  • TCD MS 64 was presented to the College by Franc Sadleir, provost of Trinity College Dublin (died 1851), possibly in exchange for old uncatalogued annuals (see Bernard Meehan, 'A note on the Dublin Apocalypse (Trinity College Dublin MS 64)' in Scriptorium 38, (1984), 82-83, p. 83) . 'Born in 1775, Sadleir became a Fellow of Trinity College in 1805. He was Professor of Hebrew from 1822 to 1825, Professor of Mathematics from 1825 to 1836, and Librarian from 1821 until appointed Provost of the College in December 1837' (Bernard Meehan, 'A note on the Dublin Apocalypse (Trinity College Dublin MS 64)' in Scriptorium 38, (1984), 82-83, p. 82). The ownership of the codex prior to Sadleir remains unknown.
