Excerpt from Notes on the Cathedral Libraries of England
The Library of the Dean and Chapter is chie¿y available for the ufe of the Clergy of the Cathedral Church, and under proper re gulations becomes a convenient place of Rudy for the clerical fludent or the lettered divine... . The Libraries thus preferved have, as might be expected, great fimilarity of character. They often combine in a peculiar manner the learning of the middle ages, with the litera ture of a later date. Chie¿y embracing theo logical fubjeéts, they contain no fmall amount of claffical lore, and a large proportion of bif torical refearch. Among much that is obfolete there is more that is valuable, and amid much that is tri¿ing there is more that is important.
