ENGLISH RENAISSANCE BIBLIOGRAPHY FINDING-LIST
ENG 9200H: 1480-1660
New College, Department of English
University of Toronto, Toronto, Ont. M5S 1A1
Version 1: April 1993
This collaborative effort aims to help acquaint English doctoral
researchers at Toronto with the wealth of local material available in a wide
range of disciplines mainly outside English studies.
The finding-list was compiled by the doctoral students of my ENG 9200H
(Bibliography II: 1475-1660) in the Department of English, University
of Toronto, during the late 1980s. They were asked to select the fifty
most useful bibliographical entries for a topic and to locate
these works at one of the libraries in the University of Toronto.
Several sections needed almost one hundred entries. Texts from the
period, or primary historical sources, had the first priority.
Those responsible for individual sections are Patricia Baxter (biography), Ron Cooley (printed books, Church of England), Richard Giles (dictionaries), John Greenwood (John Greenwood), Stephen Guy-Bray, Elizabeth Hanson (law, music), Ann Kaegi, Walter Lim (Church of England), Christina Luckyj (architecture and geography), Louis Mirando (printed books), David Parkinson (law), Mark Sebanc (dictionaries), Elizabeth Silaj (manuscript catalogues), Rochelle Simmons (architecture and geography, arts), and Karen Widdicombe (government publications), and Greg Williams (science, classical mythology).
Library identifiers and shelfmarks are local to the University of Toronto.
I have not checked all items, although several sections have been done
twice (for example, I have revised the dictionaries section).
Corrections, additions and comments are welcomed.

Surprisingly easy to read and clearly laid out, they are a good place to start if you want a contemporary account of a particular legal issue. However, Coke is normative rather than merely descriptive, so what he says does not always reflect contemporary practice.
