MC:F23/MS6 ‘Catalogue’ of the Goodyer Collection
MC:F23/MS6/1 4 March 1914
Hand-written booklet entitled ‘John Goodyer’s Library. 1664.’ The booklet starts with a note about Goodyer and his donation in Latin, stating that Goodyer was a celebrated botanist who gave 120 books to the library at Magdalen. The booklet then lists Goodyer’s printed books with shelfmarks. Information given includes author, short title, the size of the book, the publisher and/or place of publication and year of publication. In some cases there are question marks instead of shelfmarks. Wilson notes where an item is not in the library catalogue. He then lists manuscripts given by Goodyer, with titles, size, and some notes about them. He then has just over a page of further items that appear to have been given by Goodyer, although they were not included in the first list in this document for various reasons, which Wilson outlines. The document is signed H.A.W., Magdalen College, and dated.
