Knowles : items found loose in the copy of Knowles' 'The Monastic Order in England' (Cambridge University Press, 1940) (Pet.569.14) presented by him to his father, Harry Herbert Knowles, inscribed 'To my dear Father from his son, 5 July, 1940'.
On his father's death in 1944 Knowles clearly reclaimed the book and in due course bequeathed it to Christopher Nugent Lawrence Brooke (1927-2015) and it was subsequently sold by G. David.
The book, which has been many times reprinted, has sparse annotations, mostly to the index, and, inside the back cover notes of corrections (which found their way into the second edtion of 1963) to seven pages.
