Provenance and Acquisition
Hyde, Hampshire, Benedictine abbey of Holy Trinity, St Mary the Virgin, and St Peter: Hyde kalendar. (MLGB3: Liturgical evidence, often to be found in the kalendar).
Gough liturg. 8 and Rawl. liturg. e.1* probably formed one volume: it looks as though the blue in Gough liturg. 8 fol. 71v has flaked off onto Rawl. liturg. e.1*, fol. 1r. Kalendar ed. by J.B.L. Tolhurst, The monastic breviary of Hyde Abbey, HBS (1932), v. Binding (s. xviii i ) identical with that of Rawl. liturg. e.1*. Double cols. of 36 lines. (MLGB3)
