For details, see Omont in our Bibliography and our Online Resources (where we give links to two scans, one at Google Books and one at the National Library; the former is a convenient way to save the entire catalogue, the latter to save a single page).  Our link "BnF" goes to the Library's record for this manuscript.

Fol. 1r.  "Hunc librum dono dedit Janus Lascaris Græcus vir ut integerrimus ita doctißimus mihi Petro [Merieli?] Constantiensi, decima Januarij, anno ab incarnatione Domini M.D.XVIII." (We have been unable to identify this Peter (Pietro?) of Konstanz; Scrivener is surely wrong when he transcribes it (Plain Introduction, 4th ed., vol. 1, p. 285, §12) as "Masieli", but the middle name might be Merceli (in the dative), and there does seem to be a name Mercelis/Mercelis; or perhaps we should read Mercell(ino) or M(a)rcel(lo) (the former perhaps a play on Sts. Marcellinus & Peter?). For the great Janus (a.k.a. Johannes) Lascaris, see Sathas and Hody in the Bibliography and Online Resources. Sathas incorrectly writes Ἰάνος for Ἰανός.)

More provenance information on 313v, which we can't entirely make out ("...Dr. Petro Angelo A..." [not Bargæo]).
