Custodial History

The volume is the third part of a four-part planned work, of which the first two parts seem to have been completed and the fourth may well have been. It had become detached from its fellows by March 1718, when it was sold at an auction by Thomas Corbet at the corner of Fleet Bridge. It bears the ownership inscription of a Mr Munday in an eighteenth century hand.
