, Saint. [Works]. Continent: date indeterminable. 



72 PLRE 71 

The 1556 English translation probably would not be so entered. Lan- 
guage(s): Latin. Appraised at 2s in 1562. 

71.17 Perecius 

Martin Perez de Ayala, Archbishop of Valentia. Perhaps De divinis apostoli- 
cis atque ecclesiasticis traditionibus. Continent: 1549-1562. 

Perez de Ayala was a peritus at the Council of Trent. The most likely of 
his works to interest an Englishman would be this one. Language(s): Latin. 
Appraised at 20d in 1562. 

71.18 Confessio Polonica 

Probably Stanislaus Hozyusz, Cardinal. Confessio catholicae Jidei Christiana. 
Continent: 1551-1562. 

Hozyusz defended the Catholic position and was known as a "hammer" 
of heretics. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 22d in 1562. 

71.19 Contravertie Pigii 

Albertus Pighius. Controversiarum praecipuarum in comitiis Ratisponensibus 
tractatarum, explicatio. Continent: date indeterminable. 
Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 16d in 1562. 

71.20 Tabula Rerum Stephani 

Unidentified. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Certainly written and/or published by an Estienne, but the entry is too 
vague to specify. See, as two possibilities, Adams S1824 and S1801. Lan- 
guage(s): Latin Greek (perhaps). Appraised at 16s in 1562. 

71.21 Hosius contra Brechens' 

Stanislaus Hozyusz, Cardinal. Confutatio Prolegomenon Brentii. Verae, 
Christianae, catholicaeque doctrinae solida propugnation. Continent: date inde- 
terminable. 

Which of the several versions of Hozyusz's work this entry represents 
cannot be determined; its original title is given here. Language(s): Latin. 
Appraised at 16d in 1562. 

71.22 Epitomi Cronicorum 

Perhaps Achilles Gasser. Historiaruvi et chronicorum mundi epitome. Conti- 
nent: date indeterminable. 

Caspar Ursinus Velius's less widely published Epitome chronicarum (1533 
and 1534), a work based on Gasser's, is a less likely, but obvious possibility. 
Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 18d in 1562. 

71.23 Conciliacio Locorum 

Probably Seraphinus Cumiranus. Concilatio locorum communiun totius 
scripturae sacrae. Continent: 1555-1559. 

Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 12d in 1562. 



Nicholas Sykes 73 

71.24 Acta Romanoram 

Perhaps John Bale. Acta Romanoram pontificum. Continent: 1558-1560. 

Other identifications are of course possible, but given the theological 
and polemical bias of Sykes's books, this identification seems likely. Bale's 
work, however, is usually abbreviated as Acta pontificum (Shaaber B79ff.). 
Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 8d in 1562. 

71.25 Flores Bibliae 

Flores Bibliae. (Bible-Selections). Compiled by Thomas, Hibernicus. Conti- 
nent: 1555-1557. 

See Shaaber T29ff. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 14d in 1562.

Urbanus Regius. Probably Loci theologici e patribus et scholastici neotericis- 
que collecti. Frankfurt am Main: ex officina Petri Brubachii, 1545-1550. 

Probably not an STC book but see STC 20843. Language(s): Latin. Ap- 
praised at 12d in 1562. 

71.27 loci communes Althameri 

Andreas Althamer. Perhaps Concilatio locorum scripturae. Continent: 
1530-1561. 

Althamer is not known to have composed a loci communes although he 
did compose a Lutheran catechism, perhaps the first to use the question 
and answer format. While this work may be taken as his loci communes, the 
Concilatio seems more likely. The work went through more than a dozen 
editions by 1562. For what is perhaps a second copy, see 71.13. Language(s): 
Latin. Appraised at 3d in 1562. 

71.28 Homister 

Johann Hoffmeister. Unidentified. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Hoffmeister (c. 1509- 1547), general of the German Augustian friars, 
composed several Latin works in which he labored both to reform the 
corruptions in the Roman Catholic Church and to maintain that Church in 
Germany. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 12d in 1562. 

71.29 Exempla Virtutum 

Nicolaus Hanapus. Exempla sacrae scripturae. (The Bible). Continent: date 
indeterminable.

Henry Townrow. Scholar (B.A.): 
Probate Inventory. 1565 

CAROL ANNE VOGEL JONES 



Henry Townrow (Towneraw, Townerow, Townerowc) matriculated from 
Lincolnshire to Corpus Christi College, Oxford, on August 31, 1555 
(Fowler 1893, 387), but was granted a Bachelor of Arts degree on July 29, 
1557 from Brasenose College (Oxford Univ. 1909, 1:27). At the time of his 
death in 1565, he was listed as a "B.A. of Brasenose" {Alumni Oxonienses, 
1499). The inventory of his few goods is dated 29 October 1565. 

Townrow's academic career spanned the turbulent years at Oxford in 
which Mary Tudor reasserted conservative religious and scholastic values 
and in which Elizabeth's accession brought a resurgence of Reformation 
values and more humanistic reforms from the Continent. The book list 
reveals, on the whole, a standard selection of conservative undergraduate 
texts in rhetoric, logic, philosophy, theology, as well as Latin and Greek 
grammar, history, and literature, although three works by Erasmus stand 
out in a library of eighteen volumes.

Richard Cliff. Cleric (chaplain), Scholar (M.A.): 
Probate Inventory and Will. 1566 



DAVID PEARSON 



The biographical tale of Richard Cliff (Clef, Cleve, Clif, Clive, Clyf, Clyffe) 
is soon told, and depends almost entirely on the brief details given by 
Foster {Alumni Oxonienses 1:291); he proceeded B.A. on 24 July 1555, M.A. 
on 23 June 1560, became chaplain at Christ Church sometime before 1564, 
and died in 1566, when his will was proved at Oxford on 14 March. The 
University Register adds only the rather inconsequential scraps of informa- 
tion that he originally supplicated for BA. degree on 9 December 1553, 
and that he disputed twice on 14 October 1560 (Boase, 223). He does not 
surface in Wood's Athenae Oxonienses, or in any other of the standard bio- 
graphical sources. If we hazard a guess that he may have been twenty when he 
took his B.A., he cannot have been much over thirty when he died. 

The paucity of biographical information is unfortunate, as he appears to 
have had a personal library much larger than average for a fairly junior 
member of the University, especially for one who died so young. His total 
of 261 volumes, as recorded in the probate inventory and his will, 
considerably overshadows the collections of the thirteen other Oxford men 
who died in the 1560s whose book-lists are transcribed in this volume; only 
one of these extends beyond double figures (but see the collection of 
William Brown who died in 1558, PLRE 67, which totalled 242 items). 
Comparison with the Cambridge probate inventories reinforces this impres- 
sion of Cliffs library; none of the lists of the 1560s approach his in size, 
and the only contemporary Cambridge collection which is in the same 
league (indeed, in a rather higher one), is that of John Bateman (d.1559), 
running to over 400 books (BCI 1:234-244). Cliffs books formed the major 
portion of his estate; the individual valuations add up to £16 25 4rf, con- 
siderably more than the £4 \§s \\d at which the rest of his possessions were 
assessed. This "houshould stuffe" comprised the usual mixture of beds, 
linen, and odd pieces of furniture ("a baso[n]," "a coverd desk," "a 
cha[m]ber pot," "an habytt wt a hoode"); the last item on the list, "a bow 



Richard Cliff 81 

& viii arrows," presumably offers a glimpse of Cliffs recreational activities. 

The contents of the collection offer no great surprises. The entries on 
the inventory are brief and cursory, and identifications are often tentative 
at best. We can, however, be confident that most of Cliffs books were 
printed on the Continent, and they would have been variously dated 
between the end of the fifteenth century and the time of his death. There 
are a number of entries for books first printed in the 1560s, supporting the 
assumption that this was a growing collection accumulated throughout 
Cliffs academic career (see 73.12, 73.25, 73.36, 73.88, 73.130, 73.136, 
73.139, 73.142, 73.149, 73.216, and 73.243). 

The central importance of Aristotle in the sixteenth-century Oxford arts 
curriculum is reflected in the numerous Aristotelian texts recorded in the 
inventory (often unidentifiable beyond "una pars Aristotelis graecae," etc.) 
and in the commentaries on Aristode's works by de Mouchy, Dedicus, 
Faber, Stapulensis, Velcurio and others. The presence of texts like the 
Libellus sophistarum ad usum Oxoniensium shows that the late medieval 
traditions of Oxford sophistry survived into Cliffs generation despite 
reform of the curriculum earlier in the century. The church fathers are 
modesdy represented (a little Augustine, Cyprian, Cyril, St. John, Chrysos- 
tom, but not apparently Hilary, Jerome, or Tertullian) but not as well as the 
Reformers. There are commentaries, homilies, and other writings by 
Brentz, Bucer, Bullinger, Calvin (but only the Institutio Christianae religionis), 
Luther, Melanchthon, Musculus, Oecolampadius, Vermigli, Walther, and 
Zwingli. Contemporary English controversial writings do not surface in the 
list very often: Calfhill against Martial, Jewel against Harding, Nowell 
against Dorman. Cliff also had at least one copy of Jewel's Apologia, and of 
Cranmer's defense of the Protestant view of the sacraments {Defensio verae 
et catholicae doctrinae de sacramento). Erasmus is well represented in his 
collection, as are classical authors, both Latin and Greek: Caesar, Cicero, 
Florus, Horace, Ovid, Plautus, Quintilian, Terence, Valerius Maximus, 
Virgil; Euripides, Hesiod, Homer, Lucian, Sophocles, Thucydides. There is 
not much by way of medical or scientific texts, although there are a few 
standard mathematical works such as Euclid, Fine, and Sacrobosco. There 
is similarly little law, or geography. Cliff clearly had a reasonably wide 
linguistic command, as he had texts in Greek and Hebrew as well as English 
and Latin; he also had a copy of Sebastian Muenster's Dictionarium Chaldai- 
cum. 

Cliffs will (Oxford Chancellor's Register, Hyp.A.5; Reg. GG), made on 
19 January 1566, makes provision for a few specific books, for which see 
73.257-61. These books, and particularly the descriptions that accompany 
them in the will, leave little doubt about the strength of Cliffs puritan 
inclinations. The bulk of Cliffs library must have gone to his brothers

Except for one item (73.18), the whereabouts of Cliffs books today are 
unknown; inquiries at Christ Church have failed to identify others. Quite

possibly, Cliff did not mark his books in any way. His book list is the most 
substantial record of his existence that he bequeathed to posterity, and the 
only memorial he is likely to have. 

I would like to include here a sincere and grateful acknowledgment of 
the help and advice rendered by Elisabeth Leedham-Green in elucidating 
some of the more challenging entries in the list.

Because of the et at the end of the truncated entry, the item is assumed

One of the various collections with titles beginning Canones et decreta

John Bury. Scholar (probably B.A.): 
Probate Inventory. 1567 



ELLEN SUMMERS 



According to the Brasenose College Register, the will of John Bury (Bery, 
Berry, Burye, Byrry, Byrrye) was proved at Oxford in 1567 for probate. The 
same source tentatively identifies this John Bury, deceased in 1567, with a 
John Byrrye admitted to the college on 19 June 1555 and with ajohn Burye 
of Berkshire, listed as a member in 1556/7 (Oxford Univ. 1909, 1:26). No 
personal or biographical information is in the inventory itself, where the 
owner is referred to only as "Syr Burye," the title indicating, according to 
academical usage, a Bachelor of Arts. The owner of these books, residing 
in Brasenose College at the time of his death was likely, therefore, a John 
Bury, perhaps from Berkshire, who had been granted a degree of Bachelor 
of Arts, but probably was not, after these years, formally pursuing further 
studies. 

The appraised value of his books at fifteen shillings comprised nearly 
half the value of his estate (a flockbed, bolsters, a covering, a couple of 
frocks, a brush and a candlestick) and seems to indicate that his treasure 
was at least partly in his library. For the most part, the books are standard 
fare for an Oxford student, including the classics and grammars, but the 
presence of Doctor and student and a commentary on the Decretales suggests 
an interest in the law.

Robert Jones. Sexton: Probate Inventory. 1567 

ALAIN A. WIJFFELS 



The inventory which lists the books of "Roberte Jones Qohne, Johns, Jonys], 
one of the Sexteynes had in his Chambre," bears at its foot, in the hand of 
that one of its appraisers who sporadically attached valuations to some of 
its contents, the date 16 January 1556 (i.e., 1557). Jones's possession of 
Rastell's confutation of Jewel (75.21), published in 1564, precludes 
acceptance of this date. It is certain that the inventory is rather that of the 
Robert Jones, "one of the sextons of christs churche" whose will was 
proved in the Vice-Chancellor's Court on 17 January 1567: the overseer 
named in the will was Master Smith, master of the choristers, and the 
inventory makes mention of a "table with a payre of tressels in Master 
Smithes Chambre." More conclusively still, the record of probate notes the 
value of the goods inventoried as six pounds seventeen shillings and a 
penny, and this is, indeed, the sum somehow determined and noted at the 
foot of the inventory. 

Four possible Robert Joneses are found in BRU02 and Alumni 
Oxonienses among the graduates of the University. The first, who was 
admitted B.C.L. on 15 July 1520 and supplicated for the B.Cn.L. in October 
1527, is recorded as a secular chaplain subsequendy holding the livings of 
Lower Heyford, Oxfordshire, and of Eaton Bishop, Herefordshire (BRU02, 
321; Alumni Oxonienses 2:828). Another secular chaplain of the same name 
proceeded B.A. on 6 December 1541 and, perhaps, B.C.L. in the same year. 
Next in time is a Robert Jones of Holywell, a student residing in the town 
in July 1562, whose tutor was Philip Jonys of Oriel, and, finally, a Robert 
Jones is recorded as a chaplain of Christ Church in and before 1564. This 
last is almost certainly the man with whom we are here concerned, but 
whether or not he is to be identified with any of those previously named is 
not clear. 

His modest library suggests a man with some grounding in the law; he 
had an incomplete Corpus juris civilis (75.2-4) and a dictionary of the civil 



124 PLRE 75 

law (75.23), a fragment of canon law (75.5), two other texts of a more 
humanist bent (75.6 and 75.15) and the Institutions of the laws of England 
(75.16). Besides these he has the New Testament and liturgies essential to 
a working cleric (75.8 and 75.11-12), one of the basic texts of humanist 
theology (75.9), one recent work of Catholic polemic (75.21) and, finally, a 
number of elementary texts such as might have been serviceable to a friend 
(and assistant?) of the Master of the Choristers, including Elyot's dictionary 
(75.1), rhetorical texts of Erasmus (75.17-18), and works by Cicero (75.10 
and 75.14), Ovid (75.13) and Terence (75.22). It may be that Cato's Disticha 
(75.19:1) and Erasmus's Enchiridion militis Christiani (75.19:2), among 
several items struck out, were books belonging to the choir-school.

It is not certain that the entry refers to two separate volumes. The 
combination of the Authenticum and the Institutes occurred (together with 
other works) in the fifth and last volume of the Corpus juris civilis, the 
so-called Volumen parvum. Language(s): Latin Greek (perhaps). Appraised

The edit io princeps of Theophilus's translation of the Institutes into Greek 
is that of Fro ben (Basle, 1534); others appeared in Paris in the same year 
and in Louvain in 1536. The work was subsequently translated into Latin by 
Jacobus Curtius (Lyon, 1545) and a Latin edition is perhaps likelier here.

The original entry, clearly taken from the title-page, read, inconclusively, 
"Joan. Caesarii viri undecunque doctissimi." This is the form of words of 
numerous editions included in the above date range. All such editions also 
include the Murmellius work below (75.7:B). Language(s): Latin. Appraised

Perhaps Christoph Hegendorff. Dialecticae legalis libri quinque. Continent:

The identification is suggested on the basis of the precise form of the 
entry, but there are many other possibilities, among them Ulrichus Zasius, 
Rhetoricae ac dialecticae tractatio legalis (Antwerp, 1540); Petrus Andreas 
Gammarus (Gambarus), Dialectica legalis (Venice, 1533) and Joannes

great popularity of this work at the time and the absence of epitomes (see 
next) of such works as Joannes Oldendorp, De copia verborum et rerum injure 
civili. There are other elementary school texts among Jones's books. Not 
appraised. Language(s): Latin. 

75.18 an epitome of the same copia verborum

Bezzel, no. 798. Other abridged versions of Erasmus's De copia do not 
have the word "Epitome" in the title, and all other editions with this title

Richard Ludby. Cleric: Probate Inventory. 1567 

DALE B. BILLINGSLEY 



Richard Ludby (Ludbye) is not recorded as a graduate of the university. His 
priesdy status tells us litde of his academic standing; it is possible that he 
had only recently entered the university, a possibility enhanced by the large 
proportion of elementary arts texts among his books. 

Gloucester College was, during the early Reformation years, subject to 
constant fluctuations of fortune. Originally a hall belonging to the 
Benedictine Abbey of St. Peter, Gloucester, and housing monastic students 
at the University, the property (which lay outside the walls of the city) 
passed to lay landholders at the Dissolution, and then back and forth 
between them and the Bishop of Oxford until it passed into the possession 
of St. John's College in the 1570s. A 1559 survey of the property mentions 
"six litde lodgings . . . wherein doth lie two ould priestes that be penconers 
[i.e., pensioners]" (transcribed in Stevenson and Salter [1939], 433), one of 
whom might have been Ludby; he is not named as a member of the College 
in a 1560 affidavit (Stevenson and Salter 1939, 435-36). No other even 
inferential record of his Oxford life can be discovered. 

The modest library he collected is heavily weighted toward Latin rhetoric 
and poetics; two works on natural history, two Bibles, and a keyboard-music 
book complete the collection.

76.1 Tullis rethorique 

Marcus Tullius Cicero. [Selected works-Rhetorica}. Continent: date indeter- 
minable. 

Perhaps collected works on rhetoric published together, or as a volume 
in any of the many editions of the Opera available from 1498; it may 
indicate a copy of the spurious Ad Herennium (as early as 1470 from 
Venice) or the De inventione (as early as 1475 from Venice). Of these 
possibilities, the Ad Herennium is the most likely (Adams CI 674-87); the 
first English edition postdates Ludby (STC 5323.5). Langaage(s): Unknown. 
Appraised at lOd in 1567. 

76.2 Horatius cum commento 

Quintus Horatius Flaccus. Probably [Worfo]. Continent: date indetermi- 
nable. 

The presence of a commentary makes an edition of the Works most 
likely. See also 76.24. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 12d in 1567. 



Richard Ludby 131 

76.3 Virgilius 

Publius Virgilius Maro. Probably [ Works]. Britain or Continent: date inde- 
terminable. 

STC 24787 et seq. and non-STC. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 4d in 
1567. 

76.4 the historie of Styrpium 

Leonard Fuchs. De historia stirpium. Continent: 1542-1555. 
First published in Basle 1542, it appeared in at least seven Latin editions 
before 1567. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 4d in 1567. 

76.5 testamentum grece et latinum 

[Bible-N.T.]. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Given the specific identification of the two languages, possibly a copy of 
one of the many printings of Erasmus's edition of 1516. Language(s): Greek 
Latin. Appraised at 12d in 1567. 

76.6 Apothegmata Erasmi 

Desiderius Erasmus. Apophthegmata. Britain or Continent: date indetermi- 
nable. 

STC 10443 etseq. and non-STC. STC 10443, Udall's translation published 
by Grafton, was available from 1542. More likely here is one of the many 
Condnental Latin editions. Language(s): Latin (probable) English (perhaps). 
Appraised at 8d in 1567. 

76.7 Tullis officis 

Marcus Tullius Cicero. De officiis. Britain or Continent: date indetermina- 
ble. 

STC 5278 et seq. and non-STC. De officiis, arguably the most widely read 
of Cicero's works, often appeared first in collections, but the appraisal here 
indicates an edition of this work alone, which was available from 1465 on 
the Continent and from 1534 in an English edition. Language(s): Latin 
(probable) English (perhaps). Appraised at 2d in 1567. 

76.8 Gualterus de ratione carminum 

Rudolph Walther. De syllabarum et carminum libri duo. Continent: 1542- 
1567. 

STC 25011, the English edition of this title, was published in 1573. Lan- 
guage(s): Latin. Appraised at 3d in 1567. 

76.9 elucidarius Poeticus 

Hermann Torrendnus. [Elucidarius carminum]. Continent: date indeter- 
minable. 

This popular handbook to classical poetry, first published as early as 
1501, was published under various titles. The form given in this item 



132 plre 76 

appears from Cologne in 1536, and is recorded in Adams T822 (Antwerp, 
1546). Robert Estienne's less widely published dictionary, Dictionarium 
nominum propriorum, sometimes printed with the tide Elucidarius poeticus, 
may be intended. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 8d in 1567. 

76.10 Tullis epistoles cum commento 

Marcus Tullius Cicero. [Selected works-Epistolae]. Continent: date indeter- 
minable. 

Editions of the various collections, many with commentaries, were widely 
available from Continental presses. An edition of the single Epistola ad 
Quintum fratem is the first in English, STC 5306 (in English translation, 
1561); the many later editions postdate Ludby. Language(s): Latin. Ap- 
praised at 8d in 1567. 

76. 1 1 Valerius de rethorica 

Cornelius Valerius. In universam bene dicendi rationem tabula. Continent:

Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 2d in 1567. 

76.12 Amouldus de seremoniis 

Unidentified. Place unknown: stationer unknown, date indeterminable. 

STC/non-STC status unknown. Conceivably Arnoldus Merrmanius's 
work on the conduct of confession, printed with different titles. See Adams 
M1347-48. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 4d in 1567. 

76.13 a bible in parvo 

The Bible. Britain or Continent: date indeterminable. 

STC 2055 et seq. and non-STC. The appraiser emphasizes the unusual 
format, but the notation does not indicate either the language or the 
specific size. STC 2079.8 (Zurich) and STC 2080 (London) were printed in 
quarto English versions; an octavo is more likely (STC 2098.5), and a Latin 
version even more likely. Language(s): Latin English (perhaps). Appraised at 
12d in 1567.

76.15 Aulius persius cum commento 

Aulus Persius Flaccus. [Wor&s]. Continent: date indeterminable. 

This author was frequendy published with Juvenal, but here the entry 
suggests a single-author work, available with commentary from Continental 
presses from at least 1480. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 2d in 1567. 



Richard Ludby 133 

76.16 an epitome of Tullis epistles 

Marcus Tullius Cicero. [Selections-Epistolae]. Continent: date indetermina- 
ble. 

The title here effects a distinction between this item and 76.10, but the 
principal sources do not identify as an epitome any work published in the 
period. Adams C2000-2006 (1502-1566) are extracts and florilegia from 
the letters; C1990-93 (1542-1543) are commentaries and annotations 
separately published; one of these works may be intended by this entry. 
Language(s): Latin (probable). Appraised at 4d in 1567. 

76.17 Oratio pro milone 

Marcus Tullius Cicero. Pro Milone. Britain or Continent: date indetermi- 
nable. 

STC 5312 and non-STC. The earliest Continental edition in BL is 
Bologna, 1472; STC 5312 was printed at Oxford by Theodoric Rood, 1483. 
Language(s): Latin. Appraised at Id in 1567. 

76.18 Salustius 

Caius Sallustius Crispus. [Worfes]. Continent (probable): date indetermi- 
nable. 

Probably not an STC book, but see STC 21626-27. Collections and 
individual works, one of the latter being suggested by this appraisal, were 
published on the Continent from at least 1470. Latin editions printed in 
England postdate Ludby, but Pynson prints an English Cataline zndjugurtha 
in 1520 (STC 21626) and the latter with Latin facing-text in 1525 (STC 
21627). Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 2d in 1567. 

76.19 Ovidius de tristibus 

Publius Ovidius Naso. Tristia. Continent: date indeterminable. 

The earliest English edition, STC 18976.4, postdates Ludby. BL lists 
eight Continental editions, 1499-1552. Language(s): Unknown. Appraised at 
Id in 1567. 

76.20 paper bookes

76.21 A virginall booke

Probably not an STC book, perhaps a manuscript. The first printed book

Disappointingly little is known of James Johnson who, at his death, was 
Chaplain of New College, Oxford. His inventory is similarly discreet with 
only three named items: works by Melanchthon, Cicero, Erasmus, along

John Shoesmith. Profession unknown: 
Probate Inventory. 1568 



ELLEN SUMMERS 



Although the library of John Shoesmith (Susmythe) inventoried after his 
death in St. Mary's parish, Oxford, consisted almost entirely of religious 
works, several with a particularly pious bent, he was likely not a cleric, nor 
a student. His collection has not a single, standard academic book. Further, 
no scholar's library at this date would be entirely in the vernacular as his 
appears to be. He can be traced in none of the standard lists of University 
students and fellows. 

Shoesmith seems likely to have been a reasonably prosperous person; his 
New Testament was appraised at 3 shillings and his Bible— perhaps an 
edition of the Great Bible— was valued at over 13 shillings. His inclinations 
were strongly Protestant: see the devotional works at 78.5 and 78.6 and the 
cryptic entry (78.10) listing a "boke agaynst the usurped poore [power] of 
the bishoppe of rorae" which, in its polemical anti-papal tone, is definitely 
Protestant, if not clearly pious. On the basis of this book-list, John 
Shoesmith seems to have been moderately prosperous, moderately devout, 
and ardently Protestant.

Richard Allen. Scholar (B.A.): 
Probate Inventory. 1569 



GRADY A. SMITH 



Two Richard Aliens (Alen, Allein, Alynne) graduated B.A. from Corpus 
Christi College at about this time, one in 1548 and one in 1566; yet another 
graduated from an unspecified college in 1561 {Alumni Oxonienses 1:17). 
The earliest of these three men, Fellow of the College from 1546, was 
confined to the Fleet with the then Master, on suspicion of popery in the 
reign of Edward VI (Fowler 1893, 97). He is said to have been restored to 
his Fellowship shordy afterwards, but his subsequent career is not recorded. 
Of the B.A. of 1561 nothing whatever is known. The youngest of these 
Richard Aliens entered Corpus Christi College 20 July 1561 from Lin- 
colnshire, aged thirteen years, ten months, during the tenure of Gulielmus 
Butcher (or Boucher or Bocher). He was granted the status of probationer 
Fellow in 1566, the year of his graduation (Fowler 1893, 388; McConica, 
704). Alumni Oxonienses gives 1567 as the year of his death; McConica (704- 
5) gives 1569. (At first glance, a reading of the manuscript seems to favor 
1567, but a reading of 1569 is supported by the appearance of other 
open-topped 9s written elsewhere by the compiler, Henry Crosse.) Regrettably, 
the appraisers in drawing up this inventory left an incomplete statement of the 
status of the deceased: "bachiler of — ." If the deceased was indeed a 
Bachelor of Arts only, then this last Richard Allen is the likeliest candidate; it 
is unlikely that either of the other two would have lingered in the University 
without at least proceeding M.A. although the B.A. of 1561 might have 
been on the point of so proceeding. If, however, he was a Bachelor of 
Theology, then the first Richard Allen must be taken into consideration. In 
the absence of further biographical discoveries, the balance of probability 
lies with the B.A. of 1566, especially if the date of the inventory is 1569 
(which date is virtually confirmed by the appearance of at least two items in 
the book-list with 1568 publication dates: 79.19 and 79.32). 

The books listed constitute an unusually substantial collection for one 
who had but lately determined; the subject matter also seems to denote a 



Richard Allen 141 

student of theology rather than of arts, although with a scattering of 
classical histories and literary works, arts textbooks are by no means absent. 
At first glance, the emphasis on Protestant polemic would seem to fit ill 
with a quondam recusant (the 1548 B.A.), but it is important to recall the 
frequent use made, especially of those under threat of persecution, of the 
works of their adversaries where they could read, legitimately, the opinions 
of those with whom they secretly agreed. The library shows not only that 
Allen was familiar with Greek, but that he had begun cultivating an 
acquaintance with Hebrew. See McConica (704-5) for his comments on 
Allen's library.

Agathias), some in Greek and others in Latin. Language(s): Greek Latin.

STC/non^STC status unknown. It is impossible to fix the precise title 
because of the number of separate works by Vermigli on the eucharist (a 
Tractatio, a Defensio, and a Disputatio or two), and the proliferation of 
variants, both British and Continental, before Allen's death. See STC 24673

John Conner, Cleric, Scholar (B.Th.): 
Probate Inventory, 1569 

j. s. CRAIG 



John Conner (Canner, Cunnar, Cunner) was chaplain and fellow of Exeter 
College, Oxford from 1523 until 1549. A chorister of Magdalen College, 
Oxford in 1501, he was admitted to the degree of Bachelor in Arts in 
October 1510, proceeded M.A. in 1513, and successfully supplicated for the 
degree of Bachelor in Theology in October 1524. While a fellow of Exeter 
College, he held the living of Little Wittenham, Berkshire, from 1531 until 
at least 1553, and from October 1558 until his death in March 1569, served 
as vicar of St. Peter's in the East, Oxford (BRU02, 133). 

An inventory of Conner's possessions, which included a list of forty-five 
book titles, was taken on 3 December 1569. The predominance of theologi- 
cal works is not surprising. His small library possessed a distinctively conser- 
vative flavor with works by Fisher, Pepin, and Aquinas and a relative 
absence of reformed texts. It is interesting to note the number of collec- 
tions of sermons which were presumably used as the basis for his own col- 
legial or parochial duties.

George and Simon Digby. Scholars (students): 
Inventory. 1569 

JULIETTE M. CUNICO 



All that can be discovered about George and Simon Digby, probably 
brothers, is in the inventory of their "goodes and bokes" compiled on 4 
November 1569, where they are described as "late scollars in Glocester 
haule in Oxforde." The inventory was taken at the commandment of 
Thomas Cooper, Vice-Chancellor of the University (BRU02, 135-36), prob- 
ably against debts left unpaid on their leaving Oxford. Their departure can 
only be speculated upon, but Gloucester Hall was "greatly suspected" of 
recusancy during this period (Loach 1986, 381) and conceivably the Digbys 
left, apparently abruptly, as recusants seeking surroundings more congenial 
than Oxford. 

What they left behind of their collection, however, does not suggest any 
such Roman Catholic inclination. Rhetoric, history, philosophy, literature 
and law comprise the majority of the volumes. Standard student texts are 
also well represented. Jacopo di Porcia's De re milUari in its English transla- 
tion {The preceptes ofwarre) makes an unusual appearance (81.46). Of the 
forty-six titles in their collection, most are in Latin, with several in Greek 
and a few in English. The books are not appraised.

William Napper. Scholar (B.A.): 
Probate Inventory. 1569 

DAVID C. MCPHERSON 



William Napper was born in Hampshire about 1544 (McConica, 705). At 
Brasenose he matriculated about 1562, received his B.A., 1565, and 
supplicated for his MA., 1568 {Alumni Oxonienses, 3:1052). Admitted to 
Corpus Christi as a probationer fellow, 1568/69 (McConica, 705), he died 
there after a few months. The probate inventory from which the list of 
books below is taken is dated 1 June 1569. 

McConica compares Napper's library with that of one Richard Allen (see 
PLRE 79), also a recent Bachelor of Arts, concluding that Napper's has an 
"altogether more humanisdc, less theological cast" (705). Nevertheless, 
Napper owned a considerable number of theological works himself, a 
group of books accounting for about a fourth of his collection.

edition, the book was probably printed on the Continent. Language(s): 
Latin. Appraised at 2s 6d in 1569.

82.6 Calepinus 

Ambrogio Calepino. Dictionarium. Continent: 1502-1569. 

By this date, several editions included vernacular languages. Napper 
owned another copy of Calepino, perhaps with a somewhat different set of 
languages included; see 82.117 below. Language(s): Greek Latin. Appraised 
at 20d in 1569.

82.12 Officia Ciceronis 

Marcus Tullius Cicero. De qfficiis. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Since Napper owned a Latin-English edition (see 82.67 below), surely this 
entry refers to a Latin only edition printed on the Continent. See also 82.50 
below, which is yet another copy of De officiis. Conceivably Selected Works 
with De qfficiis leading. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 6d in 1569. 

82.13 historia Ecclesiastica

Probably Desiderius Erasmus. De ratione studii. Continent: date indeter- 
minable. 

Often published with other works. Several educational works printed 
prior to 1569 bear this tide, but since Napper owned three other works by 
Erasmus, it seems probable Erasmus's is the one meant. Another good 
candidate, however, is the collection of writings on this subject by various 
authors which was published at Basle, 1541. Conceivably Andreas Gerardus, 
Hyperius. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 14d in 1569.

Latin. Appraised at 8d in 1569. 

82.50 officia Ciceronis 

Marcus Tullius Cicero. De officiis. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Since Napper owned a Latin-English edition (see 82.67 below), surely this 
entry refers to a Latin edition printed on the Continent. He owned yet 
another copy of De officiis (see 82.12 above); that copy or this may very well be 
an edition of Selected works with De officiis leading. The multiple copies may 
also indicate teaching texts. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 4d in 1569. 

82.51 the bishoppe of Winchester 

Perhaps A copie of a letter sente unto Stephen [Gardiner] bysshoppe of Winches- 
ter. (England-Privy Council). London: In aed. J. Cawodi, 1554. 

STC 7753.8. This work orders public thanksgiving for the (erroneously 
diagnosed) pregnancy of Queen Mary. But this entry could also refer to any 
of several works by Stephen Gardiner, Bishop of Winchester and Lord Chan- 
cellor, or to works by other Bishops of Winchester. See, e.g., STC 13818.

82.55 elucidarius poeticus 

Probably Hermann Torrentinus. [Elucidarius carminum]. Continent: date 
indeterminable. 

This widely published and often issued encylopedic work is considered 
more likely than either the work of Robert Estienne (Adams SI 81 5) or that 
of Johann Gast, each of which carries the same tide; Gast's was designed to 
be used as a school text. The two must, however, remain possibilities, 
especially since Gast is represented elsewhere in Napper's library (82.15).

82.72 Justinus 

Trogus Pompeius and Justinus, the Historian. [Epitomae in Trogi Pompeii

Probably not an STC book, but see STC 24290. Goldyng's translation of 
this work was published in 1564 (STC 24290), but the entry probably refers 
to a Continental edition. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 4d in 1569.

Aphthonius, Sophista. Progymnasmata. Continent (probable): date indeter-

William Napper 185 

Probably not an STC book, but see STC 699. The only edition in the 
STC that could be in Napper's collection (STC 699, c.1520) is titled Prae- 
exercitamenta, different from the entry. Napper owned another copy of 
Aphthonius, though perhaps in a different edition; see 82.109 below. Lan-

82.82 Salustius 

Caius Sallustius Crispus. Probably [Works], Britain or Condnent: date in-

STC 21622.2 and non-STC. In 1569 Thomas Marsh published a Latin 
edition of Sallust's Works, but this is so close to the date of the probate 
inventory that in all likelihood the entry refers to a Continental edition. 
Conceivably, the English translation of De bello Jugurthino (STC 21626, 
c.1520) could be intended. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 2d in 1569.

82.87 Rodolphus Agricola 

Rodolphus Agricola. Probably De inventione dialectica. Continent: date in-

De inventione was Agricola's most frequently reprinted work, and its 
subject (logic) is one in which Napper— judging from the other books in his 
library— was very interested. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 4d in 1569. 

82.88 Dyalectica g*r*cii 

Unidentified. Place unknown: stationer unknown, date indeterminable. 

STC/non-STC status unknown. The blotted word may be grucii for 
Nicolaus Gruchius, author of Disputatio de nomine dialectices (Paris: 1552, 
1558, and 1559). See 82.43 for a work definitely by Gruchius. Language(s):

Sebastiano FoxMorzillo. Probably Ethices philosophise compendium. Conti-

PRIVATE LIBRARIES IN 
RENAISSANCE ENGLAND

John Atkinson. Scholar (M.A.): 
Probate Inventory. 1570 

JULIETTE M. CUNIGO 



John Atkinson's library seems rather small for a person of his standing. A 
Fellow of Balliol, he received his B.A. on 6 July 1560 and the M.A. on 16 
December 1564. He died in 1570, and the inventory prepared for probate, 
from which the book-list below is taken, is dated 7 November of that year 
{Alumni Oxoniensis 1:41). 

There is some evidence that Atkinson was sympathetic to the papist 
cause in that he was at pains to list at the back of the College Register in 
1568 the names of those benefactors for whom, under the old order, 
exequies would have been performed. But he then, apparendy for the sake 
of his own security, scored through the list with the lightest of possible 
strokes (Jones 1988, 75). Atkinson's collection demonstrates interests in 
dramatic literature and in theology as well as in history— the study for which 
his college is known. At the end of the inventory is listed "the kynges 
armes," which is taken to be a scroll or heraldic roll and not a book, even 
though it is listed with books. 

Oxford University Archives, Bodleian Library: Hyp.B.10.

Thomas Day. Cleric, Scholar (B.C.L.): 
Probate Inventory. 1570 



E.S. LEEDHAM-GREEN 



Thomas Day (Daye, Dey) first appears in the Oxford records on his 
admission as a Fellow of All Souls in 1518. He was admitted B.C.L. in July 
1521 and remained at All Souls for a further twenty years serving as law 
bursar (1526-28, 1533-35), law dean (1536) and subwarden (1540-41). At 
this point his career accelerated in the ecclesiastical sphere. He had been 
deaconed in 1532, but was not priested until 1542 in which year he was 
appointed to a canonry and prebend of Oseney which he held until its 
dissolution in May 1545. In November of the next year these offices were 
transferred, with the see, to Christ Church where, in spite of his alleged af- 
faire with the wife of Thomas Cooper, later Bishop successively of Lincoln 
and Winchester (for whom see Athenae Oxoniensis 1:610), he held them until 
his death. From 1548 he was also precentor of Chichester (where, by no 
coincidence, his brother George had been bishop since 1543 [Athenae 
Oxoniensis 2:242]) and prebendary of Oving as well as holding two other 
livings in Sussex (BRU02, 165). Thomas Day has been tentatively identified 
by Emden (BRU02, 165) with the "Mr Dee" or "Deyus" recorded by John 
Foxe as having been one of those who conducted the interrogation of John 
Philpot prior to his death at the stake in 1555. 

If this is the Thomas Day with whose inventory we are here concerned, 
the chief item of note in this comfortably successful career is its length. He 
must have been between eighty and ninety at the time of his death. But 
when, exactly did he die? His holograph will, proved in the Prerogative 
Court of Canterbury (Public Record Office, Prob. 11/52; registered at PCC: 
Lyon 15) is clearly dated "6 July 1569" and was proved before Walter Had- 
don, as the will of Thomas Day "priest and prebend of Christ Church" on 
2 May 1570. It requests burial in Christ Church cathedral to which he 
leaves "18 bookes of doctors upon the cannon & civile law which bookes 
stande first against the dore, in my littell studie above" (84.1-18?). He also 
leaves ten pounds to All Souls and "my fyve bookes of the texte of the 



Thomas Day 197 

civile lawe, that is to saie the Codex, the three bookes of the digestes and 
the autentikes [85:29-32?], that some yonge man there that laiketh may 
have the use of them and to leave them to an other at his departeinge after 
the discrition of warden." There are minor bequests to the poor in 
Newport, Shropshire (perhaps his birthplace), in his various livings in 
Sussex, and in Oxford. 

The inventory tallies well, in that it supplies admirably the "18 bookes of 
doctors upon the cannon 8c civile law" and, indeed, in its division between 
the old legal texts, so relegated to the attic, and the later divinity texts. It is, 
however, apparently dated "1 March 1567," that is, 1568, new style. 
Effortless superiority is all very well and good, but it is not to be looked for 
that even a canon of Christ Church should make his will when he had been 
buried for over two years. Dr. Mark Curthoys has kindly assured me that 
the records of Christ Church show but one canon of these names and 
dates, and that he was clearly alive in December 1569, where he appears in 
the annual list of the foundation in the Chapter Book. No list survives from 
1570, and he is absent from those of 1571 onwards. The precentorship of 
Chichester, vacant by his death, is recorded as having been filled on 9 
March 1570 (Calendar of Patent Rolls. Elizabeth I (1569-1572) 1966, item 30, 
p. 4). The most economical, and certainly the most plausible solution, is to 
assume that the inventory date should in fact be read as "1 March 1569," 
that is, 1570, new style. Even this solution, however, leaves one problem 
outstanding: according to BRU02 (165) and to the revised Fasti for Chi- 
chester (le Neve 1971, 10), Thomas Day was buried in Christ Church on 22 
February 1568. The immediate source for this statement appears to be 
Browne Willis (1730, 451), who in turn probably took the date from 
Wood's Fasti (Athenae Oxoniensis 5 [Fasti]:59), but his source I have been 
unable to trace. There is no memorial to Day and no register of burials 
preserved in the Christ Church muniments. The date originally entered at 
the head of Day's inventory was 22 February, and it seems possible that 
either Wood or his source took this date as the date of Day's burial and 
that the year was derived also from a misreading of the ambiguous final 
digit of the year as there entered. 

The list of Day's books given in BRU02 (718-19) totals 137 items, not 
thirteen as stated in the text (165).

Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 16d in 1570. 

84.22 Libri duo de Judiciis quibus principium deest 

Unidentified. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Almost certainly a book of legal judgments. The loss of the beginning of 
the book clearly prevented the appraiser from identifying it precisely. Lan- 
guage^): Latin. Appraised at 12d in 1570. 

84.23 Prima pars Solemnis repertorii per Joh: Bertachinum 

Giovanni Bertachini. Repertorium pars prima. Continent: date indetermi- 
nable. 

See also 84.24 and 84.25; none of these three volumes bears an ap- 
praised value. There were many editions, from 1539 usually in four or two 
parts. Language(s): Latin.

84.27:1-3 Tria volumina quae intitulatur Rubricae 

Unidentified. Continent (probable): dates indeterminable. 

Perhaps manuscripts. Either a set of early printed books without distinct 
tide-pages or, more probably, a set of manuscripts. Possibly, from the hint 
of a table of contents, and in this context, a commentary on the Decretum or 
Decretales. Another possibility is the anonymous Rubricae juris civilis et 
canonici published several times from before 1484 to after 1505, presumably 
multiple copies since no three-volume edition seems to be recorded. Lan- 
guage(s): Latin. Appraised at 2s in 1570. 

84.28 volu: [volumen] cum casibus Bartoli et Angeli 

Bartolus, de Saxoferrato and Angelus de Gambellionibus, Aretinus. Uniden- 
tified. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Either a general compilation of Casus, or two works bound together, or 
perhaps the Tractatus de malejiciis of Gambellionibus and the Tractatus 
judiciorum of Bartolus issued together by Antonius de Carcano and Jacobus 
de Sancto Petro at Pavia in 1477. Not appraised. Language(s): Latin.

84.30 Justinianus Imperator Jurisperitus 

Justinian I. Unidentified. (Corpus juris civilis). Continent: date indetermi-

In the absence of an appraised value, it is impossible to conjecture what 
part or parts of the Corpus are here intended. Language(s): Latin. 

84.31 Inforciatum Bernardini 

Justinian I. Infortiatum. (Corpus juris civilis). Edited by Guido. Venice: per 
Bernardinum [Stagninum] de Tridino, 1495 (1496?).

Not appraised. Language(s): Latin. 

84.34 volumen quod intitulatur decretum 

Gratianus, the Canonist. Decretum. (Corpus juris canonici). Continent: date 
indeterminable. 

The entry seems to indicate an unfamiliarity on the part of the appraiser 
with legal texts, and it may have been this unfamiliarity which led him to 
leave so many of the legal texts with no appraised value. Language(s): Latin. 

84.35 Decretales Gregorii noni 

Gregory IX, Pope. Decretales. (Corpus juris canonici). Continent: date inde- 
terminable. 

See 84.26. Not appraised. Language(s): Latin. 

84.36 Tomus 3 us omnium consiliorum 

Concilia omnia tarn generalis quam particularia. (Councils of the Church). 
Edited by Petrus Crabbe. Cologne: (different houses), 1551-1567. 

No edition earlier than these two (Adams C2770 and C2772) seems to 
have run to more than two volumes. This is the first book to be listed in 
this inventory which could not have been printed in or very near the incun- 
able period. From this point appraised values are entered with more 
regularity. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 3s 4d in 1570. 

84.37 hieronymi opera in tribus volu minibus 

Jerome, Saint. [Works]. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Editions of Jerome's Opera were commonly issued in nine volumes, but

25s in 1570. 

84.38 originis duobus voluminibus 

Origen. Probably [VTorfa]. Continent: date indeterminable. 

It was mostly the later editions which were issued in two volumes, but 
this could have been one of the earlier, four volume, editions bound as two. 
Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 10s in 1570. 

84.39 Chrysostomi in tjuatuor voluminibus 

John, Chrysostom, Saint. Probably [Wo?V«]. Continent: date indetermi-

84.43:1 Ignatius et philo Judeus uno volumine 

Ignatius, Saint, Bishop ofAntioch. Probably [Epistolae]. Continent: date in- 
determinable. 

The editio princeps of Jacobus Faber, Stapulensis of 1498 was followed by 
numerous others, some in the original Greek, some in Latin and some with 
parallel texts. Various editions contain letters by others, including Polycarp 
and Martial. Bound with 84.43:2. Language(s): Latin (probable) Greek (per- 
haps). Appraised with one other at 4s in 1570. 

84.43:2 [See 84.43:1]

praised with one other at 4s in 1570. 

84.44 Biblia cum annotationibus hebraicis 

The Bible. Continent: date indeterminable. 

Sanctes Pagninus's translation of the whole Bible with Hebrew annotations 
is perhaps the likeliest candidate here, but the entry may rather represent an 
edition of the Old Testament only, either by Sebastian Muenster or Leo Juda. 
Language(s): Hebrew Latin. Appraised at 16s in 1570.

208 PLRE 84 

Probably the commentaries on the Gospels in the first volume, and those 
on the Acts and the Epistles in the second, but we cannot be certain that all 
three constituents were in fact present. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 20d 
in 1570. 

84.47 Tomus tertius Chrystomi [Chrysostomi] in epistolas Pauli 

John, Chrysostom, Saint. [Epistles-Paul: commentary and text (part)]. (Bible-

Language(s): Greek (perhaps) Latin (perhaps). Appraised at 2s 6d in 
1570. 

84.48 Index super quinque Tomus [Tomos] operum Chrysostomi 

John, Chrysostom, Saint. [Works (index only)]. Continent: date indetermi- 
nable. 

There were various five-volume editions of Chrysostom's Opera between 
1522 and 1558 which included a separate index, usually bound with the 
first or the last volume but here, apparently, free-standing. Language(s): 
Latin. Appraised at 20d in 1570. 

84.49 Tomus tertius Bedae in Epistolas Pauli 

Beda, the Venerable. Tomus tertius in Epistolas divi Pauli Apostoli. Paris:

cius beginning in 1521. Language(s): Latin. Appraised at 3s 4d in 1570. 

84.50: 1 Erasmi annotationes in novum Testamen. 3bus voluminibus 

Desiderius Erasmus. [New Testament: commentary]. Continent: date inde- 
terminable. 

The entry poses various problems: no three-volume edition of Erasmus's 
In Novum Testamentum annotationes is recorded; nor yet is a three-volume 
edition of his New Testament. If, on the other hand, three volumes of the 
Paraphrases are here intended, their price seems high compared with 
84.53:1-4 below. See also 84.52 and 84.59-60. Language(s): Greek Hebrew 
Latin. Appraised with two others at 10s in 1570.

tolis 4or voluminibus 

Desiderius Erasmus. [Matthew: paraphrase]. (Bible-N.T). Continent: 1520- 
1557. 

In this context, perhaps a set (the first appearing in 1524), lacking St. 
Mark and Acts rather than individual volumes. (The Paraphrases on various- 
ly selected Epistles were usually issued separately.) See also 84.50:1-3, 
84.53:2-4, and 84.59-60. Language(s): Latin. Appraised with three others at

84.54 Adagia Erasmus 

Desiderius Erasmus. Adagia. Continent (probable): date indeterminable. 
Probably not an STC book. It is impossible to tell how copious a collec- 
tion of the Adagia is here indicated: the price seems high for an Epitome but 



210 PLRE 84 

low for, say, the Chiliades. Selections from the Adagia in English were 
published from 1539, but it seems likely that the compiler would have 
indicated as much were one of these intended here. Language(s): Latin 
(probable). Appraised at 20d in 1570. 

84.55 Novum Testamentum per eundem translatum 

[Bible-N.T.]. Translated by Desiderius Erasmus. Continent: 1516-1570.

84.56 Enchiridion militis Christian! 

Desiderius Erasmus. Enchiridion militis Christiani. Continent (probable): 
1504-1563. 

Probably not an STC book. Editions in English were frequent after 1533, 
but the context favors a Latin version. See also 84.57. Language(s): Latin 
(probable). Appraised at 14d in 1570. 

84.57 Alteram enchiridion

Probably manuscripts. Emden (BRU02, 718) reads this as "Duo (libri)

John DunneL Scholar (student): 
Probate Inventory. 1570 

JOCELYN SHEPPARD 



John Dunnet (Dannet, Donat, Dunnat), a student at University College, 
Oxford, died in 1570. The name Dunnet and its many variations can be 
traced to the northeast coast of Scodand where Dunnet Hill, Dunnet Head, 
and Dunnet are located. Scottish church records reveal that in the late 
1570s and early 1580s a John Donat served as rector of the church at 
nearby Canisbay (Innes 1855, 2:789). This possible family connection, the 
number of religious texts owned by Dunnet, and the fact that University 
College was known primarily for its theological instruction, suggest that 
Dunnet may have intended to take orders. McConica (707, n. 7) includes 
Dunnet in a list of young men whose inventories, taken together, tell 
something about what works were commonly used as textbooks by Oxford 
students.

Lisle, Scholar (student): Inventory. 1570 
j. s. CRAIG 



Lisle (given name unknown) was a scholar of Oriel College, Oxford when 
an inventory was taken of his goods in 1570, the purpose of which remains 
unknown. The preface to the inventory reads: "An inventorie of such stuffe 
as was left in the handes of Gawynge Stangar by the commandement of Mr 
Doctor Cooper, commissarie" (Thomas Cooper, BRU02, 135-36). 

His small collection of books was typical of a student, including works of 
grammar, Justinian's Institutes, Cicero and the ubiquitous fables of Aesop. 

Oxford University Archives, Bodleian Library, Chancellor's Court Papers, 1570.

PLRE Cumulative Catalogue 



In the following lists, entry refers to a single entry made by a compiler of a 
manuscript book-list; record refers to a single record created from an entry 
by an editor. An entry may contain more than one record; conversely, a record 
may constitute only part of an entry. A record always represents at least one 
book but may represent more, including a volume set. 

I. PLRE Database Totals 

Book-lists: 116; Entries: 4,496; Records: 4,782 

Number of Books Represented: More than 5,155 

(Fifty-eight records of the 4,782 records specify two or more unidentified 
books for a determinable total of 431 books, adding a net 373 books to 
the record total. In addition, thirty-seven records contain an indetermi- 
nable number of books, identified in the database as multiple. Also, one 
book may possibly be traced to two owners of collections included in the 
PLRE database [see PLRE 52.14:1-2 and PLRE 57.3], and another may 
have been listed twice in one owner's list, once when purchased and later 
in his probate inventory [PLRE Ad5.5 and PLRE Ad5.21].)

Stationers 
(Publishers, Printers, Booksellers) 



The stationers' names in the annotated book-lists are drawn either from imprints 
and colophons, which offer the names in a variety of forms, or from bibliographi- 
cal sources, none of which consistently agrees with another on those forms. For 
indexing purposes and for searching the database, PLRE has, therefore, 
constructed a uniform stationers' names list. English stationers' names, with a few 
exceptions, are derived from the STC, Volume 3; the forms of Continental names 
derive from a number of sources, including the STC, but most especially Adams. 
Accordingly, the names below do not always duplicate forms that appear in the 
annotated book-lists.
