Immediate Source of Acquisition
The book belonged at first to H.W. Jermyn. On his death in 1903 it passed to his son, the Revd E. Jermyn, rector of Croughton, Brackley, who in 1911 presented it to C. Allex of Swaffham Prior. It was bought on the death of Allex by A.S. Neech of Milton, Cambridgeshire, and was thereafter acquired by Francis Jenkinson. Bequeathed to the Library by Jenkinson in 1923.
