A list of Thomas Hearne's printed books begun on May 14, 1709, and thereafter added to in order of acquisition till at least 1732. They are numbered from 1 to 3018, and each has its value in money as estimated by Hearne.

Nearly all are crossed out and have a shelf mark, showing that they had been transferred to Hearne's more orderly catalogue, now no. 15605. Some notes of loans are on pp. 394-6. This volume exactly corresponds to no. 15604, which is Hearne's List of his MSS. begun on the same day.
