Watermarks: mountain, var. Briquet 11663 or 11652?.
Script: Copied by one hand in small and even Gothica Hybrida Libraria with very few abbreviations. The Biblical themes with which the sermons open are by the same hand writing a large Northern Gothica Textualis Formata (Textus Rotundus) of mediocre quality.
Red headings and 3-line (4-line f. 1r) plain initials at the beginning of each sermon in the same colour.
Waterstains in the upper and in a lesser degree in the lower margins, but especially in the fold, where the text in the first part and towards the end of the codex is badly affected.
Binding: Contemporary quarter brown leather and square-edged wooden boards, the leather secured by means of a strip of parchment (largely lost) fixed with iron nails with floral engraved head. Spine repaired in parchment, three raised bands. Remnants of two clasps attached to the front cover; one engraved brass catch preserved on the rear cover. Handwritten title in ink at the top of the rear board, very faded: “Sermones Quadragesimales” (16th century?).
Manuscript on paper of Leonardus de Datis Florentinus OP (Leonardo Dati, c. 1365-1425), Sermones quadragesimales de flagellis peccatorum. Moral sermons for Lent addressed to a Florentine audience, each dealing with a particular vice.
ff. 90 : paper ; 280 x 210 mm.
