Manuscript on paper (with parchment of poor quality for inner and outer bifolios of each gathering). A collection of sermons and materials for the construction of sermons which has been carefully provided by its writer with an extensive apparatus to facilitate use: full running titles; contemporary Arabic numeration in upper corner for each sermon; brackets within the text, distinguished by Arabic numerals and symbols in margins to indicate text divisions, and multiple tables at end of volume. Written by two scribes in Secretary script: Scribe 1 (pp. 1-141) uses a looped d and catchwords enclosed by simple brown and red scrolls; Scribe 2 (pp. 142-502) uses an unlooped d and catchwords enclosed by decorated and/or shaded scrolls, in brown and red. Belonged to Sir Thomas Phillipps (no. 2768; tag on spine, inscription on p. 1). Presented to Yale in 1933 by Henry Barrett Hinckley. Watermarks: unidentified crown in gutter. Flourished initials, 3- to 2-line, red with blue designs and vice versa throughout manuscript. Brackets, initial strokes and underlining, in red, throughout. Opening words or line of each sermon in a careful text hand. Binding: Nineteenth-century. Half bound in brown calf, blind-tooled, with a gold-tooled title (Sermones) on spine; dark blue cloth sides. Impression of oval label in upper register of spine. Cataloged from microfilm by Albert Derolez. Cite as: Conrad of Saxony, Sermons.
