Dating back to the early 12th Century and probably realized in Italy, this codex is one of the lesser known testimonies of this type.
Originally, the manuscript belonged to the collection of Carlo Morbio of Milan.
It consists of 98 folios with 55 feather-pen drawings enriched with pigments in red, ochre and yellow hues.
The illustrations are one of the major attractions of this work, since they include an archaic and unusual version of the iconography mostly found in other testimonies of the series, making this manuscript a rare and precious object for bibliophiles.
Written in Caroline and Beneventan script.
