On a1r of item 1 a note in the hand of John Baker: ‘Veni Sancte Spiritus | Sancta Fredeswida | Ora pro nobis Amen'. Entries in two different fifteenth/sixteenth-century English hands on K12v of item 1 and A1r of item 2. On endleaf following item 2 a note in a fifteenth/sixteenth-century English hand on astronomical distances. On endleaf following item 3: ‘Omnis ierosolomitizans constantinapolizabit | omnis Anthiochinizans est ierosolomitizans | ergo omnis ierosolomitizans constantinapolizabit. Iste silogismus debet proferri vno anhelitu et quisquis eum sic protulerit indicabitur non supra satis bibisse' in a fifteenth/sixteenth-century English hand.

Provenance: John Baker (fl. before 1605); on a1r of item 1, ‘Iste liber attinet ad Johannem Baker'. Item 1 was acquired by 1605: see James, Catalogus (1605), 352; items 1 and 2 are not located in James, Catalogus (1605) but, as item 2 is in James, ‘Catalogus' (1602/3), fol. 30r with the shelfmark ‘M 63', they were probably all present by 1605 as all three items occur with the same shelfmark (M 6.3) in James, Catalogus (1620), 42, 329, and 437.

Former Bodleian shelfmarks: Arts M 6.3 Med.; BB 8 Med.

SHELFMARK: Auct. 2Q 5.3(3).
