Provenance: Inside the front cover is the bookplate of the Hon. Frederic North (later the fifth Earl of Gilford). On North, see Partridge (1975). An Ivan Mičurin was in Britain in 1701-1714: see Cross (1980): 147. Count Alexandr Petrovič Apraksin (c. 1690-1725) was here in 1709-1716: see Cross (1980): 152-153. Acquisition: After the sale of Frederic North's book in 1830 the MS was bought by the British Museum; bears a British museum stamp.
