This article, drawing upon documents that trace the history of the extant Cancionero de Baena (Bibliothèque national de France, MS. Esp. 37; Dutton PN1) from the library of Isabel I (Segovia, 1503) to those that prove that Jorge de Beteta of Soria gave it to Philip II for the Escorial library in 1575 or 1576 and comparing its contents to works of Gonzalo Argote de Molina and BNE MSS/3788 (Dutton MN15), shows that ca.1580 there were two copies of the Cancionero de Baena in the Escorial library as well as one of a “Cancionero de Alfonso Álvarez de Villasandino,” which was in fact probably a third copy.
