previous chapter: General Bibliography and List of Abbreviations

Note: In the main part of this Survey manuscripts will be listed under the name of the place where they are located (or of their last known location). Within each entry these will be arranged in a roughly geographical order from West to East, beginning with the British Isles, and not, as in the present list, alphabetically. ‘Late’ manuscripts, i.e. those copied after 1250/1834–5, are recorded selectively (and usually omitted if they are listed in Munzawī). Publications describing manuscripts in three or more locations can be found in the General Bibliography (above). This should therefore be consulted for all references to works not listed below.
