The thirteenth-century St Denis ex-libris and the press-marks in well-known St Denis librarians' hands saec. XIV–XV are seen on. fol. 1. Later belonged to Antoine Loisel, then to Notre Dame, where it bore the number '34², olim B.6'. Passed into the Royal Library in the second half of the eighteenth century.

Script Commentary

Script is a regular Caroline minuscule which strongly recalls that of MS Paris Lat. 15304 + Lat. 15305 (CLA 5.665): noteworthy is the f-like form of x; rt and st are practically the only ligatures used.
