DescriptionBodleian Library, Oxford, 'Catalogus impressorum librorum Bibliothecae Bodlejanae in academia Oxoniensi : Cura & opera Thomae Hyde. ..' 2 vols. (Oxford, 1674). Published catalogue of printed books in the Bodleian Library, acquired for Lambeth Palace Library by Archbishop Sancroft, containing numerous shelf marks and titles of Lambeth books in his hand. It was interleaved and used by successive Librarians (Edmund Gibson, Benjamin Ibbot and David Wilkins) as the author catalogue of Lambeth Palace Library from 1696 to 1718, and contains additions in their hands.

The additions are mainly in the hands of Edmund Gibson, Lambeth Librarian from 1696, and David Wilkins, Lambeth Librarian to at least 1720. Also present, on the front pastedown, are records of loans from the Library 1696-1710.
On Midsummer Day 1696, Edmund Gibson wrote to Thomas Tanner:
'The books in the Library are exceedingly dusty and very much misplac'd : there's noe finding any, til I have got the titles entered in Doctor Hyde's catalogue, with the numbers as they stand here. Under the hard labour of settling it I have this comfort, that it gives me a complete knowledge of the Library and that my pains about it will (I hope) one time or another be an ease to Mr. Tanner, to whom (whenever I am call'd from my present station) I would more heartily deliver the key than to any man living' (Bodleian Library, MS. Tanner 24, f. 115).
