AcquisitionAlthough this manuscript has been catalogued as a Petyt Manuscript, it was actually presented by Mrs Anne Sadleir, who made the gift in 1661. Her gift was intended as a tribute to her father, Sir Edward Coke, who had studied at Inner Temple. The Petyt Collection was largely bequeathed to the Benchers of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple by William Petyt (1637-1707) in 1707.
