'Liber Thomæ James Proto-Bibliothecarij Oxon ad vsum Bibliothecæ Oxon, 1610.' A supplement to the printed Bodleian Catalogue of 1605, containing all the books, printed and manuscript, which the Library acquired between 1605 and 1611, entered as they came in, or in groups, under their press-mark, whether in Theology, Medicine, Jurisprudence or Arts: a small subsidiary list is at p. 392.

At p. 540 rev. is a skeleton index to sermons on verses in the Prophets in some volume of about 275 pages in double columns. On p. v is the original entry of the admission of nineteen foreign students as readers in the Bodleian, March 29-April 2, 1604: they each sign their name and nationality. Dr. James has written various notes. Pp. i-ii, 549-50 are parts of two leaves of a glossed Latin Bible of the late 13th century.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

It is probable that this volume never left the Library, and may be regarded as acquired about 1611, when the last normal entry of a book was made. The name of archbp. John Williams is on pp. 546, 548, probably written in in 'MDCXX'. The first press-mark given to the volume is of about 1650.
