'Ordinale quotidianum, 1685. Ordo Trigintalis prout celebratus est die tricesimo (altered to feriâ tricesimâ) post depositionis diem lectissimæ fæminæ S. M.' These are a private form of Hour Service, and also (fol. 19) a Mass for the dead, by E. Rowe Mores, the latter adapted to commemorate the death of his wife Susannah on Jan. 8, 1767. A few copies were privately printed at the author's private press at Low Leyton, Essex, from this MS.

MS. Gough Liturg. 20

Other Finding Aids

Falconer Madan, et al., A summary catalogue of western manuscripts in the Bodleian Library at Oxford which have not hitherto been catalogued in the Quarto series (7 vols. in 8 [vol. II in 2 parts], Oxford, 1895-1953; reprinted, with corrections in vols. I and VII, Munich, 1980), vol. V, no. 28046.

Custodial History

This volume was found in about A.D. 1860 lying among the unbound Rawlinson MSS. (to which collection it cannot possibly have properly belonged), and was accordingly bound up in MS. Rawl. D. 1351 (Summary Catalogue no. 14080), forming fols. 401-428 of that volume.

In 1896 it was taken out, re-bound and referenced as now, but had it been Gough's it would probably have found its way into the liturgical division of the 1814 Catalogue. It may possibly have been given by Dr. Price, as nos. 28037-28045, and so is here joined to the other Mores MSS.

Summary Catalogue note: [I do not again change the reference, as the former unbound state of these papers may perhaps account for their having become separated from the Gough collection.--E.W.B.N.]
