Reynolds, S. (2018). Review of A Descriptive Catalogue of the Medieval Manuscripts of the Queen's College, Oxford. By Peter Kidd. The Library: the transactions of the Bibliographical Society, 19 (1), 77-78. https://doi.org/10.1093/library/19.1.77
Peter Kidd's catalogue is the first in a new special series of manuscript catalogues produced under the auspices of the Oxford Bibliographical Society. It covers fifty-nine volumes (two housed in the College Archives) and three collections of fragments dating from the tenth to the sixteenth century, the majority of them English, a significant number French, with Italian, Netherlandish, German, and Scottish material also represented. Each one is thoughtfully illustrated by a black- and-white image embedded within the text and in a separate section of colour plates. Its meticulous scholarship and generous production values set the bar for further catalogues in the series very high indeed.
