Origin and Provenance

Written certainly in France, presumably in the Corbie region, if not at Corbie itself, to judge by the ornamentation. Mentioned in several old Corbie catalogues. Removed to Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris, in 1638, in which library it was no. 197. The manuscript was stolen during the Revolution and split into two parts. The St Petersburg part was acquired by Dubrowsky in 1791 and by the Imperial Library in 1805; the British Museum acquired its part with the other Burney manuscripts in 1818.
