Bloomington, Indiana University, Bloomington, Lilly Library at Indiana University,  Ricketts 2
Description: One leaf - Not bound. - C. L. Ricketts, bought from Barroux, 1930 (with a second fragment, see below); acquired by the Lilly Library with the Ricketts Collection in 1961. - De Ricci 1935, p. 618.
Notes:-Three other leaves from the same manuscript are in the library of the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, given by Jean Masson in 1925, with parts of Ecclesiasticus and Job, the prologue to the Gospels, and the epistle to the Galatians (Mn. Mas 22, 23 and 25; Cahn and Stirnemann 2007, p. 10, fig. 2). They are perhaps from the second volume of a 2-volume set. They are so remarkably similar to the Souvigny Bible that we must suppose they are the work of the same scribes and illuminators (Cahn 1996, II, pp. 53-55, no. 43).
