The manuscript was probably the property of the Teutonic Order.

The host volume belonged first to the castle library in Königsberg and in the yaers 1827-1944 to the Royal (then State) and University Library inKönigsberg.
Then, as a result of the evacuation of the most valuable collections of the library and the change of state borders after the second world war, the evacuated books found themselves in the territory of the Polish state. In July 1946, by the decision of the Ministry of Education, they were transferred to the University Library in Toruń.

Persons and Institutions 1. Prince Albrecht's Hohenzollern castlelibrary in Königsberg; 2. Royal (since 1918: State) and University Library in Königsberg; 3. University Library in Toruń
