According to John Stow, the library of St Paul's stood above `the East Quadrant' of the great cloister on the north side of the cathedral; it had been `well furnished with faire written bookes in Vellem; but few of them now do remaine there ...': John Stow, A Survey of London, ed. C.L. Kingsford, 2 vols (Oxford, 1971), I, 328. No manuscript of Henry's chronicle formerly in the library of St Paul's is known to survive
