Provenance and Acquisition
Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, Benedictine abbey of St Edmund, King and Martyr: 'Liber sancti Ӕdmundi'; 'A.31'. Medieval, probably contemporary binding. The old outer jacket appears now to be doing duty as the cover of MS Laud Misc. 233. (MLGB3: evidence from an ex-libris inscription or note of gift to an institution).
John Parry, 1653--4. (MLGB3)
