Script: Written by multiple scribes in spiky early gothic bookhand. Spaces left unfilled, f. 1r, for initials and headings at beginning of prologue and text. Decorative monochrome initials and headings, which extend the width of columns, of modest quality, in red (many oxidized). Minor initials, 5- to 2-line, some with simple penwork designs, headings, initial strokes in red. Many leaves damaged along outer edges, now repaired, but with loss of text; stained throughout. Binding: 1800-1810, Italy. Half bound in mottled brown calf with bright pink paper sides. Two gold-tooled, brick red labels on spine: "Greg. Pape. in Ezechiel." and "Saecul. XIII". Red edges. Bound in the same distinctive style as Marston MSS 50, 125, 128, 135, 151, 153, 158, 197, also from the Cistercian abbey of Hautecombe. Acquired from C. A. Stonehill in 1957 by Thomas E. Marston.
Manuscript on parchment (poor quality: thick, holes, ends, repairs) of Gregory the Great, Homeliae in Hiezechielem prophetam. Written perhaps at the Cistercian abbey of Hautecombe to which it belonged.
