Provenance
Provenance According to manuscript collector Cornelius Duyn, he had received this book from Catherina Oisterlinga, widow of Jacobus van Mierop, son of Vincent van Mierop (1469-1550), who was treasurer general of the Netherlands. Between 1613 and 1629, Cornelius Duyn donated it to Heribertus van Rosweyde (1569-1629), who bequeathed it to the museum Bollandianum. Sold to the abbey of Tongerlo in 1788. Bought at an auction by K. van Hulthem (1764-1832) in 1825. Van Hulthem's collection was acquired by the Royal Library at Brussels in 1837.
