Provenance and Acquisition
Rudolf Anton Fabricius (1689–1772) (?): an eighteenth-century inscription (fol. i recto) reads ‘Hieronymi Seripandi, Cardinalis, qui Concilio Tridentino interfuit, (mortui A. 1563) Tractatus non editus, de Sacramentis in genere, et in specie, argumentisque aliis connexis. Contenta hujus libri vide sub finem. Fuit in Auctione Rud. Aug. Fabricii, Prof. Helmst., qui eum ex itinere Italico attullit.’.
