Immediate Source of Acquisition
There is no record to show when these valuable books came to the Bodleian, but it may be conjectured that after Bishop Tanner's death they were transferred to the Library, in or soon after 1736. In Owen's List they are described as 'Wood's Almanacks, tied up in 3 Bundles.'
