This is the eighth volume in a continuing series of publications listing and identifying all illustrations contained in English manuscripts from the time of Chaucer to Henry VIII. This was an important period in the history of English book production, and the range of subject-matter illustrated is of significance to historians of art, religion, literature, costume, natural science, and social custom. The present volume catalogues manuscripts in the Oxford College Libraries. The entries in the catalogue note the subject-matter of every illustration in each manuscript, from full-page miniatures and historiated initials to marginalia, added drawings and nota bene signs. A comprehensive index of pictorial subjects provides readers with complete references to the visual material with thematic groupings. The volume also includes a User's Guide, an extensive glossary of subjects and terms and indexes of authors/texts and manuscripts with coats of arms.
