The volume has been traced to one of a group of manuscripts acquired in Rome by the important philhellene Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guilford (1766-1827) and subsequently purchased at his sale (Evans, 8 December 1830) by Sir Thomas Phillipps (1792-1872) (Phillipps number: 7372). The volume saw the market again with the purchase of Phillipps manuscripts by HP Kraus of New York.
