Description:
Watermark: anchor in a circle, topped by a star.
Script: Copied by three hands: A, the main hand, uses a rather bold Humanistica Cursiva Libraria; B, writing Humanistica Cursiva Currens, copied ff. 212r-213r and the greater part of f. 213v, where hand A takes over 7 lines from the bottom; C, writing a thin Humanistica Cursiva Libraria, copied ff. 1-2, clearly a replacement of two leaves copied by hand A.
There is no decoration.
At several places the ink on one side comes through at the other side and hampers the reading there; that will be the reason why the scribe left most of f. 54v and the whole of ff. 61v and 141v blank and continued the transcription on the next pages.
Binding: Sixteenth century. Badly rubbed and summarily repaired: reddish brown leather over light cardboard, blind-tooled with frames of strapwork and a large flower stamp; with a blind-tooled flap; the clasp on the latter and the catch in the middle of the front cover are missing. On the spine, in red: ‰ÛÏ77 [?]‰Û.
MS 94 in the collection of Bernard M. Rosenthal, Berkeley (CA). Purchased from him on the Edwin J. Beinecke Fund.
