Provenance I can discover in the book no hint of its monastic provenance. The upper R. corner of ff. 1r-2v is mutilated: probably the press-mark was there.
Additions The ornament of the volume consists of a large number of very fine initials and borders - the latter of the feathered work so characteristic of English xvth century books. The one figured initial is on f. 171r.
