Binding: Twentieth-century half dark blue morocco, with blue cloth; bound for the Bodleian Library. Given that the decoration in the two items is in the same style, this suggests that the two were probably travelling together from soon after c.1491, but were subsequently split up (probably by Baer).

Occasional marginal annotations.
Two-line to seven-line initials, many with extensions into the margins, are supplied in red. Apparently in the same style as the decoration in item 1. Early manuscript title on the blank leaf a1r.
