Excerpt from The Bodleian Manuscript of Jerome's Version of the Chronicle of Eusebius: Reproduced in Collotype
Needless to say, a work like this, with its constant reference to mss., often in distant libraries, would have been impossible but for the assistance of many scholar... s. My thanks are due in the first place to Mr. Turner who has read the whole work, either in ms. Or in proof, has furnished abundant suggestions and corrections, and has in short taken as much interest in it as if it had been his own. I must also acknowledge the uniform courtesy of the librarians at all the libraries I have visited, several of whom have also supplied me with special information on particular points. I should like to specify more particularly Mr. E. W. B. Nicholson and Mr. F. Madan of the Bodleian, the Rev. H. White of Merton College, Oxford, Dr. G. F. Warner of the British Museum, M. H. Omont of the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, Sac. Nicol?) Pojani of the Archiepiscopal Library at Udine, Dr. P. C. Molhuijsen of the University Library at Leiden, Dr. Mulinen of the Town Library at Bern, and M. Lecat of the Town Library at Valenciennes. I have also received valuable assistance from Professor K. Lake of the. University of Leiden, Dr. F. Ehrle of the Vatican Library, Professor W. C. F. Walters of King's College, London, Professor R. S. Conway of the University of Manchester, Professor L. Traube of Munich, Dr. G. Biagi of the Lauren tian Library at Florence, and Dr. G. Coggiola of the Library of Saint Mark at Venice. Assistance of a different, but not less valuable kind, has been received from the President and Fellows of Magdalen College, who have paid the cost of obtaining photographs of the Udine and Paris mss., together with the travelling expenses incurred on my last journey to France and Italy.
