'Catalogus Librorum Bibliothecæ (Externæ) Mortlacensis D. Joh. Dee, a° 1583. 6. Sept.' This is a list of bound books, both printed and (p. 65) manuscript, in dr. John Dee's library at Mortlake.

It is probably a copy of Trin. Coll. Camb. MS. O. iv. 20, or Brit. Mus. MS. Harl. 1879. Almost all the MSS. are marked 'T.' or 'Fr.'

Pp. 12b-e should follow p. 44, but only 145 of the MSS. are here described, some leaves being lost at end.
