Physical Description:
ff. i + ii + 110 + i : paper ; 295 x 216 (210 x 125) mm.
Materials:
paper
Notes:
Watermarks, in gutter: unidentified mountain; a dragon perhaps similar in design to those produced in Ferrara in 1440s-50s, cf. Piccard Drache II.538-72.
Script: Copied in humanistic cursive by a single scribe, above top line.
Headings and some plain initials in red.
Ink has corroded through many leaves; minor loss of text.
Binding: Nineteenth century, Italy. Brick red goatskin, blind-tooled. Bound in the same style as MS 450 and Marston MSS 72, 86, 181, 182 for the Guarnieri-Balleani library (Iesi), with the first three probably by the same binder. Written in ink on tail edge: "MACROB". Two front parchment endleaves, presumably reused from the early binding given the patterns of rust stains and wormholes, consist of undated ecclesiastical records from the diocese of Cesena.
