It is no. 116 in Forshall and Madden (I p. lv).
Additions:There are marginal notes on the prologue by Geoffrey Blithe,
Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield (1503-33), adverse to Wycliffe. See especially ff. 14v, 15r: on the latter page
is a Parkerian note:
“This is the hand of notes of Galfride Blith sum-time Busshop of Lich. and Couentry as before.”
In Foxe Acts and Monuments IV 186 articles are cited
which were produced against Richard Hun (1514):
“Dr Hed did now also after his death collect certaine others out of the
prologue of his English Bible remaining then in the Bishop's hands”
(Fitzjames of London). Many or all of the passages in the Prologue to which these
Articles refer are marked or annotated in our MS. by Blithe. It has been
suggested that this may be Hun's copy (cf. Church Quarterly Review, 1901, p. 292).
