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. In the top margin of the last page of the text is the added ownership inscription of the Augustinian priory of St. Mary Overy, Southwark: 'Liber beate Marie Overey', while at the lower edge of the facing flyleaf are two caucio notes, indicating that the manuscript was deposited by Richard Burghhull in the Trinity chest in 1449, and by John Herryson in St. John's chest 1454, when it was valued at 6 shillings and 8 pence.
