Provenance: 1. Possibly owned by a member of the house of Laval or of the house of Evreux during the latter half of the 14th century. -- 2. A stamped leather label, once on the inside of the front cover of a 19th-century binding (now lost) suggests former ownership by the cathedral at Reims: "Fragment d'un manuscript servant au sacre des rois pris lors du pillage de la cathedrale de Rheims"; see Bober, p. 2, and n. 3, and Hedeman, p. 17, and n. 20. -- 3. Bookplate (now lost) of John Eliot Hodgkin; sold by Sotheby's, May 1914 (item no. 371 of sale catalog; bought by Ellis). -- 4. Bookplate (now lost) of Wilfred Merton; sold by Breslauer, 1958? (catalog 90, item no. 19, with plates of fol. 3r and 3 initials). -- 5. Purchased from H.P. Kraus, 29 May 1959 (catalog 88, item no. 23, with a plate of fol. 10v).
Origin: Likely commissioned by a female relative of Jeanne d'Evreux to commemorate the coronations of Charles IV, King of France (in 1322) and Jeanne d'Evreux (in 1326); see Hedeman, p. 16-18. The ms. was produced in France between 1326 and ca. 1330 and contains the text of the first complete, usable French ordines incorporating directions for applying the ordo; see Jackson, p. 367-370. The present codex lacks up to ten folios at the beginning and, thus, the text begins in mid-sentence. Corrections and additions in a contemporary hand are present on fols. 5r, 16v, and 17v.
