Provenance:
A connexion of this book with St David's is, to my mind, rendered probable by the fact that Bishop Davies was interested in the antiquities of his diocese and that he corresponded with Parker about manuscripts. A comparison of this volume with MS 199, written by John, son of Sulgen, Bishop of St David's in cent. xi, confirms very strongly the conjecture of such an origin.
