Because the current accessioning system was not used until January 1986, it is not possible to know exactly the dates of acquisition of materials received before that time.

Brief printed description from unidentified bookseller pasted to inside front cover. Former owner's name "Irene Gilbert[?]" in pencil on inside front cover. A manuscript codex matching this description appears for sale in the 1857 inventory of bookseller S. Comnum; see Intelligenz-Blatt zum Serapeum, no. 18, 30 September, 1857.
