This chapter examines the composition and contents of the book collection at Salisbury Cathedral. The special characteristics of the composition of the Salisbury collection may reflect the different interests of the Salisbury canons. This chapter contends that the presence of texts at Salisbury which cannot be found in other centres indicates that Salisbury had independent links with Continental centres which gave the community access to exemplars unavailable elsewhere in England.
