|Administrative History||The original provenance is unknown. The volumes, from various sources, were found together in one storage area in the library. Some items appear to fill gaps in records series in other collections and may be amalgamated with them, in time. It is possible that some of this material may have come to the University via Marischal College as part of the bequest left to the College by Sir William Fordyce (1724–1792).|
MS2872/1 has been discovered to be part of a series of volumes which forms MS 2127. It has therefore been reunited with these volumes and given the reference number MS 2127/10.
