Note: "John Bale's autograph notebook, preserved among Selden's manuscripts in the Bodleian library ... A carefully planned catalogue ... difering from Bale's published Catalogues [Illustrium maioris Britanniae scriptorum summarium [1548] and Scriptorum illustrium maioris Brytannie Catalogus 1557-1559] ... First, it is arranged alphabetically, not chronologically. Secondly, by far the greater number of the articles are followed by a reference to the authority or source from which their matter is derived ... This notebook ... bears no title ... I have adopted the title Index Britanniae scriptorum."--Pref.
