14. 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.

22. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00937
Description: - ff. 361 - Bound, towards the middle of the s. XVIII, in dark blue French morocco for the Comte d'Argenson with his arms stamped on both covers; on the spine the same arms done with a very small tool, and a morocco lable: Bocace Des Nobles Malheureux; gilt edges and marbled endpapers. - Written in 1461-1462, according to the marginal notes and the colophon, f. 359v, by Haquinet le Pesquier. His monogram appears below his name on f. 359v and in the pen flourishes on ff. 247v and 248. The first owner of the manuscript was Jean de Croy, sieur de Chimay (d. 1473), whose coat of arms is in the initials at the beginning of each book; his motto, Souveingne vous, and device, an armoured merman, usually alternate in the chapter initials. On ff. 110v, and 196v, in the pen flourishes at the bottom of the text, the same coat of arms with the quarters reversed, encircled by the collar of the Order of the Golden Fleece. "Messire Iean de Croy, seigneur de Tour-sur-Marne" was nominated to the Order by Philip the Good; see H. Kervyn de Lettenhove, La Toison d'or (Brussels 1907) 91. Erased inscription f. 359v, "C'est le livre de Jehan boccace en__?___1 est a mo__?___oy comte __?___," which may be that of Charles de Croy, comte de Chimay until 1486, thereafter prince de Chimay, known to have signed his books in this fashion; see A. Bayot, Martin Le Franc: L'Estrif De Fortune et De Vertu (Paris 1928) 52-56, for a partial list of the manuscripts which belonged to the Croy de Chimay family; for the manuscripts in the 1614 sale of Charles de Croy (1560-1612), see E. van Even, "Notice sur la bibliothèque de Charles de Croy, duc d'Aerschot," Bulletin du Bibliophile Belge 9 (1852) 380-93 and 436-51; HM 937 does not appear in either list. Belonged to Marc-Pierre de Voyer de Paulmy Comte d'Argenson (1696-1764) whose arms are on the covers; see H. Martin, Catalogue des Manuscrits de la Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal, (Paris 1899) t. VIII "Histoire de la Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal" p. 116, where this manuscript appears on the inventory of the Comte d'Argenson. It was inherited by his son, Marc-René, Marquis de Voyer (1722-82), and sold by him to his cousin, Antoine-René de Voyer d'Argenson, marquis de Paulmy (1722-87) who listed it in his hand-written inventory, Paris, Arsenal, MS 6291, p. 99, before selling it to the book dealer Molini, evidently because he already had other finely illuminated copies of this text ("double moins beau que les autres," possibly in reference to Paris, Arsenal, MS 5193, with 150 miniatures). Belonged to Frederick William Brooke Thellusson, Baron of Rendlesham (1840-1911); his sale, Sotheby's, 27 February 1899, lot 1829 to Leighton. Owned by Charles Butler (1821-1910); his sale, Sotheby's, 5 April 1911, lot 183 to Edwards. Acquired by Herschel V. Jones of Minneapolis (1861-1928); his sale, Anderson, New York, 29 January 1919 pt.
