Provenance and Acquisition

Dore, Herefordshire, Cistercian abbey of St Mary the Virgin: "Liber monachorum Sancte Marie Wallis Dore" (s. xv, on fol. 1v, facing the first page of text). "Liber sancte marie Wallis Dore qui eum fraude furaverit" (s. xv ex.) at end of MS. (fol. 126v). Erased inscription in red and perhaps of s. xiii/ xiv, above the other on fol. 126v, appears to have read "Liber monachorum Sancte Marie Vallis [...]". (MLGB3: evidence from an ex-libris inscription or note of gift to an institution).
