Notes
Ownership: R.L. Stuart collection (no. 13871), bequeathed 1892.
Content: 42-5 lines in two columns, ruled in dark pencil, prickings and some catchwords visible. Also notes of content in lower margins.
Content: Modern boards covered with leaf from choir book.
Content: At openings of books, large red and blue initials with puzzle design and penwork. Small red and blue initials and placefinders throughout. Content notes in bottom and top margins. Vellum tabs as placemarkers attached to outer margins.
Content: Both De Ricci and Dr. Guest date this to the 13th century, but Guest adds a question mark. De Ricci does not localize the ms; Dr. Guest places it in France, again with a query.
Content: De Ricci, 1317. Chart by Dr. G.B. Guest.
Content: Parchment
Content: Single leaf used as binding.
Content: The outer dimension measurement represents the front cover of the manuscript, since it would damage the binding to unfold and measure it. Neither source gives a place or date for this leaf.
Content: Two illuminated initials -- one blue on gold and red field, the other red on blue field. Vines and flowers in many colors (green, red, blue, gold) extend from first initial into margin.
