Comments

Contains hundreds of decorated initials, with a pre-French Revolution provenance at the Capuchin friary in Lille, a named owner, Canon Grandel, in a local eighteenth-century binding probably dateable to 1734.

Almost certainly produced in Lille, French Flanders (under Spanish rule from 1477, or (less likely) in south Flanders, possible Bruges ... Written for male use, according to th emasculine forms of the Obsecro te and O intemerata"-- frp,
