Bibl.: Alfr. Krarup: Katalog over Universitetsbibliotekets Haandskrifter, II, 1935; KO p.167;
This fine manuscript is unpublished, and completely unknown to modern research. In 1935 was it in the catalogue called a "Breviarium Latinum from the 13th Century" (sic!). The style of the miniatures is closely related to a number of manuscripts which Raymond Limousin classified as "Atelier de Jean Bourdichon", (Paris BN Smith-Lesouëf Ms.34, Paris Bibl. de l'Arsenal Ms. 428 and Innspruck Universitätsbibl. Ms. 281]. Both style and iconography reveals a fine artist who was intimately familiar with the early workshop of Jean Bourdichon. All the calendar-illustrations are drawn from the same models later used by Bourdichon himself after he had been appointed painter to the French Royal Court by Charles VIII.
