Mis-foliated; no folio 31. Script: one scribe, writing a sloping cursive Humanistic script. Some outer or upper margins (ff. 12, 27), and on f. 1 the outer lower corner, are defective, causing the loss of small text parts. The leaves are stained (ff. 20-21 especially), and the paper is badly damaged by the corrosive ink. Binding: original (?) quarter cardboard binding, the spine in stained parchment.
