On 150b in the familiar rough xvth cent. hand, at top, erased, is:
Morganus canonicus de Kermerd'
and below in the same hand:
In isto vol continetur Beda super genesim
Item questiones super librum geneseos secundum Albinum
ad Sigulfum presb.
The Lanthony provenance is clear; but unless it is to be iden-
tified with 194 Notule super genesim, or 195 glose super
genesim, I do not see the book in the Catalogue.
