Description:
Manuscript on parchment. Size of leaves and written space varies widely. Composition of volume is irregular; accurate collation impossible. Many leaves repaired or trimmed. Some leaves or portions of leaves used to complete sections were inserted sideways or pasted over another part of the manuscript. Written by several scribes in liturgical gothic bookhand or square and disjointed humanistic script, both of which have been influenced by printing.
Decorated with initials and partial borders cut from earlier manuscripts, none of high quality; penwork decoration added to portions pasted in. Twenty engravings, woodcuts and drawings, colored by hand, also pasted in and surrounded by simple borders in red ink. Crude 1-line initials in red and faded purple. Square notes on 4-line red staves. Rubrics throughout.
Eighteenth-century binding: Brown calf with a gold-tooled spine and parts of two fastenings.
Cataloged from microfilm by Albert Derolez.
