  • The Sources and Authorship of The Coppy of a Letter of Father Philips
           (1641)
    • Authors: Schneider G.
      Pages: 3 - 18
      Abstract: Since 1641, the principal letter in the pamphlet The Coppy of a Letter of Father Philips has been attributed to Robert Philip, confessor to Queen Henrietta Maria. This article demonstrates that this almost 400-year-old attribution is incorrect and that Philip did not in fact write the letter, but rather that the letter is an amalgamation of three different intercepted letters read in Parliament during June 1641. Evidence is also presented that at least one of the three letters in question was written by secular priest George Leyburn and was intended for Richard Smith, bishop of Chalcedon.

  • Grindletonianism in Manuscript and Print: the Role of Josiah Collier
           (1595–1677)
    • Authors: Pickering O.
      Pages: 19 - 38
      Abstract: Grindletonianism, a manifestation of antinomian religious belief that attracted followers in northern England during the seventeenth century, has come down to us through the writings of Roger Brereley (1586'–1637), one-time curate of Grindleton, in Craven, and his disciple Josiah Collier (1595–1677). These writings, in both prose and verse, survive in two manuscripts in Collier’s hand and, in part, in a printed book, A Bundle of Soul-Convincing, Directing and Comforting Truths (1670, 1677), of which the first edition was printed in Edinburgh for sale in Glasgow. After a brief account of Collier’s life, a summary of the contents of the two manuscripts, and a description of the printed editions, the article appraises the differing contents of the manuscripts and their likely dates of compilation; discusses the textual choices and modifications that took place in the transition from manuscript to print; and considers the extent to which Collier himself may have been involved in the production of the printed volume. The conclusion is that Collier very likely revised some of the manuscript materials in an apparent effort to weaken the antinomian sentiment in order to make the doctrines more acceptable to a mainstream Puritan readership, and that he was possibly prompted to do this by his patron Jane Baildon, for whom he wrote the less outspoken of the two manuscripts. The article further considers the uncertain bibliographical status of the second, verse section of the 1670 edition of A Bundle of Soul-Convincing, Directing and Comforting Truths, which was produced separately from the first (which contains Brereley’s sermons), and it ends by demonstrating that the so-called 1676 edition of the volume (Wing B4658A) is a ghost.

  • Folios in Context: Collecting Shakespeare at the University of London
    • Authors: Attar K.
      Pages: 39 - 62
      Abstract: Shakespearean holdings at Senate House Library, University of London, shot into international prominence when in 2013 the then library director, Christopher Pressler, attempted to sell a set of the first four Shakespeare folios given to the University as part of a named special collection, to be kept together in perpetuity. By this time Shakespeare had long been described as a particular strength of the University Library, largely on the basis of its eleven seventeenth-century Shakespeare folios. Yet the Library had begun with negligible literary holdings. When it opened as the University of London Library in 1877, it did so merely with the nine-volume Cambridge edition of 1863–66, a volume of Shakespeare’s poetry, and two translations of Hamlet. The current article discusses the background of those Folios, in particular the First Folio formerly owned by Sir Edwin Durning-Lawrence (noted in literature from 1821 onwards) and the set of Shakespeare folios from the library of Sir Louis Sterling. It looks at their earlier provenance and use in detail not provided by the censuses of First Folios, and explores their context within the collections of the Baconian Durning-Lawrence and the high-spot collector Sterling. The article further suggests the background which could have made an institution with no literary pretensions want the works of England’s prominent playwright as means of enhancing national significance. It discusses the Library’s treatment and appreciation of the Durning-Lawrence and Sterling collections and traces their influence on further acquisitions, especially under the guiding hand of University Librarian John Henry Pyle Pafford. And it shows the relationship between educational value and prestige in wanting to own antiquarian works pertaining to Shakespeare—the latter an element which no surrogate, printed or digital, can replace.

  • John Lakenheath's Rearrangement of the Archives of Bury St Edmunds Abbey,
           c. 1380
    • Authors: Dunning A.
      Pages: 63 - 68
      Abstract: John Lakenheath (d. 1381) was a monk and administrator of the estates of Bury St Edmunds Abbey. He reorganized its archives in 1378–81, still in disorder after it had been sacked by the townspeople in 1327. This culminated in the ‘Lakenheath Registry’ (London, British Library, MS Harley 743), an indexed directory of the Bury charters created in 1379–81. His preface to this book explains the archive’s mode of operation, and is here printed for the first time and translated.

  • James Whatman II at the Old Bailey
    • Authors: Day G; Junqua A.
      Pages: 73 - 76
      Abstract: This note describes how James Whatman II, the pre-eminent British paper-maker, was the expert witness at the Old Bailey on 26 July 1783 when William Wynne Ryland was indicted for ‘having in his custody and possession, a certain bill of exchange, purporting to bear date at Fort St George in the East Indies’ for £200. There were seven further counts in the indictment, specifying intention to defraud and naming the various parties concerned, the most important being the East India Company. At this trial Whatman provided key details about the practices in his mill and his business dealings with London stationers.
