Origin and Provenance

Written presumably in France, and probably in the North. According to a late eighteenth-century entry on the back of the cover, the volume comes from the Strasbourg cathedral, whence came many other volumes in the Bongars collection. Donated in 1632 to the city of Bern by J. Gravisset, Bongars’ heir.
