1. Fol. 6. 'Ælfrici praesulis luculentum valde glossarium, mihi passim dicitur gl. R; non modo in gratam memoriam docti illius generosique Rubenii Antwerpiani mihi benigne prorsus venerabiles membranas indulgentis et communicantis: verum etiam ut praesens hoc glossarium commodius distinguatur ab altero Ælfrici glossario, quod in bibliotheca Cottoniana [probably Jul. A. ii] sic adnexum ipsi Grammaticae deprehenditur...', beg. 'Vomer vel vomis, sceap', with prefatory verses beg. 'Praesulis hic redolent Ælfrici lypsana summi' (p. xi); hence printed in Thomas Wright's Volume of Vocabularies (1857), p. 15.
