Editorial Reviews

`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 isresponsible for a goodly part of the descriptions.'Anthony Ward, SM, Ephemerides Liturgicae 108 (1994)
