Provenance: Duplicate from the Royal Library, Munich; ‘Dupl', ‘4879' and ‘9' in pencil on a1r. Probably purchased in 1885, as were virtually all of the books in neighbouring shelfmarks (Auct. 4Q 6.6 to Auct. 4Q 6.50); the binding would also suggest a date of acquisition in that period.
SHELFMARK: Auct. 4Q 6.43.
