Both the Abbey and the adjacent Westminster School have profited by the learning and generosity of generations of bishops, deans, canons and teachers, who donated or bequeathed them their collections of incunabula.Eighty-five editions of books printed before 1501, including seventeen fragments, several of great rarity and importance, have been described in this volume to be published by the Bibliographical Society.

They reflect the scholarly interests and collecting habits of their former owners, ranging widely in subject and originating from a variety of European presses.
