The care of books; an essay on the development of libraries and their fittings, from the earliest times to the end of the eighteenth century by John Willis Clark( Book )

95 editions published between 1901 and 2017 in English and German and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Willis Clark, a noted academic and antiquarian, published this book in 1901 after completing his work on the architectural history of Cambridge. His carefully researched study (Clark personally visited and measured every building he described, and drew many of the illustrations), provides a wide-ranging account of the history of libraries from antiquity to the early modern period. Clark describes the buildings used to store books: churches, cloisters, and purpose-built libraries; the way collections were endowed, audited and protected; the development of library furniture, including lecterns, stalls, chaining systems and wall-cases; and the characteristics of monastic, collegiate, and private collections. The book is generously illustrated, and its approachable style means it will appeal not only to academic historians of libraries, but to a wider audience of those interested in books and reading culture, historic buildings and artefacts, and medieval, renaissance and early modern studies

Liber memorandorum ecclesie de Bernewelle by John Willis Clark( Book )

16 editions published between 1907 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Priory of St Giles and St Andrew, Barnwell, was among the earliest English communities of Augustinian Canons, founded by the Sheriff of Cambridge in 1092. Although little survives of its physical remains, the Liber Memorandorum, edited in 1907 by J.W. Clark, is a significant source for both Cambridge and Augustinian history. Although often referred to as a cartulary, its contents are more wide ranging than just a collection of legal documents. It includes a history of the foundation, and many items concerning the relations between Barnwell and the surrounding area, including disputes with the University. The text was compiled around 1296 from earlier records, although the calendar contains later obituaries. The edition includes a valuable explanation of the documents' legal content by the leading legal historian F.W. Maitland, and is an important resource for researchers in medieval legal or church history, as well as that of the Cambridge area
A descriptive catalogue of the manuscripts in the library of Peterhouse by Peterhouse (University of Cambridge)( Book )

14 editions published in 1899 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

M. R. James (1862-1936) is probably best remembered as a writer of chilling ghost stories, but he was an outstanding scholar of medieval literature and palaeography, who served both as Provost of King's College, Cambridge, and as Director of the Fitzwilliam Museum, and many of his stories reflect his academic background. His detailed descriptive catalogues of manuscripts owned by colleges, cathedrals and museums are still of value to scholars today. James' catalogue of the manuscript holdings of Peterhouse, Cambridge, with an essay on the history of the college library by John Willis Clark, was first published in 1899. Now reissued, it will be welcomed by librarians and researchers alike

The observances in use at the Augustinian priory of S. Giles and S. Andrew at Barnwell, Cambridgeshire by John Willis Clark( Book )

16 editions published between 1897 and 2011 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Priory of St Giles and St Andrew, Barnwell, was among the earliest English communities of Augustinian canons, founded by the sheriff of Cambridge in 1092. Although little survives of its buildings, its records form a significant source for both Cambridge and Augustinian history. The Observances, translated and edited in 1897 by J. W. Clark, form the eighth book of the late thirteenth-century Liber Memorandorum, also reissued in this series. The fourth-century Rule of St Augustine is a short and general guide to community life, and needed to be supplemented by a fuller set of instructions for the day-to-day running of the complex organisation which comprised a medieval monastery. The Observances provide detail about the roles played by all the officials of the priory and about the daily cycle of work and prayer, and give the modern reader a real insight into medieval monastic life

Endowments of the University of Cambridge by John Willis Clark( )

15 editions published between 1904 and 2010 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Universities everywhere strive to enhance resources to improve facilities, increase staffing, provide bursaries for students and expand research capacity. As one of the world's oldest and greatest universities, the University of Cambridge has throughout its 800 years cultivated and received philanthropic support from many sources. This volume, originally published in 1904, details university endowments from the thirteenth century onward. The first major donation, from Nigel de Thornton, was land for part of the site of the University Library. This was soon followed by a fund bequeathed by Eleanor of Castile for the support of poor students - confirming how key priorities have not changed over so many years. This ambitious volume catalogues benefactions, grants, foundations, memorial funds and much more. Explanations are given for how these endowments have helped establish and maintain many of the University's fine libraries, museums and historic buildings as well as supporting its students and staff
