Egerton 3314 f. 1 Notes
Notes
Description: Notes on an originally blank folio, including a statement of the author and title in 13th-century script in the middle at the top ('Adthelardus de compoto'), which is recognisable as a Christ Church, Canterbury inscription. Below this is a note of a flood in Thanet and Sheppy, in 1394, confirming continued ownership in Kent in the 14th century. The astrological symbol for Jupiter in the extreme top right corner is a characteristic marking of books owned by John Dee (died 1608), a famous alchemist in the court of Elizabeth I. 
Origin: England, S. E. (Canterbury)
