Description: The large blank space at the left of the page was meant to have a large, decorated letter 'C' to begin the name, Cornelius. Further down the page, the history itself begins with another blank space, this time for the first letter of the name of the Greek king, Peleus. In the lower margin, an inscription identifies the book as belonging to the library of the monastery of St Augustine in Canterbury. 
Origin: England, S. E. (? Canterbury)
