Watermarks: unidentified letter P in gutter. Script: Written by a single scribe in gothic cursive, with a smaller script for glosses. Simple initials in red at the beginning of each letter; titles preceded by paragraph marks, and underlined, in red. Binding: 19th-20th centuries. Vellum case; spine fragile and splitting.
Manuscript on paper (sturdy) of Cicero, Epistolae ad familiares. Marginal and interlinear notes accompany the text of each letter (except for that to P. Vatinius appearing on ff. 26v-27v which was copied twice, apparently in error). Written probably for use as a school text (vocabulary lists on ff. 4 and 9).
