In the opinion of Raymund Kottje - and subsequently also of Wilfried Hartmann - this codex as well as Vatican, Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, Reg. Lat. 837 are leges manuscripts (cf. references). However, Reg. Lat. 837 only contains works by Jean de Mandeville, so that there might be some confusion concerning the shelfmark. [Karl Ubl]
