Provenance: William Worcester (sixteenth/seventeenth century); inscription on vv8r in a sixteenth-century hand: ‘Thys ys sr Wyllyam Wurcetres boke the wich he purpa[ ] | Wylnott syll for no Ryches therfore the reder may byleue contynually as ye doth fynde'. Acquired before 1674: listed in Hyde, Catalogus, I 252, with shelfmark 4° F 33 Art., but dated to 1505. This date is probably derived from the last item in the volume as it was then bound, namely the De patientia. Item 2 in the description is probably now Auct. 2Q 5.24(3) (B‑045), namely the Contra poetas impudice loquentes. The ruled scoring in black ink on Cc6v of B‑045 matches the scoring on [*1v –2r] of this item, and the leaves are the same size.

Former Bodleian shelfmark: 4° F 33 Art.

SHELFMARK: Auct. 2Q 5.29.
