Some pricking remains in the lower margins. Written by several scribes in a minuscule script in 2 sizes, the smaller used for the prologues and chapter lists and for all of Psalms. Material added in several hands, s. XIIin-med, in the script of the Canterbury / Rochester school (see N. R. Ker, English Manuscripts in the Century after the Norman Conquest, Oxford, 1960, pls. 12a, 12b, 29a): in vol.

XIV, in brown ink, with paragraph marks within the text and with arabic numerals in the margins. Bound, s. XIXin, by Charles Lewis in blue morocco, stamped with the crest of Theodore Williams (see below); gilt edges. De Ricci suggests a previous binding of white leather over wooden boards, apparently on the basis of the note, s. XVI/XVII, in vol. I, f. 1, which more probably pertains to the “Reductorium Bibliae.” Written in England in the second half of the eleventh century; later additions, s. XIIin, possibly done in Rochester. In both volumes, f. 1, thirteenth century ex libris of the Rochester cathedral priory attributing early ownership to Gundulf, bishop of Rochester, 1077-1108. Marginal note in lead, vol. II, f. 134, “Dominus Gilbertus episcopus scit bene cantare, deus eum litera dicat” may refer to Gilbert Glanville, bishop of Rochester, 1185-1214; other notes in the same hand, f. 192v. Listed, ca. 1130, in the Rochester library catalogue which forms the second part of the Textus Roffensis, reproduced by P. Sawyer, Textus Roffensis Part II.

Johnson, eds., The Lumley Library: The Catalogue of 1609 (London 1956) p. 48, n. 111. At some time thereafter the book moved to the continent where it appears in the collection of the Amsterdam theologian Herman van de Wall (1672-1733), who owned another manuscript bible presumably of English origin, containing the letter of Senatus, prior of Worcester, to Master Alured; van de Wall’s sale, Catalogus variorum et insignium librorum…quos…collegit et reliquit…Hermannus van de Wall…Minister Amstelodamensis; quorum publica auctio habebitur…ad diem 7 Septembris et sqq. Anno 1734…Amstelodami apud Salomonem Schouten, reported by F. L. Hoffmann in Serapeum 19 (1858) 225-28. Hereafter the bible passes through a number of private libraries and sales in the Low Countries: mentioned as “sold not many years ago by a bookseller at Louvain for 2000 florins” in John Thorpe, Customale Roffense (London 1788) p. 158. Sale of Jean-Baptiste Leplat (bookseller at Malines) in Malines, 2 May 1763, n. 3. Gasparoli sale, Antwerp, 3 September 1823, n. 2 to J. Schuylen. Belonged to the Rev.
