Standard Merton s. xvii, sewn on four bands; formerly chained from the usual position. Fols. i-iii and 193–5 are paper endleaves, the two outermost from the same printed book as in MS 13. On fol. 1 are marks perhaps of two straps and of an iron chain-staple near the foot of the foredge. fol. 192, once a pastedown, has near its foot the marks of the large brass chain-staple.
Provenance and Acquisition
The chain-staple mark suggests that the book was at Merton before the Reformation. It was certainly there by 1556 (UO65. 178).
At the head of fol. 1 is the James no. ‘192’ (recte 189), s. xvii in.
Inside the front board is a sheet of paper with title, s. xvii, ‘F. 6, 5’ (canc.), and ‘O. 4. 2. Art:’, canc. and replaced with ‘H. 2. 12 [corr. to F. 2. 2]’ and ‘CXLVI)’ in red; the College bookplate.
