Script: Written mostly by one scribe, perhaps over a period of time, in a small gothic book hand with many abbreviations. Additions by slightly later hands in more or less formal script, e.g. ff. 1v, 3r-5v, 87v-105v. Initials (3-line), paragraph marks, underlining and strokes on 1-line capitals in red. Binding: Date? Square, flush boards. Trimmed out turn-ins suggest a late date. Covered in vellum with contents and a compass-drawn circle on lower cover.
