Provenance Saint-Germain-des-Prés: a tenth century probatio pennae ‘sce germane xpī confessor’ is seen on fol. 185 and a copy, saec. XII–XIII, of a St Germain charter was entered on foll. 206v–207. The entry ‘Petrous de domno Martino cepit istum librum anno M·CCC·IX· die cinerum’ stands on fol. 155v. Later belonged to Iassc Vossius (1618–1689).

Script is a regular and upright early Caroline minuscule by more than one hand: a has two forms with the Caroline predominating; t is often tall with straight shaft and extends over the neighbouring letters; the ligatures NT and UT occur frequently. Half-uncial is used for some headings or first lines on foll. 97 and 107; half-uncial letters also occur here and there at the beginning of sentences. Notae Tironianae occur in the margins of foll. 8, 101, et passim. Corrections by various hands saec. IX–X and XII. Probationes pennae saec. IX–XI on fol. 205v.
