PREFACE.
When engaged in editing and completing The Architectural History of the
University and Colleges of Cambridge, I devoted much time and attention to the essay called The
Library. The subject was entirely new; and the more I looked into it, the more convinced did I

become that it would well repay fuller investigation than was then possible. For instance, I felt
certain that the Customs affecting monastic libraries would, if one could only discover them, throw
considerable light on collegiate statutes relating to the same subject.
