'Roberti Talboti Annotationes in earn partem itinerarii Anton[ini] quae ad Britanniam pertinet', transcribed by John Stow the chronicler, as was rightly conjectured by Thomas Hearne (Itinerary of John Leland, 1711, vol. iii, p. iv), by whom this MS. was published: interleaved with blank paper.

About A.D. 1630 William Burton of Kingston-on-Thames added collations from another MS. copy of the same work then in the possession of John Langley of Broseley, co. Salop: see note by Burton on fol. 5.
