Possessor, provenience: the decoration suggests that the manuscript was made in Ferrara; it may have been transferred to the library of Matthias Corvinus from the library of Johannes de Zredna (1408?–1472) after the latter's death; whether it was part of the Fugger library is doubtful; it can be found in the 1582 catalogue of the Munich court library, although not as a corvina
