Copy number: A-547(1)

Binding: Seventeenth/eighteenth-century(?) English, blind-tooled mottled calf. Formerly chained: staple-marks of a hasp at head of the upper cover. On both covers double fillets form an outer frame, and an inner rectangle, the latter bordered with a floral roll and with a fleuron at each of the outer corners. Parchment front endleaf, with staple-marks of a hasp at the tail, these rust marks continuing through the first few leaves: this suggests that an earlier binding was stapled at the tail, rather than at the head; this probably took place when Thomas Sisson gave the book to Balliol in c.1518. Number ‘17', and author and title, in a contemporary hand, on fore-edge; the gold stamp of the Bodleian Library on both covers.

Size: 300 × 220 × 117 mm.

Size of leaf: 287 × 197 mm.

Initials and paragraph marks are supplied in red. Capital strokes in red.

Provenance: Robert Cooke (fifteenth century); inscription on parchment flyleaf: ‘Magister Robertus Cok legauit hunc [librum] sub forma ista'. Thomas Sisson (fl. 1495-1543); Emden, BRUO notes that N. R. Ker suggested to him that Cooke bequeathed Auct. 7Q 2.29 to Sisson, although the inscriptions do not appear to support such a statement. Balliol College, Oxford; left to the College by Sisson; inscription on parchment endleaf: ‘Magister Thomas Cysson post eius descessum(!) Collegio Bawlliolense Oxon' cathenandum'. Date of acquisition unknown.

Former Bodleian shelfmarks: T 10. 17 Th.; Z 1. 9 Th.; Auct. P 1.12.

SHELFMARK: Auct. 7Q 2.29.
