The provenance as detailed indicates a connection to Cesarini whose manuscripts and papers were aquired by the Earl of Orford. In fact the obvious closeness of the compiler to Henry, shown by the detail in the accounts, gives this collection (with its Provenance) both substance and importance.View additional info »
