The report is on an illuminated manuscript over which there had been some controversy as to its age. The Trustees of the British Museum had asked for a report from several distinguished scholars to resolve the matter. This copy had been in the University of Bristol's library at one time as evidenced by the bookplate and library markings. Three photo-engravings are present and clean. Very worn, disbound. pages are clean and easily read.
