The Exeter Book

The other three major codices of Anglo–Saxon literature (according to Wikipedia) are:

The Vercelli Book – in the Capitulary Library of the city of that name, in the Italian region of Piedmont (no one knows how it ended up there)
The Nowell Codex – in the British Library (part of the Cotton Collection, on which the Library was originally based). This is most famous for containing the only surviving copy of the epic poem Beowulf
The Junius or Caedmon manuscript – in the Bodleian Library, to which it was bequeathed by the Anglo–Dutch philologist Franciscus Junius on his death in 1677
