Ownership: Coat of arms f. 13v: arms of the d'Astros (Toulouse) and St. Servais (Liege) families. Arms on doublures belong to Perkins family, perhaps book collector Henry Perkins (1778-1855)? Purchased for Spencer from Pecaro Inc., 1948.

Content: 5 historiated initials, accompanied by floreate borders with animal figures.
Content: De Ricci, Supplement, 332. Library dossier.
Content: Given the fragility of the manuscript, the description is based on information in the dossier. Photos may not be possible.
