After the death of Antonio di Tommaso Corbinelli (1424), his manuscripts were first inherited by his friend Jacopo Niccolò de' Corbizzi, and then passed to the Badia Fiorentina. Here Corbinelli’s manuscripts were marked with the initials “A.C.”. Between 1808 and 1809, the Library of the Badia Fiorentina was confiscated, and all the manuscripts passed to the Laurenziana.  Cf. Baldi, Sulla storia, 371–372 Owner: Antonio di Tommaso Corbinelli ( ca. 1370–1425)  Florentine humanist. The initials of Antonio di Tommaso Corbinelli (A. C.) are visible on f. IIIr. Cf.
