51. San Marino, Huntington Library, EL 26 A 13
Description: - ff. ii + iv + 127 + i + i - Bound, ca. 1840, in purple morocco, gold tooled with the Bridgewater crest stamped on front and back covers; marbled endpapers; gilt edges. - Partially (ff. ii verso-iii) copied by, and belonged to, John Shirley (ca. 1366-1456); his "bookplate" on f. v verso, "iesu mercy/ margarete & beautrice/ ma ioye M [or A? surmounted by a crown] Shirley." See A. I. Doyle, "More Light on John Shirley," Medium Aevum 30 (1961) 93-101, and, for a brief mention of manuscripts connected with Shirley, E. P. Hammond, English Verse between Chaucer and Surrey (Duke University Press 1927) 191-94. See also Troilus and Criseyde: Geoffrey Chaucer, a facsimile of Corpus Christi College Cambridge MS 6 with introductions by M. B. Parkes and E. Salter (Cambridge 1978) 10-11 with a plate reproducing Lydgate's couplet on the King, Queen and People from 3 Shirley manuscripts (including EL 26 A 13, art. 1); A. I. Doyle, "English Books In and Out of Court from Edward III to Henry VII," in English Court Culture in the Later Middle Ages, ed. V. J. Scattergood and J. W. Sherborne (London 1983) 175 n. 34 points out that the queen in Lydgate's poem is Henry VI's mother, Catherine, and so could be 1422-37. Another plate of Shirley's hand in P. J. Croft, Autograph Poetry in the English Language (New York 1973) vol. 1, n. 2 from London, Brit. Lib., Add. 16165. Shirley probably filled in "Aluredo Corneburgh de Camera Regis" on f. 115; this leaf reproduced in Doyle, "English Books. . .," pl. 17. Avery Cornburgh, whose name occurs in varying forms on f. iv ("aure kornbrou" or "awrese") was a Yeoman of the Chamber to Edward IV; see A. R. Myers, The Household of Edward IV (Manchester 1959) 243, n. 60. He married Beatrice Lynne between 1459 and 1467; her sister, Margaret Lynne, had become Shirley's second wife between 1421 and 1441. The names of Margaret and Beatrice are incorporated into Shirley's "bookplate" on f. v verso; a sketch on f. iv of a griffin passant may refer to Lynne, another on the same page of a boar may refer to Cornburgh; see Doyle, "English Books. . .," p. 177. Other fifteenth century notes include on ff. iii verso and iv verso, "Elyzabeth Gaynesford," and on ff. iii verso and iv, "necolas gaynsford" (also spelled "gaynford"); this Nicholas Gaynsford may have been the Usher to the Chamber of Edward IV and his Queen; see J. C. Wedgwood and A. Holt, History of Parliament (London 1936-38) 1:368-69. On f. iii verso, "Ryght truste and welbeloued Suster J.P." On back flyleaf verso, s. XVI, a note in an italic script listing the chapters of Hoccleve's De Regimine Principum and a recipe in a secretary script. On f. v, pressmark "Z:/2./2." in the hand of John Egerton (1622-86), 2nd Earl of Bridgewater, with the last number corrected to "10" at a later date, possibly by John Egerton (1646-1701), 3rd Earl of Bridgewater. Printed on a square yellow slip of paper glued to f. ii verso, "MSS. No. 4." Acquired by Henry E. Huntington in 1917 with the Bridgewater Library (see pp. 5-7). - 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, 131-32.

Amen" ( Hanna, "Addenda," n. 25 ), and "William Downes mee tenet"; on f. 21, rough strapwork initials, "W[illiam] D[ownes]"; on f. 76, s. XVI#^ex#, possession note of Phillip Downes. Notes of an antipapist, s. XVI#^med#, across the upper margins of ff. 30, 60, 66, 77, 91 and 102: "Vacantur nomina paparum, Thomas Bekett & no seynt." Sixteenth century notes on f. 171 on the ownership of church lands: "The personage of Gwendrun & Stythians in ye county of Cornewall percell of ye possessions of ye late monastary of Rewley" and "The personage of Croppreadin in ye county of oxforde in the tenure of one mr chancye by leace for xxiti yeares grauntid unto hym by kinge Edward ye sixt in ye fyfte yeare of his raigne & paiethe by yeare lvili." The manuscript owes its appellation of "Stafford Gower" to the description of it by H. J. Todd, Illustration of the Lives and Writings of Gower and Chaucer (London 1810) 108-09, while in the possession of George Granville Leveson-Gower, 2nd Marquis of Stafford (aftw. 1st Duke of Sutherland), who had inherited the Bridgewater Library from his uncle, Francis Egerton, 3rd and last Duke of Bridgewater. The designation was used by Macaulay in his edition of the text (1900-01). Bridgewater bookplate on front pastedown and embossed Bridgewater library stamp on f. ii and f. 1. - 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, 132.

Early Bridgewater pressmarks on f. 1, "X/3/" in the hand of John Egerton (1622-86), 2nd Earl of Bridgewater, now cancelled, and "S,8./4." in the hand of the third Earl (1646-1701).
