Manuscript waste (Provenance)
Former shelf-mark: MS Q. 387.2 M28b (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library).
Shelf-mark: Urbana, IL, University of Illinois Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Pre-1650 MS 0211.
Provenance: 1. Derived from the Trumbull papers that passed to the 7th Marquess of Downshire, as per his sale (Sotheby's, 30 July 1963) -- 2. Purchased from Zeitlin, April 1964.
Origin: Presumably copied in England in 1626 by Ralph Crane.
Watermarks are readily visible on the front fly-leaf (two pillars) and on the first leaf (coat of arms with a crown); neither conforms precisely to the examples found in Heawood.
Last leaf ruled but blank.
Binding: Bound in gold-tooled calf, perhaps 18th-century, with ornamental devices on both covers and remnants of blue silk ties. Includes binding waste from a medieval manuscript fragment (15th-century), used as spine lining. Content suggests that it was a charter or deed. The segment exposed just after the front fly-leaf appears to read: "[...] [et] exitus [et] p[ro]ficua inde p[ro]ven[ientes] p[er]cepit seu h[ab]uit p[er]ceperunt seu h[ab]uerunt [et] compu[tum] inde nondum reddiderunt. Et p[er] sacr[amentu]m eor[um]dem probor[um] [...]" The segment exposed just before the back fly-leaf reads: "Henricus Dei gr[ati]a rex Angl[ie] [et] Ffranc[ie] [et] d[omi]n[u]s Hib[er]n[ie] ... p[er] l[itte]ras suas patent[es] dat[us] [...]"
Script: Written in a clear secretary hand.
Layout: Frame-ruled in red.
Alternative title from the 1644 imprint.
