Provenance and Acquisition

New College, Oxford: On fol. 352v (cf. 350r) is written faintly 'Eleccio siue nominado scolarium admissorum [?] in collegium beate [Marie] Wynton in Oxon' followed by three hardly decipherable names of which one is Willelmus Buttermere', which fixes the date as 1492: on fol. 350 is 'Magister J. Lucas', perhaps the John Lucas who was fellow of New college in 1407–14.

Possibly given by Thomas James in 1601. (The Benefactors' Register only records the gift by dr. Thomas James in 1601 of 'Biblia vulgatæ editionis' folio.)
