John Bale's Catalogue of Tudor Authors: An Annotated Translation of Records from the Scriptorum illustrium maioris brytanniae . . . Catalogus (1557-1559)
A meticulously annotated translation of the Tudor-era title entries in John Bale’s two-part Catalogue of British Authors, identifying over 1500 extant and lost works by 237 writers of the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. Each title is translated from the Latin and if extant identified, with cross-references to STC and other catalogues, locations of manuscript and non-STC works, a general index, STC index, and other indices that make this an indispensable resource for the study of Tudor political and intellectual history, the English Reformation, early English Renaissance literature, and the rise of the printing press and English book culture.
