Origin and Provenance

Written presumably in a Continental centre with Anglo-Saxon connections. The Paris leaves once formed part of MS Lat. 13351, a MS from Corbie (St. Germain 1275): they were bound in a miscellaneous volume at the Bibliothèque Nationale during the first half of the nineteenth century. The Vatican leaves also came from Corbie.

Script Commentary

Script is a small, rapid, Continental Anglo-Saxon minuscule written with a fine pen: is uncial, with the top curving strangely to the right; r resembles minuscule n; subscript i occurs here and there with h, m, and n.
