Provenance and Acquisition
Solar and Easter tables run from 1386, lunar tables from 1387. Fols. 8v-9v are in hands of 15th century. Fol. 8v, 'regule Ebor', suggesting a York connection. Fol. 2, '...frater Ricardus Thorpp Augustiniensis', perhaps to be identified with the member of the York Austin Friars who witnessed the inventorying of the convent's library in 1372.
Fol. 11v: 'Thomas longland de fastonsley' (16th century, middle).
Bequeathed by him to the Ashmolean Museum.
Transferred to the Bodleian Library in 1860.
