Sixteenth/seventeenth-century(?) foliation and title on [a1v]. Occasional marginal notes in a sixteenth/seventeenth-century hand in gathering [l]. Catchwords at the end of each gathering and registrum on [q10v] in a sixteenth-century hand. A note by Hand on the front pastedown: ‘This book contains notes by Milancthon(!)'. This claim, and a similar one made in the Kloß sale catalogue cannot be substantiated: Kloß sale catalogue, introduction p. xix claims that ‘the diversity of styles of hand-writing' is a characteristic feature of Melanchthon's autographs.

Epigraphic initials and paragraph marks are supplied in red.
