Written apparently in Ireland, to judge from the character of the Insular symptoms. Belonged to Fulda; the typical Fulda pressmark 'VIII or.14' (saec. XV) is seen on the front cover. Acquired by Remigius Faesch (†1667), professor at Basel, ca. 1630.

Script is a very expert, rapid, almost cursive Irish minuscule: a is mostly open; g resembles flat-topped number 3, it is s-shaped when in ligature; m at line-end is sometimes turned sideways; r here and there occurs in the majuscule form (R); y is v-shaped.
