Script: Written in uptight informal batarde by a single scribe. Ordinary blue initials, 2-line, on ff. 1r and 76r, with crude penwork designs in red. Plain 1-line initials, paragraph marks, headings, and letter strokes, as well as some corrections, in red. Binding: 16th-17th centuries. Wooden boards, slightly cut in at the fore-edge for two catches on the upper cover and covered in brown calf, blind-tooled in a curvilinear design, are probably early. The rest of the stab-sewn, rebacked binding obviously is not. Upper board detached, fastenings wanting.
Manuscript on paper of 1) Das Leiden Ihesu Christi. 2) Prayers for a woman.
