The four files available below provide, chiefly, a searchable PDF of the List of Identifications, which is a cumulative index to identified works appearing in the first sixteen volumes of the Corpus. This is some 900 pages in length (5MB). The List comprises records for more than 9000 works documented from British libraries between the late 10th and mid 16th century; of these about 670 are identified anonymous works and 8500 are the works of 3300 different writers ranging in date from Homer and other Greek authors to the middle of the 16th century. It is estimated that over 40,000 copies of individual works are recorded so far, of which some 85% do not now physically survive. The great majority of the individual copies so documented were manuscripts, but the List also records nearly 6000 copies of printed editions recorded in lists dating from between the invention of printing and about 1550.
There are still some dozens of queries within the List, which continues to be augmented and improved. Corrections are received with gratitude. Also available here is an Introduction to the List of Identifications, explaining its principles and complexities; a key to references by which medieval and early renaissance booklists are cited; and a list of the published and unpublished volumes of the Corpus.
All of the files may be downloaded as PDFs for printing or displayed on screen (and searched) using the Adobe Acrobat Reader. The reader is freely available and can be obtained directly from Adobe. For best performance save the files to your computer (ctrl + click).
For regular use of the List of Identifications, readers are recommended to print copies of the introduction and keys to abbreviations and to medieval documents, so that they can become familar with the methods of the list.
