No sign of original chain mark. (MLGB3: evidence from an ex-libris inscription or note of gift to an institution).

John Marshall was bp. of Llandaff 1478--1496. He gave 2 and bequeathed 8 books to Merton College (v. Powicke, Medieval books of Merton Coll., pp. 219, 222). Not certainly part of the Windsor gift in 1612. (MLGB3)
