Description: Puzzle initial 'D'(omino), and in the upper margin, the ownership inscription of the Benedictine abbey of Bury St. Edmunds ('Liber sancti Aedmundi regis & martyris'), and the abbey library press-mark: '.C. 49.' The letters in Bury press-marks refer to the name of the author, or to the subject-matter, so the 'C' probably refers to 'Chronicle'. 
Origin: England, S. (Bury St Edmunds)
