Ownership inscription: "אי"ש ג"ר" [=אברהם י"ש גרציאנו] (fol. 393r); contract of purchase of the MS: "שמואל אב"י יזיי"א בכמ"ר משה אב"י זלה"ה" מכר "זה הערוך לכמ"ר זכריה ... בכמ"ר בנימין פנצי ב שבט ריא לפ"ק ... פה כרך מונטנייאנו" (fol. 394v); censors' signatures : Luigi da Bologna, 1599; Renato da Mod[en]a, 1621; Gir. da. Durazzano 16[..] (fol. 395v)

Matteo Luigi Canonici's (1727-1805) collections passed to his brother Giuseppe, and on his death in 1807 to Giovanni Perissinotti and Girolamo Cardina, who divided them. To the former fell the MSS., then about 3550 in number, and, after many attempts to sell them, the Bodleian became the purchaser of the greater part in 1817, for £5444 5s. 1d., or including incidental expenses about £6030, the largest single purchase ever made by the Library. The formal list of volumes handed over was signed on May 18, 1817, and the books probably arrived later that year.
