The binding of this manuscript is decorated in what is called the "fanfare style." The style was created in Paris around 1570 and continued to be imitated on bindings up to the seventeenth century. The style received its name in the nineteenth century when it came into popularity again. The center medallions on the front and back covers of the binding give the first and last names of a late sixteenth-century owner, Guillemette Bezard.
This manuscript has been dated to ca. 1460.
