Durham Durham University Library Cosin MS V.1.08

Creation PlaceEngland, Oxford


The acquisition of this book by Robert Graystanes (d. 1334), a Durham Priory monk who studied at Durham College, Oxford, is recorded in the inscription at the end of the book. Similar inscriptions are found in Durham Cathedral Library MSS A.I.2, B.I.10, B.II.19, B.II.20, B.II.28 and C.I.18). It is likely that the book was both written and bought in Oxford. How it left Durham Priory is not recorded, but by 1663 it was owned by George Davenport
