Sir William Dugdale's "Monasticon Anglicanum" is an extensive and spectacular collection of monastic charters and others sources relating to English monasteries and collegiate churches from the 6th century to the dissolution of the monasteries in the 1530s. Since the development of the monasteries and the Church of England were inextricably linked, this collection offers a valuable insight into the medieval religious world, and a history of the foundations of all the principal churches in England. The main body of the work is divided into sections each dealing with one monastic order, such as the Benedictines, the Cistercians, the Gilbertines, the Carthusians, the Knights Hospitalars of St John of Jerusalem, the Knights Templars, etc., with the buildings belonging to them: Vols. I, II, III and IV are devoted to Benedictine Monasteries; Vol. V is devoted to the Monasteries of the Cluniac and the Cistercian Orders; Vol VI, part I is devoted to the Carthusian Order, as well as the Order of St. Augustine; Vol VI, part II is devoted to the Hospitals of the Order of St. Augustine, the Knights Hospitalars of St John of Jerusalem, the Knights Templars, the Premonstratensian Order, the Gilbertine Order, Alien Priories, Cells to Foreign Monasteries, French Monasteries, Irish and Scotch Monasteries; Vol. VI, part III is devoted to Cathedral Churches of Secular Canons, Collegiate Churches of Secular Canons, Orders of Friars, including Nuns Minoresses. This last volume also includes a Memoranda of destroyed monasteries, an Appendix, and a General Index. This set is complete with its striking 245 tissue-guarded full-page and double-leaved plates (including William Dugdale's portrait). It includes engraved portraits of monastic figures showing the distinctive dress of each order (engraved by William Finden after drawings by Hollar), floor plans, arms and seals of monasteries, exterior and interior views of churches, abbeys and monasteries. Also includes a tree exhibiting the various Congregations of the Benedictine Order (vol. 1). Most of the copper plates were drawn and engraved by John Coney, others were engraved by William Finden, George Hollis, J. Lee, and William Byrne. This work was originally published in London in three volumes under the joint authorship of Roger Dodsworth and Sir William Dugdale (1655-73). A continuation in two volumes was also published in London under the title: "The history of the antient abbey, monasteries, hospitals, cathedral and collegiate churches. Being two additional volumes to Sir William Dugdale's Monasticon anglicanum, by John Stevens (1722-23)" This handsome 1849 edition is a reissue of Bohn's 1846 edition, with the greater part of the copper plates executed by John Coney, from sketches made by him expressly for the work. All the engravings are present.
