Origin and Provenance

Written probably in a South Italian centre, to judge by the script. Was early at Fleury (a Fleury ex-libris, saec. VIII–IX, is seen on fol. 49 of the Orléans portion), where it was dismembered and used to strengthen bindings. The Leiden fragments, which are now kept separately, were formerly fly-leaves of MS Voss. Lat. Oct. 88, containing Glosses, Augustine’s De dialectica, etc., saec. X and Defensor’s Liber scintillarum, saec. XII. Pierre Daniel’s ex-libris of 1560 is seen on fol. 2. Belonged to Queen Christina and later to Isaac Vossius (1618–1689) in whose collection it bore the numbers B.41 and 270. Attention to the Bern fragment was recently called by Dr Chr. von Steiger, its custodian.
