Catalogue of Manuscripts of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, Volume 2
CCCC MS 491 is the first of two volumes of the autograph notes of William Stanley (1647-1731) for his Catalogue of the Parker Library manuscripts published in 1722. These contain the descriptions of manuscripts in Stanley's classification (itself derived from the Parker Register, CCCC MS 575) for the volumes G.6 through to the Liber ab aliis donati. Both this and its companion volume, CCCC MS 492, were purchased at the auction of the Thomas Phillipps collection in 1898, this volume being Phillipps MS 7260.
