Richard Fishacre (d.1248) was a London Dominican, but not much is known about him, and there are no surviving copies of some of the works which he is reported to have written. More copies of his Commentary on Peter Lombard's 'Sentences' survive than any other of his texts. The 'Sentences' were an extremely influential and widely studied collection of excerpts from early patristic writers. On the flyleaf facing the start of the text is an added inscription stating that the manuscript belonged to Brother Geoffrey Willingham, of the Augustinian priory of St. Mary Overy, Southwark. This was subsequently altered to state that it belonged to Trinity Hall, Cambridge. Below this, a later added inscription states that it was bound by Brother William Redymer.
