Formerly bound with Petrus de Aliaco, De anima. Paris: Guy Marchant, 24 Sept. 1494 (Pr 7993), which was taken out for an exchange with the British Museum in 1913; see note by F[alconer] M[adan] inside the upper cover; also notes by G. D. Amery in ‘Exchange of Duplicate Incunabula with the BM' (Library Records c. 1054, fol. 14) where it is described as being unbound.

Wanting gathering t, which has been missing since the fifteenth/sixteenth century; a note on s8v in a fifteenth/sixteenth-century hand: ‘Hic deffic[it] .t.’

Binding: Seventeenth-century parchment; bound for the Bodleian Library; the gold stamp of the Library on both covers; two ties lost.

Size: 178 × 140 × 33 mm.

Size of leaf: 171 × 121 mm.

Four parchment endleaves from an early-thirteenth-century manuscript. The front endleaves contain Casus Decretorum. Had the leaves not been cut up, the full coverage of endleaf 1r-v would have been C. 7, from Gratian's introduction to c. 35 of q. 1. Endleaf 2r-v would have covered C. 11 q. 1 c. 39 to C. 11 q. 3 c. 41. The first rear endleaf would have covered C. 12 q. 5 c. 3 (in med.) to C. 13 q. 2 c. 29; the second would have covered C. 16 q. 3 c. 1 to C. 16 q. 4 c. 4(5). The Casus are either those of Benencasa or those of Bartholomaeus Brixiensis (a modernized version of those of Benencasa), with the latter being more likely.

Some early marginal annotations, pointing hands, ‘nota' marks, and underlining in the text in black ink.
