It is the same edition as the one said to have been in the Shrine of Edward the Confessor in Westminster Abbey but which does not survive. This work was part of the original book collection at Lyme Park when it was handed over to the National Trust in 1946 and it enhances the book's national importance to see it redisplayed in the house where it resided for five centuries. This work was acquired with assistance from the Wolfson Foundation.
Sir Piers Leigh V; by descent to Lord Newton.
