Provenance and Acquisition
John Bale (Appendix C, no. 7) saw at least part I at Merton. James, no. 167, specifies part II only, so the two parts may only have been united after 1600. Inside the front cover is a sheet of paper with ‘F. 4, 9’ (canc.) and a table of contents, s. xvii, ‘P. 3. 7. Art:’, s. xvii, canc. and replaced with ‘C. 1. 15 (CCXL)’ in red; the College bookplate.
