Synopsis

The important manuscript collections of the Society of Antiquaries of London reflect the interests of the Fellows of the Society from its foundation in 1717; the professional and private connections of the Fellows, and their specialist knowledge, ensured that important manuscripts were acquired at times when earlier collections were being dispersed. The Lindsey Psalter and Winton Domesday are the best known manuscripts in a wide range of material, in many languages, dating from the late 10th to the 20th century, including a number of fine illuminated manuscripts. The collections relate mainly to antiquities, history and law, theology and liturgy, heraldry and literature and contain many antiquarian curiosities, early archaeological reports as well as recent surveys. Other illustrated records relate to antiquities, architecture and topography, and important early registers of the Society are also included. The introduction describes the growth of the collections, and there is a detailed index. This is the first printed catalogue to be published on the Society's collections since 1816. PAMELA J. WILLETTS is former Deputy Keeper in the Department of Manuscripts, British Library.
