TitleCARTAE MISCELLANEAE: DUCAREL CATALOGUE
Date1754
DescriptionA catalogue of the archival series of the Lambeth Charters known as Cartae Miscellaneae (formerly MSS 889-901), by Andrew Coltee Ducarel, afterwards Lambeth Librarian 1757-85.

The index accompanying this catalogue (LR/F/51) is dated 1754. On the researches carried out at Lambeth by AC Ducarel and his assistant Edward Rowe Mores 1754-55 see Robin Myers, 'Dr. Andrew Coltee Ducarel, Lambeth Librarian, Civilian, and Keeper of the Public Records', The Library, 6th series, vol. 21 (1999), 199-222.

In 1758 Ducarel produced a further version of the catalogue (LR/F/52), which records the contents of the collection selectively but in more accessible format. Ducarel's catalogue remained in use in the Library for the next century and a half, until Samuel Wayland Kershaw (Librarian 1868-1910) made and annotated a typescript copy of the index for the use of readers.
