Script: Copied by two scribes. Hand A (ff. 1r-30r, 14) writes a careful Gothico-Humanistica Textualis Libraria; Hand B (ff. 30r, 15-91v) writes a more rapid Gothico-Humanistica Cursiva Libraria/Currens. The parts copied by the two scribes differ from each other also in the style of the text and the headings.
Numerous red paragraph marks in the left margins. The treatment of the headings is not consistent. 2-line (rarely 3-line, on f. 1r 4-line) initials in red at the head of all major subdivisions; they are plain initials on ff. 1r-30r, often flourished initials (black or red penwork) from f. 31r onwards, but the flourishing appears to have been blotted out.
Binding: Sixteenth century (?). Undecorated orange-brown sheepskin over pasteboard, the spine with three raised bands. Pastedowns and flyleaves from four leaves of an 11th-century manuscript, containing part of the Office for the burial of a monk.
Manuscript on parchment of an extremely detailed but not consistently structured list of sins with the mention in the margin whether they are mortal ("M") or venial ("V"; the latter case is very rare). The text consists of countless cases opening with a paragraph mark generally followed by "Si ...".
ff. i + ii + 91 + iv + i : parchment ; 195 x 135 mm.
