Excerpts from printed list of books and readers (1861)
Many lists of readers and books survive in the OED archives, both printed and manuscript. The division into three chronological sections is standard; see Initial practice and FJF's notebook. Here is the title page of one of the printed lists, dated 8 June 1861, followed by images of a selection of its contents. Many of the annotations are in Furnivall's hand. Navigate the pages by choosing from the drop-down menu above or clicking on 'Next'/'Prev' at the bottom of the page. Click on the image for an enlargement.
