Subject:        Private Libraries in Renaissance England
 
The first three volumes of the ^Private Libraries in Renaissance England^
series compiled by R. J. Fehrenbach and  E. S. Leedham-Green are now in
print. The volumes now available describe lists of books owned by gentry,
clergy, and professional academics (many are derived from wills or lists of
books appraised as parts of estates) and are annotated with title, author(s),
STC status, publication data, cost or appraised value, language, and
location. Although the electronic database is not yet (to my knowledge)
available, I believe that the editor will search the database-in-progress if
you write with an inquiry; more information about this can be found in volume
3.
 
They are available in hardcover for $25. each. In the U.S. they may be
ordered from Medieval & Renaissance Texts & Studies, LNG-99, SUNY Binghamton,
Binghamton, NY 13902-6000. voice (607) 777-6758 , fax (607) 777-2408. Adam
Matthews Publications distributes them overseas. The typesetting is
exquisite.
