From 1519 to the mid 17th century the book belonged to the House of Saint Bridget in Rome.
In the mid 17th century the book came to Chartreuse Notre-Dame-du-Val-de-Benédiction in Villeneuve-lés-Avignon where it was until the library was confiscated during the French revolution in 1793 and subsequently sold in 1852. There is a library stamp in the lower margin of f. L2r with the text ‘CARTVSIAE VILLENOVAE’.
Between 1852 and 2018 the book was owned by private collectors.
