[between 1100 and 1200]
Physical Description:
ff. 91 : parchment ; ca. 315 x 185 (260 x 125) mm.
Notes:
Script: Written by multiple scribes of varying degrees of accomplishment in late caroline minuscule and early gothic bookhand.
One decorated 5-line initial (rubbed) on f. 1r, constructed of interlacing bands in parchment, outlined in brown ink against an irregular red ground. Plain red initials, some of which are drawn vertically rather than upright, and often with small red pearl designs, appear to be executed by many different hands. Instructions to rubricator in upper margin of f. 1r. Guide letters for decorator.
Binding: Twelfth century, Italy. Original sewing on two tawed pigskin slit straps. The sewing supports and endband cores are laced through a tawed skin spine lining (from a palimpsest?) which extends about 50 mm. on either side and is turned in at head and tail. There is a fragment of finely woven cloth caught up by the lower sewing support and kettle stitch. Chevron endbands on tawed skin straps, one of which extends across the lower side under the lower turn-in. The lower side is reinforced with two irregular pieces of vellum. A flush, tawed skin cover with overlapping corners and irregular turn- ins, wide at the fore edge. Stubs of fastenings which are extensions of the supports. Contemporary title in ink on upper cover: "liber intitulatur de habitu monachorum". Decorative panel containing a drawing of an unidentified animal smeared blue and/or green within a border of brown circles, on lower side.
