Custodial History

Bought by Babson College as Lot 421 at the Untermeyer sale, New York, 9 May 1940. In 2006, following the closure of the Dibner Institute, the holdings of the Babson Collection were transferred on permanent loan to the Hungtington Library, San Marino, California.

Sotheby Lot

Part of SL261?

Described in the Babson catalogue as part of SL261, the bulk of which is now Yahuda Var. 1 Ms. 21 (see notes there for the sale history) and Harry Ransom Research Center Ms. 130. This document is clearly related to those two, but whether it actually constituted part of the same lot is still unclear.
