Written in North France, probably in the Laon region, where two other manuscripts of this type have been preserved (MSS Leon 137 and 423). Was used at Corbie by the beginning of the ninth century, to judge by the Maurdramnus corrections. A seventeenth century Corbie ex-libris is seen on fol. Av. Migrated to St Germain des Prés with other Corbie manuscripts in the seventeenth century, where it was numbered '738, olim 226' (fol. C). Acquired by the Bibliothèque Nationale during the Revolution.
