Other Finding Aids

Falconer Madan, et al., A summary catalogue of western manuscripts in the Bodleian Library at Oxford which have not hitherto been catalogued in the Quarto series (7 vols. in 8 [vol. II in 2 parts], Oxford, 1895-1953; reprinted, with corrections in vols. I and VII, Munich, 1980), vol. V, no. 27718.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

A summary catalogue of western manuscripts in the Bodleian Library at Oxford which have not hitherto been catalogued in the Quarto series vol. 5 implies that "this volume may very possibly have come in 1707, with dr. Hody's books, as he was connected with the publication of the edition of Malala in 1691." Later corrections however suggest that this volume was acquired with MS. Auct. T. infr. 2. 5 in a purchase made in 1672.
