PREFATORY NOTE.

The following pages comprise a list of the principal volumes of early English literature preserved in the Douce Collection, selected from the printed Catalogue for the use

of those students who do not care for the more modern

portion of the library, and who find that a folio volume

is inconvenient for constant reference.

The Douce Collection was bequeathed to the Bodleian Library in 1834. It contains numerous rarities, purchased

many years previously from the collections of Henderson,

Pearson, Farmer, and Herbert. There are many volumes that would be found elsewhere with great difficulty, and some few that are believed to be unique.

November, 1860.
