|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably at Tours, doubtless in the same scriptorium and at the same time as the part in early Caroline minuscule described in the next item, local and Anglo-Saxon scribes collaborating, as in the British Museum Egerton MS of Jerome (2.196a–b): the presence of some lines in the genuine Tours script (see next item) and the textual affinity with Vatic. Regin. Lat. 1484, a pure Tours product, support this view. Brought to Italy in 1436 by J. Jouffroy (1412–1473). In the upper margin of fol. 1 over an erasure stands the owner's mark 'Antonii Petrei Florent. Liber No. 70'. A similar entry on foll. 136 and 152v. At the foot of the last page is another erasure, probably also of an early ex-libris.
