On a parchment endleaf is a fifteenth-century drawing in brown ink of Hercules and Antaeus, attributed to Andrea Mantegna by an eighteenth-century inscription in French; now attributed to Lo Zoppo by Lilian Armstrong (see ‘A North Italian Drawing of Hercules and Antaeus in a German Incunable: Marco Zoppo(?) and Drawings in Renaissance Books', in Tributes to Jonathan J. G. Alexander: the Making and Meaning of Illuminated Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts, Art & Architecture (London and Turnhout, 2006), 5-19). On [a1r] a 10-line initial, made up from intertwining acanthus leaves, is supplied in gold with black highlighting, on a blue ground with gold filigree, within a frame of pale red and pink. In the lower margin is a coat of arms (see below). Other initials and paragraph marks are supplied in red or blue; red capital strokes.

The front endleaf is a pastedown from a former binding; on the recto is an early seventeenth-century inscription (possibly French): ‘Constitutiones Clemen[tis] pape cum apparatu Johannis Andreae', indicating that the endleaf already belonged with the book then. At the foot of the endleaf is an upside-down Hebrew inscription with a date of 1474(?), ownership inscription(?), before the leaf was used as a pastedown.
