Provenance and Acquisition
On fol. i ‘Liber domus scolarium de Merton ex tradicione Bernard’ pro Hugucione’, s. xiv, repeated on fol. iivin a hand of s. xvii. This must refer to Thomas Bernard (BRUO 179), fellow in 1322–3 and 1346: UO47. 142, ‘in libraria’.
Lower down is ‘Caucio M. [erased] pro ii s.’, s. xiv.
At the foot of fol. 85 a pen trial ofc.1500 includes the name ‘Ric’ Borstalle’ (perhaps the Borstalle who wrote Bodl. Libr., Lat. misc. d. 53).
At the head of fol. 1 is the James no. ‘30’ (but this is MS 116), s. xvii in. Inside the front board is a sheet of paper with a title, s. xvii, and ‘O. 1. 8. Art:’, canc. and replaced with ‘L. 2. 7 (CXIV)’ in red; the College bookplate.
