Content: De Ricci, Supplement, 329. Chart by Dr. G.B. Guest.
Content: Manuscript is foliated 1-6, and then 1-225. First vellum leaf is not part of 12-folio quire structure, and thus is classed with first iv leaves. Folios 26-29 (numbered 20-23) are not vellum, but a rough woven substance, perhaps a kind of cloth?

Content: Sources disagree as to place and date this was written. De Ricci, Supplement, says England, early 15th century. Dr. Guest's chart says France?, perhaps Paris?, 13th century.
