Further information

  • Annotations in light red ink, eg fol. 1-14v.
  • At top of recto of front flyleaf, the motto (s. xvi 2): 'aut totum aut nihil'.
  • At verso of final flyleaf, notes in an italic hand headed: 'Concio magistri wrighti Magdal in ede sancti petri 1567 3o Martij'. We can thus place the volume in Cambridge in 1567/68.
