Notes:
Script: Written by two scribes in a large round gothic bookhand. 1) ff. 1r-43v (16th century); 2) ff. 44r-50r (17th century). Scribe 2 attempts to replicate the work of Scribe 1, but uses 5-line staves rather than 4-line.
Decoration for ff. 1r-43v: initials, with foliage designs, in rectangular frame, often with ground uncolored; colors range from vibrant blue, yellow, and orange to olive green and dark purple. Initials for ff. 44r-50r, of similar design, with more subdued shades, and no frames.
Binding: Seventeenth century. Vellum stays, contemporary paper flyleaves and pastedowns. Original sewing on five supports attached to very thick, square wooden boards. Beaded and colored endbands. Red edges. Covered in brown calf (cow?) reinforced at spine with additional leather and straps nailed to the boards. Traces of a strap and pin fastening. Vellum label with notation "Antiphonar. Com. sanctorum" nailed to lower board. The badly warped upper board is reinforced with two strips of wood placed vertically on the upper surface.
Abstract:
Manuscript on paper (sturdy; staggered thumb holes at bottom of leaves) of Antiphons for suffrages. With liturgies and offices for various occasions. Written during the 16th century presumably for Franciscan use and supplemented during the 17th century; the second portion may have been added for use of the Reform Congregation of the Spanish Discalceates of which Peter of Alcantara was the founder.
