Immediate Source of Acquisition

Belonged to Samuel Knight DD, prebend of Ely and rector of Bluntisham, Hunts. Knight may have obtained some of them from Strype with a view to completing his projected memoir of the historian. From Knight they descended to John Percy Baumgartner, who presented them to the Library in 1859.
