Some marginal notes in a number of sixteenth-century humanist hands in item 1 only.

Provenance: Item 1 appears in James, Catalogus (1605), 367 (P 4.4 [Art]). Item 3 belonged to John Barcham (1572?–1642) who donated it to the Bodleian in 1602; on a piece of paper inserted at the beginning of item 3: ‘Liber vniversitatis Oxon[iensis] ex dono Johannis Barchami Collegii Corporis Christi Oxon[iensis] Socii. Olim A 3 7 Th | A 20 7 Th'; A 3. 7 Th is the shelfmark in James, Catalogus (1605), 3; given that an undated edition of Savonarola, entitled De omnibus mundi balneis, appears in James, Catalogus (1620), 444, with the shelfmark A 3. 7 Th. (still, also, the shelfmark of item 3 in 1620), it must be assumed that this was item 6, and that it and item 3 (at least) were travelling together when they reached the Library, so that item 6 was, also, acquired in 1602.

Former Bodleian shelfmarks: P 5.4 Art; H 4.11 Art.

SHELFMARK: S 3.10(6) Jur.
