Script: The main part is copied by two hands: A (artt. 1-2), writing a careful Humanistica Textualis; B copied art. 3 in Southern Gothica Semitextualis; the first two pages of this section (ff. 5v-6r) are very faded and worn and are probably palimpsest.

Art. 3 opens with a 3-line decorated initial in black and orange, with penwork extensions in the left margin, and all majuscules in this part have red stroking.
Binding: Twentieth century. Blue and yellow marbled paper over pasteboard. Paper endleaves.
