Sydney Cockerell recorded in his diary, 9 May 1895, that Morris was examining it at Kelmscott House and noted that it has “an illuminated border to every page.” On 13 June Cockerell went to the British Museum “to look up Tiptoft pedigree.” It was exhibited at the Society of Antiquaries in June 1896.
