The origins of Michael Dormer's donation

Abstract:
The books given to the Bodleian in 1603 by Michael Dormer are one of two case studies discussed by Robyn Adams and Louisiane Ferlier in a recent article that explores early donations to the library.1 Their account is here supplemented by a study of the bindings of Dormer’s books: the bindings allow certain identification of his unsigned copies; they provide information on dispersal after the collection entered the Bodleian; and, most importantly, they reveal a single earlier source for the bulk of the collection.
