MS. Auct. F. 6. 4
Summary Catalogue no.: 2150
The ornamentation of A and B suggests that there was not as much as a century of interval between them, but A cannot well be later than early 13th cent., while Trivet did not die till 1328, and B is certainly not his autograph. The ornamentation of the older part may have been put in later than the writing, while the border on fol. 62r is an imitation of that on fol. 1r.
