Description:
Script: Artt. 1 and 3 are copied by one hand, writing Gothica Cursiva Libraria. Art. 2 is by another hand writing a larger and more coarse Gothica Semihybrida Libraria.
Red stroking of the majuscules and red paragraph marks; red headings, in Hybrida in artt. 1 and 3, in Textualis in art. 2. Red plain 2-3-line initials.
Collation is difficult due to the tight binding and the fact that the fold of ff. 2-5 has been repaired by means of strips of paper. There is a horizontal catchword at right on f. 24v. Parchment ff. 15 and 34 are both singletons with a stub (visible between ff. 14 and 15 and 33 and 34 respectively), through which the sewing cord passes. Probable extent of the quires: I (ff. 1-5), II (ff. 6-24), III (ff. 25-42).
Binding: Twentieth century, by P. Dusel (1993). Dark blue morocco over cardboard, the edges of the boards decorated with a gold-tooled fillet ending on small lilies. On the flat spine the gold-tooled title "PROPRIETATES RERUM".
There is a modern foliation at the bottom of the pages and another, incorrect one in the upper corners. The former is followed here.
