Custodial History

Copied by a single scribe, employed by Edward Paston of Norfolk. This set of part-books (359-363) formerly belonged to Joseph Warren who presumably bought it at the sale of Benjamin Cooke’s library in 1845 (see note on flyleaf of 363: 'Dr Bjn Cook’s sale'). The books were repaired in 1922 at the British Museum when fresh backs had to be provided although the original covers were retained.
