Origin and Provenance

Written presumably in France. Was early united to the manuscript of Gregory's letters described in the previous item, as the composite volume is listed in a twelfth-century Corbie catalogue as ‘Epistolae de registro cum exceptione’. Came to Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris, in 1638, where it bore the numbers 169 and 858. Acquired by Peter Dubrowsky in 1791 and by the Imperial Library in 1805.

Script Commentary

Script is a small, neat early Caroline minuscule with three forms of a; the ligature ri is very frequent and seems to be the only one.
