Provenance and Acquisition

Written in 1501 by Caspar Olaer Blomenhawer, of Freinsheim: colophon, fol. 96r.

Watson's tentative ascription to the Mainz Carthusians is not warranted by the source he cites (Heinrich Schreiber Die Bibliothek der ehemaligen Mainzer Kartause: die Handschriften und ihre Geschichte, Leipzig, 1927, p. 145) and the present manuscript is not listed by Krämer or Mairhofer.

William Laud, 1573-1645, 1638.

Part of his third donation to the Bodleian, 1639.
