Chronicon pontificum et imperatorum
|Creator:||Martinus, Polonus, d. 1279|
|Type of Resource:|
Script: Art. 1 is probably copied by one hand writing Gothica Cursiva Libraria becoming more rapid towards the end. Art. 2 is written at various moments by one hand writing Gothica Cursiva Antiquior Currens in compressed and irregular lines, sometimes difficult to decipher.
In art. 1 the headings have not been executed (instructions for the rubricator in the lower margins in the first quire). Neither have the 2-line initials been executed, for which there are guide letters; the first initial only (a 3-line plain initial in black), f. 1r, has been made. Art. 2 is undecorated.
Many pages water-stained and damaged, especially the lower margins. F. 1 and art. 2 badly spoilt by the use of a reagent.
Binding: Fifteenth century. Quarter red leather (pigskin) and oak boards with rounded edges; the leather fixed on the boards with iron nails; sewn on three split leather thongs. Remnants of one strap attached to the rear board, with a brass pin in the front board. Part of the iron attachment for a chain preserved at the top of the rear board. Yellowish leather pastedowns, now detached.
Manuscript on paper of 1) Martinus Oppaviensis OP (Martinus Polonus, Martin of Troppau, d. 1278), Chronicon pontificum et imperatorum, with continuations up to pope Clemens VI (1342-1352). 2) Accounts and other documents from the years 1385-1403, dealing with farms in Germany.
