Written in an Anglo-Saxon centre in Germany, probably in the Main region. The dismembered volume was used for book-bindings. One folio, the last leaf of quire 5, was acquired by the Vienna Library. The Glazier leaf formerly belonged to Max Kammerer of Wartenberg near Munich and was purchased by William S. Glazier of New York in 1954.
