1414: John Neuton and the Re-Foundation of York Minster Library

Books Surviving from Neuton's Bequests to the Minster and his Brother's Descendants

Only a few of the 70 books which Neuton bequeathed to the Minster and his brother's descendants survive. Some are at the Minster today, including at least two bequeathed to his brother's descendants; others have found their way into libraries of the universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
