Written in Italy, soon after the Council of Trent (1545-63), but not
before 1572, the beginning of the reign of Gregory XIII; probably
produced at the same time as MS 366. Separated from Beinecke MS 366 before
that book received its present binding. Notes of s. xvii [?] in margins
are similar to those in MS 366. Purchased from G. Strand's Antiquariat of
Copenhagen by Richard H. Pachella; his gift to Yale in 1972.
