Provenance
Early provenance is unsubstantiated, but Eric C. White, head of Rare Books at the Bridwell Library at SMU, which owns another fragment of the same Bible, reports.
A note on the final page [Of Bridwell's fragment] in fifteenth-century script sheds light upon the manuscript's provenance from the Cistercian Abbey of Royaumont in the diocese of Beauvais, France: « This book was acquired by brother Gille de Roye, Abbey of Royaumont, from Jehan Guymier, library of Paris, by exchange made with him of four books of Kings and of Luke and John, glossed, which were duplicates in the library of Royaumont. Done the month of February in the year 1458 ».
Modern provenance begins in 1839, when the rare-book collector nonpareil, Sir Thomas Phillipps, acquired from Paris bookseller E. Tross a volume of the Gospels of Luke and John (entire glossed Bibles originally ran 20 volumes or more, and full sets are unknown; Luke and John were always bound in one volume, and Matthew and Mark in another), of which our fragment was a part. While in his collection, it was catalogued as Phillipps 13805. After his death, the manuscript was sold at Sotheby's on April 27, 1903 in Part XII of the extraordinary, decades-long Phillips Sale, Lot # 457. It was then acquired by Sir Sydney Cockerell (possibly at the aforementioned Sotheby's sale), and then descended to his son Christopher in 1962. According to Schoenberg, in the period between 1903 and 2005, the manuscript was also sold and/or owned by Robinson's, (1949, Catalogue # 78, Lot 21), Leighton (?), Philpot (?), and Spurgeon's College, becoming their MS #1. Between 2003 and 2005, the John/Luke volume was fractioned and dispersed; some of the fragments, including the present, were offered at Sotheby's in 2005, Lot no. 2, Sale L05241, Western Manuscripts and Miniatures. By early 2006, the fragment was owned by J. V. Maraglino Fine Books. I bought it from him, through eBay auction 7007327925, in mid March, 2006 for $16,484.00.

Gilles de Roye, d'une noble famille picarde, chroniqueur et théologien. Il entra, adolescent, chez les Cisterciens, fit ses études de théologie à Paris, et professa pendant 19 ans dans diffèrents collèges. A 60 ans il se démit de ses fonctions d'abbé de Royaumont pour se retirer au couvent des Dunes (Belgique), consacrant son temps à la méditation et à l'étude. Il mourut à l'abbaye de Sparmaillé, près de Bruges, en 1478. On lui doit une chronique historique, abrégée de celle de Jean Brando (+ 1428), moine des Dunes. Elle fut poursuivie par Adrien de Budt jusqu'en 1479. On la trouve imprimée, Opus vastum Chronodromi seu chronici ab origine mundi usque ad annum 1414. auctore Joanne Brandone, S.T.D. ac religiosi Dunensis; in compendium redactum et ab anno 1431 usque ad 1479 productum ab AEgidio de Roya, dans Rerum Belgicarum annales, publié à Francfort en 1620.
