MS. Bodl. 64
Summary Catalogue no.: 2061
In four books; the title is in a later hand, as is the 2nd article.
The opening words of the text, which follows a prose preface (beginning as above) and a short set of verses beginning 'Hec sunt precipue sermonibus insinuanda', seem to imply that the treatise is based on, or in accordance with, the 'dicta bone memorie W⟨illelmi⟩ de Montibus quondam cancellarii Lincolniensis, cuius anime propicietur Deus': Gulielmus de Monte, more commonly known as Gulielmus de Leicestria, who died in 1213.
Some Latin notes follow on foll. 149-51, partly from the 5th book of the Decretals.
Stamped brown leather on boards, early 16th cent., clasps lost.
Provenance and Acquisition
Bought (as SC 1860) with part of £100 promised by lord Danvers in 1601, but only received through sir Edwin Sandys in 1607.
