1. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01086
Description: - ff. i + 177 + i - Bound, s. XIX, in red velvet with silver filigree clasp. - Written in the middle of the fifteenth century, possibly in Bruges for export to England. Coat of arms placed in the lower margins of ff. 7v-8, very slightly overlapping the flowers of the border decoration: per pale, 1 argent a chevron or between 3 pheons the two in chief lying fesswise point to point and that in base erect sable; 2 or two lions combatant argent supporting a bezant. The first (although with a chevron gules) is given by J. Papworth, Ordinary of British Armorials (London 1874) 462 as Kyffin, co. Salop, agreeing with the note on f. 177 by the widow of "Gyffrey Kyffen" (d. 1479). Later notes on the same leaf show that the manuscript belonged to John Somers, 1st Baron Somers (1650/1-1716), whose library passed to his brother-in-law, Sir Joseph Jekyll (1663-1738); his sale, London, 26 February 1739, probably n. 5000 to James West (1704?-1772); the West sale, London, Langford, 27 February 1773, possibly n. 78. Thomas Windus acquired the book (ca. 1820?) from the booksellers John and Arthur Arch; the name Ansley Windus is neatly penned on f. i above an erasure; Thomas Windus sale, 27 February 1858, n. 197. A partially erased note reads "I bought this book at Leigh and Sotheby at auction for…" and seems to be signed "W. L__?___"; another partially erased note, in blue ink, appears to read "T__?___ Henry __?___." Sale of Edwin Henry Lawrence, Sotheby's, 9 May 1892, n. 299 to Quaritch. Belonged to Robert Hoe: Bierstadt (1895) 33 ; Cat. (1909) pp. 21-22 ; his sale, Anderson, New York, 1911, pt. I, n. 2128 to G. D. Smith; precise date and source of acquisition by Henry E. Huntington unknown. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H. Rouse et al., Guide to Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the Huntington Library (San Marino, 1989). De Ricci, 90.

2. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 01144
Description: - ff. ii + ii + 193 + ii + ii - Bound by Lortic for Robert Hoe in brown mosaic morocco in 1884, from a previous binding of "old velvet," according to a note on f. iii signed by Hoe; red morocco doublures; gilt edges. - Written in the middle of the fifteenth century in Flanders, probably Bruges, for export to England; on f. 1, s. XVI, is the note "Jesus have marci a pon us/ Johannes busshells boke tayller," and below this, the name "Arthur," erased. The book was n. 606 in an English book dealer's catalogue, and later, apparently, belonged to Dawson Turner (1775-1858), who signed a slip of paper quoting Sir Francis Palgrave, Sir Frederic Madden, and Mr. Shaw on the date and origin of the manuscript; these opinions are dated 1832 and 1835; Dawson Turner sale, London, 7 March 1853, n. 1880 to Pickering. Robert Hoe signed and dated the same slip mentioned above with his date of purchase (?), 1872. See Robert Hoe, A Lecture on Bookbinding as a Fine Art, delivered before the Grolier Club February 26, 1885 (Grolier Club 1886) pl. 58; Grolier Club (1892) n. 17; Bierstadt (1895) p. 25; Cat.
