folio 1

Paris, Bibliothèque nationale, Lat. 5762: Sallust, The Conspiracy of Catiline and the Jugurthine War, 1404-1405. Copy made for Jean Lebègue. The Jugurthine Wars (fols. 37-108) were added to the manuscript in the 1430s (Hedeman, 2006, p. 179). Lat. 5762 has been considered a twin of Lat. 9684. This is supported that the same decorator was responsible for the decoration of the frontispieces of both manuscripts. Hedeman notes that the same scribe and decorator are responsible for the original portions of both manuscripts.
