|Type of Resource:|
Script: Part I (ff. 1-10): Copied by one hand writing Praegothica with wide distance between the lines. Part II (ff. 11-22): Copied by one hand in Gothico-Humanistica Libraria.
Part I: Red (?) chapter headings in larger script written at the right of the text. Red paragraph marks. Red heightening of majuscules on ff. 1r and 10 v only. 2-line (exceptionally 1- or 3-line) early flourished initials in red with red flourishing (red filling on f. 10r). 5-line red, blue and white initial with strapwork decoration on f. 1r. Part II: Chapter headings in red, centered. Red 2-line plain initials (Capitalis).
Part II adapted to the size of part I by pasting strips of parchment to the bottom of the bifolios. The five outer bifolios (ff. 11-15 and 18-22) are palimpsest: leaves from a manuscript in two columns, the text transversal to the textus rescriptus; the inner bifolium (ff. 16-17) is of bad quality; the upper corners of ff. 11 and 22 are missing with loss of text and have been repaired with blank parchment.
Binding: Twentieth century. Wooden boards and brown calf spine. Endleaves are fragments of a Missal (Italy, 15th century).
