|Date||VIII (701 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably in France, probably in the North-east. Belonged to St Gall where it was dismembered to strengthen bindings. The Zürich leaves were taken from the binding of Zürich MS C 64; they have probably been in Zürich since 1712 when the St Gall manuscripts were transferred there.

Script is an inexpert and ungainly attempt at a minuscule based on Merovingian charters and obviously of the same family as the Corbie a-b type: b is mostly accompanied by the tag characteristic of the a-b type, except on p. 41 and 57 which are by another less expert hand; the shafts of b and l bend near the foot; m and n are cramped; majuscule N is not infrequent; u is often a suprascript flourish, the sickle-shaped form on the line is used by a corrector on p. 10; ligatures are numerous. 'Requisitum est' in Notae Tironianae is entered in the lower right-hand corner of the last page of quires, as in several early Tours manuscripts (see CLA 5.682).
