Latin Verses by John Gower and “John of Bridlington” in a Piers Plowman Manuscript (BL Add. 35287)

Identifies two Latin items on the final verso of MS M of B as coming from Gower’s Cronica Tripertita and The Prophecy of John of Bridlington (it is unclear whether they are in the same hand). The presence of the Gower tag here is particularly remarkable given George Shuffelton’s discovery, reported in the PPl Electronic Archive edition of the manuscript by Eliason and others, that the recto of this folio contains yet another Gowerian Leonine verse.
