Scribe and decorator: Yves Lucas; signed four places in the manuscript: on fol. 12v (Yvo Luce); on fol. 94 (Lucas); on fol. 150v (Lucas); and on fol. 216v, where he dated the manuscript (Y. Lucas. L'an mil iiii et ii furent escriptes et enlumines cestes matines a la ville de Nantes. Priez pour les trespasses que dieux les face merci. Amen).
Decoration: 11 half-page miniatures; many ornamental borders.
Artist: Master of the Coronation of the Virgin and Workshop.
Although the scribe wrote that the manuscript was written and illuminated in Nantes, scholars have pointed out that the Coronation Master worked in Paris. In addition, two border types on fols. 95r (a garland spiraling up a stem) and 153r (pots threaded along stem) are similar to those in manuscripts produced in Paris around 1400 (See, Millard Meiss, French Painting, 1974, pp. 104, 336, fig. 412).
