Paris: 1526.
Inscription on title page: Edward Scudamore M.D. St Georges Place Canterbury.
Inscription on second front free endpaper initialled S. J.; later inscription: The autograph of Dr Samuel Johnson?
Dr Edward Scudamore (1778–1850) gave a number of books to the Chapter Library in the 1840s.
The attribution of the earlier inscription to Samuel Johnson seems fanciful.
