Autograph Letter Signed, in French with translation, to Reginald Lane Poole, (1857-1940, Editor of the English Historical Review, Lecturer in Diplomatic at Oxford, 1896-1927), thanking him "for the fine volume of the Index Britanniae Scriptorum ... No souvenir of the celebrations of the third centenary of the Bodleian could be more agreeable ... Thanks to the scholarly edition which you and Miss Bateson have produced of Bale's lists, numerous small anonymous works can be restored to their true authors, and will come to enrich the literary history of the Middle Ages", 2 sides 8vo., Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris, 18th October

Omont, besides supervising the author catalogue of the Bib. Nat., was reponsible for the catalogue of Greek Manuscripts (1886-1898) and for many fine facsimiles, and for cataloguing new acquisitions of Latin and French MSS for forty years to 1931.
