ProvenancePurchased in Chester in April 1798 by Will. Robert Hay, M.A. This would seem to be William Robert Hay (1786-1861) but he would have been only twelve years old at the time. Another possibility is William Hay (b. ca. 1704); see ACAD (Venn).
AcquisitionPurchased along with with an interleaved English bible (Oxford 1679) containing manuscript notes by Matthew Henry (d. 1714) (Bib. Eng. 1679. e. 4-6). Purchased by the Bodleian from Henry Stevens on 3 February 1866 for £7 17s. 6d.
