Copy number: G-256(1)

Wanting the blank leaf [a1], and the sheet [l3.6], the missing text being supplied in manuscript form; [x1] and [x6] are duplicated.

Apparently formerly bound with a copy of Jodocus Clichtoveus, Sermones. Cologne: Peter Quentel, 1535; see James, Catalogus (1605), 62 and 45; this copy seems no longer to be in the Library; the present copy, currently bearing the shelfmark L 1.15 Jur., was formerly shelved at C 17. 7 Th., and was clearly (from the armorial stamp on its binding) purchased with money given by Henry Percy 9th Earl of Northumberland.

Binding: Nineteenth-century blind-tooled brown calf, a ‘numbered binding'; with the running number of the binder; bound for the Bodleian Library c.1820; the gold stamp of the Library on both covers.

Size: 320 × 208 × 38 mm.

Size of leaf: 315 × 192 mm.

Early inscription, partly cropped, in the upper margin of [c1r], ending: ‘ . . . Sigismundo 1430.’

On [c1r] an 18-line initial is supplied in blue with reserved white decoration. Other initials, paragraph marks and capital strokes are supplied in red.

Provenance: Probably the copy mentioned in the Benefactors' Register I 8, given in 1600 by George Carey, 2nd Lord Hunsdon (1547-1603); see Jensen, ‘Benefactors' Register', no. 13.

Former Bodleian shelfmark: C 12. 7 Th.; see James, Catalogus (1605), 62.
