Origin and Provenance

Written at Corbie. This manuscript is apparently the first volume of a series continued in the ninth century, when MSS Lat. 12173–12180, 12182, and 12183 were written, partly in late Maurdramnus-type, partly in ordinary Caroline minuscule. The twelfth century Corbie ex-libris is found on fol. 1. Migrated to St Germain des Prés in the seventeenth century, where it was catalogued as 'No. 741, olim 175' (fol. 1). Entered the Bibliothèque Nationale during the Revolution.
