Provenance Information
1929 (End) Biblioteca del Palacio (Real Biblioteca) - Madrid - Castilla - Spain (as Biblioteca Real)
Once bound with Madrid, Biblioteca Real, ms. II-1370 as part of a more complete copy of Gonzalo Rodríguez de Escobar's Castilian translation of the Livro de falcoaria, the two codices had been split and bound separately by 1877, when the first cataloguer of the manuscript, José Gutiérrez de la Vega, reported that the two codices, both housed in the Biblioteca Real at the time, ought to be rejoined (1877, p. clxxi); black ink annotations and foliation in this manuscript are likely the work of Gutierrez de la Vega, his initials at top of f.1; this fragment went missing from the Biblioteca Real between 1923 and 1929, apparently stolen and sold by a library employee
