From dealer description: Written in the later decades of the 15th century, probably ca. 1480-1500, in central or southwestern France, as indicated by the style of the script and the watermark. Popular in 15th century Benedictine and Cistercian monasteries, the text is likely copied for a monastic library. Only one sale of this text is listed in the Schoenberg Database. Medieval shelf-mark, bottom margin, ff. 1 and 83, “B 63,” in both cases preceded by four erased words, “C de C.” Armorial bookplate, front flyleaf for the Bibliothèque de Monseir le Baron de Caix de Saint-Aymour,” with motto, “Fortior in adversis.” the Baron Amédée Caix de Saint Aymour was the mayor of Corbie (1863-1920), educated at the l’Ecole des chartes and at the l’Ecoles des langues orientales. Octagonal paper label on front cover edged in blue from 19th century French book deal, “Manuscript, 13ième siècle.” Purchased by Western Michigan University Special Collections from Les Enluminures (TM 432).

Binding: 
Bound in an unusual binding, probably contemporary, made from two pieces of brown leather, sewn together horizontally, which is stitched over pasteboards formed from ten leaves from other manuscripts (now partially visible at the top, front, and along the fore edge, back). The leather turn-ins are covered with a paper leaf, now fragmentary, in the front, and by leather in the back. Part of this leather is broken off, and is now laid in, sewn on three leather bands, stitched through the inside of the covers in a “v” pattern. Lighter brown leather (sheepskin?) spine, probably later, with three raised bands with the title in gilt between the first and second in a gold square, “Regl de S. Benoit Manuscr 13 Sciecl [sic].” Remains of leather tie, front cover, with a hole in the back cover, presumably from another tie, now missing, and showing considerable wear, including a second small hole in the back cover near the spine, and with corners and some edges of the leather covers worn away. Middle of each gathering reinforced with parchment strips from another manuscript.
