Content: Matthew Paris, Liber additamentorum, a collection of original literary treatises and historical documents he assembled to support his research, rearranged in the 14th century (with later additions) and by Sir Robert Cotton.
Matthew Paris illuminated the first scenes (ff. 2v–4v) and another St Albans artist completed two drawings (ff. 4v, 5r). In the late 14th century a St Albans artist finished the project based on the instructions left by Matthew Paris in the lower margins.
