MS. Bodl. 783
Summary Catalogue no.: 2610
Provenance and Acquisition
Exeter, Devon, Cathedral church of St Peter: Marginal marking in pencil as in other Exeter MSS, e.g. Bodley 289. Compare also the decoration in Bodley 691, also an Exeter book. Identifiable in the 1506 catalogue by second folio (one of two copies therein with this second folio, 'quod aliter'). Its size sugests that it, more probably than Bodley 708, is the '4 to pastoral Care' mentioned in the Benefactors' Register. Damp damage at each end, as in many books from Exeter. Document added at the end in which the prior and convent 'S. Nicholai Ex'' supplicate Bishop John (?Grandisson) that John Taylere acolyte should be advanced to subdeacon. (MLGB3: evidence from marginalia, sometimes distinctive of a particular house or known scribe, and from the style of script or illumination).
