Script: Copied by one hand writing a careful Humanistica Textualis with wide distance between the lines. Lower section of leaves, especially of first and last quires, badly waterstained, causing loss of text. Quires strengthened by means of parchments stays at inner and at outer side. Space for 2-line initials has been reserved (for a 3-line initial on f. 1r). The words following a planned initial and the explicit formulas are in Capitalis. Binding: Original, blind-tooled, over wooden boards. Remnants of three clasps attached to the front cover with three nails each, one at each edge of the cover, and three pentagonal brass catches on the rear cover. Remnants of five bosses.
