    More Information:

    "The edition of the Monasticon which has practically superseded all the others is the magnificent one in six folio volumes (here bound in eight) with the imprint 1817-1830: Monasticon Anglicanum... a new edition enriched with a large accession of materials now first printed... the history of each religious foundation in English being prefixed to its respective series of Latin charters. It was published in fifty four parts, the first of which was issued on 1 June 1813, under the editorship of the Rev. Bulkeley Bandinel, the chief librarian of the Bodleian. After the issue of part four, he was joined by John Caley, of the augmentation office, and later Sir Henry Ellis, principal librarian of the British Museum, who seems thenceforth chiefly to have discharged the duties of editorship. What was best in Steven's additions was incorporated in this edition, which contains accounts of hundreds of religious houses not mentioned by Dugdale. Hollar's chief plates were re-engraved for it, and its 246 illustrations (on 243 plates) are said to have cost six thousand guineas." (DNB).
