Abstract

The British Library (until 1973 part of the British Museum) holds more than 310,000 volumes of manuscripts and, just as at the Bodleian, digital cataloguing means that simple ‘on-line’ searches are possible. Here too, previously overlooked Gascoigne material can be quickly located: One piece has been there since the very inception of the Library, having previously belonged to Sir Hans Sloane (1660–1753), one time President of the Royal Society.
