Origin and Provenance

Written in France, and probably in the centre which produced MS Lat. 12239 (CLA 5.638). It is a curious coincidence that this manuscript contains the same text as Lat. 13347 of the same school, only in an abridged version (see preceding item). Provenance Corbie: the seventeenth-century ex-libris 'S. Petri Corbeiensis' stands on fol. 1. Later at St Germain des Prés, where it was ‘No. 1309, olim 281' (fol. 1), saec. XVIII.
