Script: Part I (ff. 1r-78v): Written by a single scribe in a bold upright notarial script. Part II (ff. 91r-110v): Written in a clear notarial script by a single scribe; later writers have added the initials, offset in margins, for the major sections of text (sometimes inaccurately) and the notes on ff. 109v-110v.
Crude drawings include a falconer with birds, f. 103v, and a ghost (?), f. 103r.
The pattern of stains suggests the two parts were originally bound separately. Stained throughout; some ink blotches affect text.
Binding: Nineteenth century. Brown calf over wooden boards, blind-tooled. Red-brown, gold-tooled label. Parchment reinforcements between quires.
Collection of Sir Thomas Phillipps (no. 8826). Acquired by Yale from Laurence Witten in 1956, as the gift of Edwin J. and Frederick W. Beinecke.
