Written in a German centre under Anglo-Saxon influence. Belonged to Fulda; the typical Fulda shelf-mark 'VIII or.15' (saec. XV) stands on the outside of the ancient leather cover. Acquired by Remigius Faesch (†1667), professor at Basel, ca. 1630.

|Contents||Isidorus, Synonyma (2).|
Script is a rather gauche compressed mixed Anglo-Saxon majuscule: a is almost regularly minuscule; d has two forms; n and R are the rule; s is more frequent than ꞅ. An Anglo-Saxon minuscule hand wrote over the erased fol. 23v. German glosses scratched in with a stylus in Insular minuscule occur passim. Our volume is probably the 'Sinonima sancti Esidori' mentioned in the oldest Fulda catalogue (see CLA 7.842).
