Notes
Ownership: Note on f. 1?
Content: Dictionary Catalog.
Content: The catalog states that the two texts are "bound together", suggesting a composite ms; the decoration of the two differs but the hands are so similar and the quire structure is consistent, so it has been treated here as a non-composite ms with 2 texts.
Content: 1 scribe?
Content: 2-line and 3-line initials and fields in many colors: white, green, orange, blue, pink etc., with design extending into border. After f. 104, 1-line to 3-line blue and red initials become more prevalent. Rubrics, red slashes as placemarkers.
Content: 42 lines per page in two columns, ruled in brown ink. Prickmarks, quire signatures and some catchwords visible. Collation: one quire of 11 folios, followed by 26 quires of ten folios each, followed by one quire of four folios.
Content: Catalog dates to ca. 1400; note on f. 275v says 1393.
