Title:
SION COLLEGE LIBRARY CATALOGUES
Description:
One of three interleaved copies of the catalogue of Sion College Library by its Librarian John Spencer (d. 1680): 'Catalogus universalis librorum omnium in bibliotheca Collegii Sionii apud Londinenses ... per J.S. bibliothecarium ...' (London, 1650). These copies were used as the catalogue of Sion College Library from 1650 to the Fire of London in 1666. The interleaved pages in all three copies record additions to the Library 1650-66 in the hand of John Spencer. L40.2/E171. Probably a copy for the use of readers, since this was chained within Sion College Library. Original vellum binding, 200 x 160 mm. with evidence of chaining on the upper front cover. 17th cent. Note by Spencer on the title page: '...continuata usque ad primum Septembris anno 1666'.
