Copious early marginal notes, extracting names and key words or phrases; a few short notes comment on the text; ‘nota' marks and pointing hands, apparently in a single fifteenth/sixteenth-century hand.

Epigraphic initials are supplied in red or blue.

Provenance: Georg Franz Burkhard Kloß (1787-1854); book-label: see sale (1835), lot 1214, where it is listed as a folio. Not marked in the Bodleian copy of Kloß's sale catalogue; acquired between 1835 and 1847; see Catalogus (1843), Appendix 204 (with the date of imprint given as 1477); the shelfmark may indicate a date only slightly later than 1835.
