MS. Savile 22
Held at the Weston Library

  • Request

The astronomical tables of Arzachel (fol. 13), preceded by lectiones, beg. 'In nomine domini scito quod annus lunaris sit ex cccliiij diebus ...' (fol. 1). The book seems to come from the same scriptorium, and to have been written about the same time as MS. Savile 23. There are contemporary marginalia throughout in a French court hand.
