In the early twentieth century, a project to produce a complete catalogue was begun, and four volumes were published between 1914 and 1940. Volume 2 contains a general introduction to the library and its history, including extracts from Pepyss diary, will, and accounts. It then lists and describes the early printed books, with notes as to special features, other extant copies and publication history, among them several liturgical books in the Sarum rite and 1557 editions of Malorys La morte dArthur and the works of Thomas More.

It also includes an index of printers. This catalogue remains a valuable resource for researchers in early publishing history and seventeenth-century studies.
