One leaf only, l4, 274 × 186 mm, containing the end of the ninth fable of the fourth book (the fox, the wolf and the lion).
Bound in a guard-book of fragments.
The leaf was once used in a binding and is now mounted. The inner margin is heavily mutilated.
The following note, in the hand of Richard Rawlinson, in the lower margin: ‘This is a pecie of an old Reynard ye Fox as I think'. Two alterations of the text have been attempted on the recto, but have been almost lost because of mutilation.
Provenance: Richard Rawlinson (1690-1755); marginal note. Presumably acquired as part of the bequest of R. Rawlinson.
SHELFMARK: Rawl. fol. 1(8).
