Binding: 15th-16th centuries. Original sewing on three thick, double, vegetable fiber cords laced and pegged in grooves in wooden boards. The grooves for the endband cores, which are also vegetable fiber, start on the spine edge of the boards. The spine of the bookblock is cut off at an angle at head and tail so the braided endbands extend very little beyond the edges. The spine is square and lined all along with tawed skin which extends to the inside of the boards. Covered in tawed skin, originally pink, with two labels at the head of the upper board; on the first, "Passionale ad aduentum domini usque ad festum mathie sancte [?] sermonum collectio [?]," on the second, "G.27". Five round bosses on each board and two strap and pin fastenings, the pins on the upper one. Lower board detached, bosses and fastenings wanting.
Stamp of the Kingsley Trust Association (f. 1r) which presented it to Yale in 1951.
Manuscript on paper, composed of two distinct sections, of various religious tracts, mostly unidentified, including Jacobus de Voragine, Legenda aurea; Pseudo-Augustine, Sermo de annuntiatione beatae virginis mariae.
