Origin and Provenance

Written probably in South France. Was at Lyon by the ninth century as the Florus corrections prove. Belonged to the 'Comtes de Lyon’. The Paris part, which had been stolen by Libri, was acquired by the Bibliothèque Nationale in 1888. The ownership-mark 'Est sancti Petri de Perosio' on fol. 19v is a Libri forgery.
