Provenance The necrology was purchased by the state in 1963 from freiherr Von und Zur Mühlen on Haus Ruhr (Gemeinde Wandhofen, Landkreis Iserlohn, Regionalbezirk Arnsberg), in whose family it came out of the possession of H.H. Nunning J.U.D., canon and scholar of Vreden, 18th century historian and archeologist. He had probably received it as a gift of professor Hendrik Cannegieter (1691-1770), rector of the Latin School in Arnhem, in 1763 appointed by the States of Gelderland as historian of this province.
