Babel MS 33
Two near-complete folios survive as pastedowns in one binding. Their appearance suggests a workmanlike copy of Bersuire's encyclopaedia, with the scribe correcting and annotating his work.

History and further information
The latest date for the roll on the binding is recorded by Oldham as 1542 which suggests that this book was imported to England from Basel and bound soon after its publication in 1540. This gives a fairly precise date for the dismantling of this manuscript.
