This book appears to have been given to the Damenstift at Elten by a young lady called Stijnken (Christina) Kispringhis. It later passed to the convent of St Agnes in Emmerich. The church and convent buildings at Elten were destroyed in 1585 and the convent was moved to Emmerich for some years.[1] Elten is now part of the town of Emmerich on the German-Dutch border.
The book probably entered the Chapter Library by purchase in the nineteenth century following the closure of the convent.
