Provenance and Acquisition
Written by a Franciscan (Rouse & Rouse, p. civ), perhaps at the Oxford Greyfriars where the Tabula itself seems to have been compiled (ibid., ch. 5 passim).
‘Frater Jacobus Tubenhay de ordine minorum’, fol. 238, 15th century (Watson) or 14th century, middle (Rouse & Rouse, p. civ).
‘Finis Tabulae septem custodiarum petri Wilhymleyd’ and ‘secundum exemplar Magistri Wattson oxon.’ olim ex ordine minorum’, both early 16th century, fol. 235v. The mistaken ascription of authorship in the former passage derives from the colophon of Oxford, Balliol College MS. 217, of which Peter Wilhhymleyd was the scribe (Rouse & Rouse, p. c).
Probably acquired between 1605 and 1611.
