* Mr. Warren's Leofric is well supplied, and Mr. Greenwell's Egbert and Dr. Henderson's Manuals have a general



WHEN Mr. Greenwell edited the Pontifical and Benedictional of Egbert, Archbishop of York (circa A.D. 750), from an early 10th century MS., in the then "Imperial" Library of Paris (No. 138, fonds du Supplement, Latin), as the twenty-seventh volume of the Surtees Society's publications in 1853, he gave a list of eighteen Pontificals "of the Anglo-Saxon Church" as all that were known to him at that time. Some out of that number were merely reported to have been seen at the interval of several generations back, and it is not known that any further traces of them have been discovered since that date. At the same time, he asked for further information on behalf of the Surtees Society.

About twenty years later, Dr. W. G. Henderson edited the 13th century Pontifical, which afterwards belonged to Archbishop Bainbridge, of York (A.D. 1508-14), as the sixty-first volume of the same series. He omitted several of the MSS. which had been included in Mr. Greenwell's list, and he reported eight or nine Pontificals in writing or in substance earlier than the Norman Conquest.

But, as Dr. Henderson carried his list of "Pontificals of English and Scotch Use" as late as to the commencement of the 16th century, he included as many as thirty-six volumes,-of which one at least (No. XXXVI., p. xliv.) contains, under one cover, portions of more than one Pontifical.

* The Benedictional of Ethelwold, the Red Book of Darbye, and six others. To Dr. Henderson's list may be added a 12th century Pontifical, at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. It is entitled, Liber Sci. Cuthberti. In its contents (of which we give a full collation in Appendix II.), it agrees very nearly with Henderson's No. VII.
