TitleTENISON'S LIBRARY
Datec.1693
DescriptionCatalogue entitled in Tenison's hand, 'Catalogue of my Books in my Closet in St. Martin's Library'. The catalogue was written in about 1693, and additions have been made subsequently of books published before this date. A few of the entries are by Tenison who has also indicated books 'wanting' and books 'removed to Lambhith'.

Subsequent note. When found by Samuel Roffey Maitland, Lambeth Librarian 1838-48, this volume is said to have had an additional title in Tenison's hand on the front cover: 'Catal. in S.M.L. Clos. 1697' (see LR/D/5, f. 171). This cover appears to have been lost in the 20th century rebinding. The date of the catalogue merits reconsideration in this light.
