Provenance and Acquisition
Mainz, Carthusian abbey of St Michael: An assemblage of booklets, none of which carries an ex-libris inscription of the Mainz Charterhouse. To judge from script and style, however, these were all written and consolidated at the Mainz Charterhouse, in s. xvin. The concluding argument in support of Mainz Charterhouse provenance is supplied by the contents.
William Laud, 1573–1645: Ex-libris inscription of Archbp. Laud, dated 1638, at the lower half of fol. 1v.
Given to the Bodleian as part of his third donation, dispatched on 28 June 1639.
