Names of early owners are: s.

Said in the Rosenbach description in Library files to have belonged to Dr. John Dee (1527-1608), but there is no evidence of this in the manuscript; the book does not appear in the Dee's catalogue, nor is it accepted by R.

13. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00744
Description: - ff. 68 - Bound, s. XVI-XVII, in old limp leather; much repaired. - Written in England, its various parts at different times: the date of 1386 in the Easter table is the date of composition rather than the date of this manuscript, whose first 2 quires were probably copied towards the middle of the fifteenth century; the Hoccleve section was copied by the poet himself during the first quarter of the century; the 2 parts of the inventory on the back flyleaf are dated 1444 on the verso and 1463 on the recto (in the same hand). Although the inventory is not signed, it probably lists the belongings of the Filer family: the name "Thomas Fyler" occurs 3 times on the front flyleaf, f. ii; in the Easter table are birth (?) and death notices of members of the family: "Thomas Filer Obitus pater meus Anno domino Ml iiiic xxiiii," "obitus Iohn Filer 1444," "Ioha[nnes]," "Thomas," "Robertus," "Edwar[dus]," "John," "Margeret," "William," "Obitus Iohn Filer 1471 en August," "Obitus Thomas Filer In november 1473" (the last 2 entries in a different hand); note the spelling "en" for "in" in the inventory and in the obit. A Thomas Fyler appears in lists dated 1461 (twice) and 1474 in L. Lyell and F. D. Watney, eds., Acts of Court of the Mercers' Company 1453-1527 (Cambridge 1936) 52, 55, 78.

In the collection of the Earl of Ashburnham (1797-1878), Appendix n. 133, with the characteristic yellow circular label on the spine. The Appendix manuscripts sold privately in May 1897 to Henry Yates Thompson (1838-1928); his sale of the items he did not wish to retain, Sotheby's, 1 May 1899, n. 81 to Leighton. Belonged to George Dunn (1865-1912); his sale, Sotheby's, 11 February 1913, pt. I, n. 518 to Maggs. Owned by Sir Israel Gollancz (1864-1930). Acquired by Henry E. Huntington in June 1925 from A. S.

On f. 173, in the upper corner, the arms of England and France quarterly, impaling the arms attributed to Edward the Confessor (azure, a cross flory between 5 martlets or); in the outer margin, within a bordure or, quarterly, 1 and 4 argent 3 chaplets gules (Lascelles?

Lib., Ashmole 39, a copy of Lydgate's Life of our Lady. Also on f. v verso, s. XVI, "Constat Roberto plummer." The book belonged to "H.N." who had it rebound with his initials on the covers and who may have written the notes on tinctures on f. iv recto and verso. On f. iii, s. XVII, "Roger Allestry his book 1291 [sic]." Armorial bookplate, s. XIX, of Thomas William Evans, in which the first quarter (gironny of 8 argent and vert, a lion rampant gardant or) and the crest (in a charger a boar's head erased argent) correspond to those of W.
