Written in East France in a centre under Anglo-Saxon influence, to judge from script, abbreviations, and decoration, which are similar to those in MSS Lat. 2706, 12207 (CLA 5.547 and 634) and Gotha Mb. I. 75, as well as to those in the uncial MSS Lat. 152 and 17654 (CLA 5.522, 670). Belonged to Ulrich Obrecht of Strasbourg: on the modern front fly-leaf stands: 'Ulrici Obrechti praetoris regii Argentoratensis an. 1701'. It bore the number 3787.2 in the Royal collection.

Script is an angular half-uncial of a distinct type, with a like contiguous oc, uncial G with the tail hooked to the right, half-uncial ꞇ with a loop to the left and a base-line to the right; a small supra-script t stands over the second upright of N instead of an nt ligature; the lower left leg of x curves to the right; y is dotted and goes below the line. A few corrections in pre-Caroline minuscule of the North French type, saec. VIII, are seen on foll. 146, 148, 179, 189v, etc.; ‘emendanda' in the margin of fol. 155v. Instructions to a copyist 'himc (sic) scrib(e)' and 'usque hic' are seen on foll. 389v and 391.
