Place(s) of productionFrance?
The late dating, the lack of illustrations, and the language largely normalised make it difficult to precisely locate this MS. Lagomarsini 2014, 65-66 and 173-174 prudently indicates a generical "France". The linguistic analysis shows only a few linguistic traits that seem to point towards a Western or Northern-Western area .
