Custodial History

Manuscript 1453 acquired by the Bodleian Library (69). Belonged in whole or in part to Thomas Allen of Gloucester Hall.

[77. ends with 'Edwardus filius eius x', where 'f. e. x.' is over an erasure, and not by the original scribe. It is at the end of this p. (not p. 206b) that the scribe records the time he took in writing the MS. This is clearly the end of the original book (as well as that of a gathering), and is before Nov. 1283, when E. completed his 11th year. In 78, l. 4 read 'for╚Łef'. E. W. B. N.]
