Provenance and Acquisition
At the foot of fol. 5v is ‘Liber collegii de Merton in Oxon’ ex dono Magistri Iohannis Hanham quondam socii eiusdem cuius usus habeatur secundum discrecionem custodis.’ Hanham (BRUO 866) was fellow in 1427–8, until 1438, d. 1494. The gift of this one occurred in that year (Registrum, p. 57).
Inside the front board is a sheet of paper with a table of contents and ‘D. 8, 4’ (canc.), s. xvii, and ‘O. 8. 16. Art:’, canc. and replaced with ‘H. 1. 8 (CCI)’ in red; the College bookplate.
