London, Great Britain, British Library, MS Additional 31922
(Henry VIII Manuscript)

Provenance: C. 1510-20 (MB). Probably copied in London, as an anthology of repertory of court of King Henry VIII. Stevens 1952 suggests book was presentation or "library" copy for a noble amateur associated with court, perhaps Sir Henry Guildford (1489-1532) of Benenden, Kent, Controller of the Royal Household; several names scribbled on back flyleaves refer to Benenden. Later owners include Thomas Fuller, M.D. (1654-1734), of Sevenoaks, Kent (bookplate); Stephen Fuller of London (inscription, dated 1762); Archibald, 11th Earl of Eglinton (1726-96); and Sir Charles Montolieu Lamb (d. 1860), of Beauport Park, East Sussex. Purchased by British Museum from Lamb family through firm of Quaritch in 1882.
