Chapter Summary

This appendix section presents group D navicula manuscripts in English and Latin. References within the texts indicate that this manuscript can best be dated to c. 1440, and it is linked by dialect to the area around Chester. There are several main hands, one of which is linked to the Augustinian convent of Warrington by a note on weather prognostications. Later, the manuscript was owned by William Fitton from Gawsworth, Cheshire, and was given to Aberdeen University Library in 1723 by Robery Barclay of Urry. The text here is transcribed from the only copy of the group D text that is currently known: AB. The appendix contains the composition of navicula, division of signs and the inscriptions of months by the calendar.

Keywords: chester; navicula manuscript; weather prognostications; William Fitton
