Ralph of Diceto (d. 1202) gained an education in Paris, and became a dean of St. Paul's Cathedral in 1180. He wrote a variety of historical works. The 14th-century inscription at the top of this page is apparently a copy of the description of this volume from a library catalogue. Below this in a rectangle is the pressmark, 'In A. xi', typical of manuscripts from the library of St. Mary's, the Benedictine abbey of York.
