Foliation in red, beginning on f. 3, referred to the list of contents (ff. 1v-2), added in the late 14th century. However, it is not listed in any surviving inventories of the Lourvre or in descriptions of John the Good's possessions at his capture at Poitiers in 1356.
Sir John Chandos (d. 1428), landowner and administrator, grandson of Roger, baron Chandos, the lord of the manor of Fownhope, co. Hereford (see Rundle 2004).

Presented to the British Museum by George II in 1757 as part of the Old Royal Library.
Notes With over 400 illustrations, this manuscript is one of the moxt luxurious French manuscripts of the 14th century.
According to Hedeman 1991, one of nine illustrated copies made before 1350, and illuminated in at least six distinct artistic styles between c. 1335-1340, or when John the Good was between 16 and 21 years old:
I: identified with Mahiet (or Master of the Vie de Saint Louis, named after Paris, Bibliothèque nationale, fr. 5716): quires 2, 5-14, 17, 19, 22-26, 38;
II: identified with the Master of the Cambrai Missal (named after Cambrai, Bibliothèque municipale 157): quires 20-21;
III: quires 3, 4, 30;
IV: quires 15, 16, 18, 21, except bifolium 234-239;
V: quire 28;
VI: bifolium 234-39.
Marginal annotation reading 'angleter[r]e', referring to the iconography of the miniature representing Henry I of England with the royal arms of France (f. 301).
