The present volume completes the cataloguing of manuscripts. This impressive undertaking will be concluded with one further volume, which will contain addenda and extensive indexes to all the volumes. 'a remarkable achievement of scholarship...The descriptions of the manuscripts are full and at the same time admirably concise...Any user of the work, whether his interests are palaeographical, iconographical, or textual, will be deeply grateful for the wealth of information contained in this volume'. Review of English Studies 'will be invaluable not only for reference but for the comprehensive and immensely precise assurance that it will give to scholars in every field of medieval studies that nothing relevant to their purposes now lurks in unrecorded concealment'. English Historical Review.

`a remarkable achievement of scholarship ... The descriptions of the manuscripts are full and at the same time admirably concise ... Any user of the work, whether his interests are palaeographical, iconographical, or textual, will be deeply grateful for the wealth of information contained in this volume.' Review of English Studies `The value of the work cannot be overestimated' Journal of the Society of Archivists `will be invaluable not only for reference but for the comprehensive and immensely precise assurance that it will give to scholars in every field of medieval studies that nothing relevant to their purposes now lurks in unrecorded concealment' English Historical Review `an outstanding monument of British scholarship ... No one working in the manuscript field needs now to be convinced of the value of MMBL, nor of the authority of Ker's words on any manuscript which passed through his hands' Times Literary Supplement 'each of Ker's volumes is made invaluable by his inclusion of older collections ... Every library or individual who has to work with medieval MSS will already know that Medieval Manuscripts in British Libraries is an indispensable as it is authoritative.' Nigel Ramsay, British Library, Archives, Oct 1992, No. 88 'Detailed annotations make the series indispensable.' Northern History, Vol. 29 `While a good many of these manuscripts are already known from other published surveys, they are here to be found with fresh and authoritative descriptions ... Dr Piper is to be congratulated on the seeing through to publication with high competence of this fourth volume, of which he is responsible for a goodly part of the descriptions.' Anthony Ward, SM, Ephemerides Liturgicae 108 (1994)
