Custodial History

This beautiful manuscript is not improbably in the hand of Thomas Hunt. It is written on paper, each folio of which is stamped with the initials T. E., standing for Thomas East. East at this time owned the monopoly for selling paper ruled for music, which belonged formerly to Morley, and, before him, to Tallis and Byrd.
