Provenance and Acquisition
Alzey (dissolved 1564) was a daughter house of Eberbach; the manuscript presumably came from the nunnery to Eberbach at some unknown point. There is no Eberbach inscription and the volume cannot be identified in the Eberbach catalogue.
William Laud, 1573–1645, 1638.
Part of his third donation to the Bodleian, 1639.
