Manuscript on parchment (sheepskin?) of Roman de Gui de Warewic. With so-called Roman de Herolt d'Ardenne, in fact the final part of art. 1, dealing with Guy's son Reinbrun, followed by 4 verses apparently not found in other manuscripts. The manuscript is waterstained and considerably trimmed. Many lower edges are defective. Probably one hand, writing Northern Gothica Textualis Libraria, with often loops or bold and calligraphic extensions at the ascenders at the top line.

Red heightening of the majuscules. 2-line flourished initials in red and blue, with extensions in the margins or in the intercolumnar space; the alternance of red and blue initials is mostly not respected.
