On paper. Ancient limp parchment binding. In spite of the very uneven script probably copied by one hand hesitating between Southern Gothica Textualis and Semitextualis Libraria/Formata. Probably written and illuminated in the Veneto. The s. XVII note "Viennae" in the upper margin of f. 1r seems to indicate that the manuscript was in Austria at some time.
