Sotheby Lot

Part of SL263?


See notes to Babson Ms. 434, which constitutes the bulk of SL263. The University of Texas consider this to be a leaf from SL263, but given the extreme disorder of that lot and the fragmentary nature of this manuscript, the claim cannot easily be either verified or refuted. However, this document is clearly closely related to Babson Ms. 434, even if it was not originally part of the same work.
