'Visio monachi de Eynesham' or as the rubric of the preface 'Visio que contigit apud Eynesham tempore regis Ricardi primi Anno Domini M°. Cmo. xx/iiij° . xvjto': the monk is known to have been Edmund, and the writer of the account his brother Adam prior of Eynsham. This MS. displays the C-text, see Eynsham Cartulary, ed. by H. E. Salter, vol. ii, 1908 (O.H.S., vol. li, pp. 255-371, esp. p. 277). Some later Latin notes on similar visions are on fol. 42.

Fols. iii-iv are part of a Latin inventory of plate, cloth, etc., with their value, of the time of Henry viii: and fol. 43 is a list of testamentary bequests of money (of a London merchant?) of about 1510.
