'Monasticon Anglicanum per Rogerum Dodsworthe inchoatum, 1638': a collection of foundation charters of English monastic houses, chronologically arranged, transcribed, for the most part in a secretary's hand, out of:

  1. MSS. Dodsworth 66, 68 (chartae antiquae)
  2. MS. Dodsworth 78 (Cottonian library: see fol. 6v)
  3. MS. Dodsworth 110 (Dugdale's collections, for which see also fol. 1)
  4. MSS. Dodsworth 118, 120 (charter rolls)
  5. And numerous other volumes of Dodsworth's collections, to which references are given throughout

The volume may be reckoned a first draft for Dugdale and Dodsworth's Monasticon, wherein practically the whole of its contents are incorporated: see the references to vol. i added in the hand of dr. Nathaniel Johnston. Lists of the monasteries included in it are given at fol. 3 and in the Old Catalogue.
