The same as MSS. Holkham Gr. 48–49 and 51.
MSS Holkham Gr. 49–51 were once bound in one volume. See also Barbour, 601: ’50–51 originally one volume’. Barbour missed 49, but implies it as she gives collectively three manuscripts’ numbers and codicological details (ie MS Holkham Gr. 49–51, in the description of MS Holkham Gr. 51). Typical Holkham binding of dark brown leather, with Coke family ostrich crest in gilt in the centre of the upper cover; Date: early nineteenth century. Rebound by John Jones of Liverpool (worked for Holkham 1816–1823). The spine lettered in gilt: COMMENTAR/IN JONAM/ NAHUM ET/ MICHÆAM GR./ MS. SÆC. XV./ ; in pasted black leather: MS. /HOLKHAM/ Gr. 50.
