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.
Manuscript on paper and parchment of Proprietates rerum moralizatae. Moral encyclopaedic treatise (not related to the work of Bartholomaeus Anglicus, De proprietatibus rerum), arranged alphabetically from "Advocatus" to "Viridarium".
