Description


Over 2,000 manuscripts accessioned between 1991 and 1995 are described and indexed in this latest volume of the Catalogue of Additions. They range from a 9th-century fragment of St Aldhelm's work to papers of the contemporary author Edward Upward and the economist Sir Roy Harrod. The Trumbull family papers in 380 volumes are the largest of the historical collections catalogued here, whilst modern composers are especially well represented by the comprehensive archives of Cornelius Cardew, Humphrey Searle, Andrzei Panufnik and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. Notable single volumes include two Books of Hours of the 14th and 15th centuries and Sir William Dugdale's Book of Monuments (1640-1641).
