Garrett MS. 64 is probably from Alsace, possibly the Metz area (see Script), but is of unknown early provenance. An unidentified American sale catalogue description formerly pasted on the inside front cover lists this manuscript as no. 380, and quotes a 1904 publication (prices given in dollars). Robert Garrett (1875-1961), of Baltimore, Maryland, Class of 1897, purchased the manuscript in March 1925 from the New York bookseller Erhard Weyhe (1882-1972), House of Weyhe. Garrett's gift to the Princeton University Library, 1942.
