Script: Written in humanistic cursive script with gothic features.
Headings and some marginalia in red (often faded), by two hands, the second of which ruled two parallel lines in lead for each line of headings that were added in a more upright gothic text hand.
Binding: ca. 1500, Northern Italy. Original sewing on three tawed skin, slit straps reinforced with fragments of a parchment manuscript (Lectionary?) set in channels on the outside of beech boards. The spine is lined with pieces of parchment manuscript, extending inside the boards between supports. Quarter bound in reddish brown leather with a blind-tooled floral roll along the edges (later but early?). Spine: multiple fillets at head, tail and outlining supports on the spine. Panels tooled with X's with fleurons around them and floral tools in squares on their points in the outer panels. Traces of two fastenings, the catches on the upper board. The lower board is cut in for straps. Title in ink near the head of the upper board ("Epistole Petr. de Vineis de gestis Friderici Romanorum Imperatoris II **") which is cracked and has been repaired.
Purchased from B. M. Rosenthal in 1954 by Thomas E. Marston.
